The New Swiss Family Robinson is a 1998 adventure film directed by Stewart Raffill. The film is based on The Swiss Family Robinson and stars Jane Seymour, David Carradine, James Keach, John Mallory Asher, Blake Bashoff, and Jamie Renée Smith.[1]


When Jack Robinson gets a new job in Australia, he decides to take his wife Ann, sons Shane and Todd and daughter Elisabeth 'Lizzy' by sailing yacht from Hong Kong to Sydney. The gun he gets thrown in by Sheldon Blake proves disabled, and for a sinister reason: near Borneo, Blake's men turn up to capture them. The family escapes but loses the yacht on a reef. They build a camp on an island. But the pirates keep coming back, and the boys discover why: he hid a treasure in the yacht. Shane is also discovered and captured in more than one way by French plane wreck survivor Françoise, a French-speaking Asian girl and airplane crash survivor who has been surviving on the island since her airplane crashed. Upon the Robinsons being formally introduced to Françoise, she later teams up with the family.
