Movie Review: DuckTales the Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp

DuckTales the Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp
Director: Bob Hathcock
Voice actors: Alan Young, Christopher Lloyd, Terence McGovern, Russi Taylor
Walt Disney Animation France S.A., Walt Disney Pictures, 1990.
Scrooge McDuck and the ducklings Huey, Dewey and Louie and Webby are searching for the treasure of Collie Baba, in the spirit of Indiana Jones. Evil wizard Merlock steals the treasure but misses the magic lamp. The lamp contains a genie boy who becomes friends with the ducklings. Webby makes some funny wishes that cause some trouble. Eventually the lamp gets into wrong hands and Scrooge and the ducklings have to break into Scrooge's money bin Mission Impossible style.
Launchpad knows how to fly but not how to land
Treasure ahead!
The animation quality is somewhere between video animation and Disney movie animation. The movie feels like prolonged Ducktales episode. Scrooge's pilot Launchpad McQuack, butler Duckworth and Mrs. Beakley also get enough screen time. Nice and nostalgic adventure with Scrooge McDuck and DuckTales characters.
Genie and Webby play tea party.
Rating: Good
