Leland Hawkins is a minor character in the 2002 film, Treasure Planet.

Role in the film

At some point prior to Treasure Planet, Leland married Sarah and some time later had a boy named Jim on the planet Montressor. When Jim was still young, his father left the planet for unknown reasons leaving his wife and son without support. He possibly left because he couldn't handle the responsibility of a father and a husband, he could have left because he wanted to see the galaxy or he left to seek a means to provide a better life for his family.

After he left, Sarah had since having problems with raising Jim who had grown into a carefree and problematic teenager due to lacking a role model.



  • His fate differs differently in both the film and the book:
    • In Treasure Island, he dies of illness.
    • In Treasure Planet, he leaves Planet Montressor.
  • Leland has at least one similarity to Cassim.
    • Both left their wives and young sons in order to find a better life for the poverty-stricken family.
  • Although his name is not mentioned in the movie, it is shown in the Treasure Planet art book that it is Leland Hawkins.
  • The art book also mentions he may have been around 19 when he married Jim's mother.
