End that’s exactly where the invention gets before the professor even finishes his work. Luckily, he has an assistant, engineer Hart, who intervenes just in time to save the world from villain pirate. The film is notable especially for its animation. The visual style faithfully recreates the original engravings from his novels so that the film looks as if it was made by Jules Verne himself.
