Hey, I remember in the late 80's or early 90's I saw a made-for-tv-movie adaptation of Journey to the Center of the Earth that I really liked. The characters included this white-furred Wookie-like dude and this Darth Vader-like villain. Does anybody here besides me remember this?

Is this it? with Treat Williams?

Nope, I've seen that one too. That one was set in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century. The one I'm talking about was set in the modern day. That one that you speak of was made in 1999. The one I'm talking about was made in somewhere around 1990/91 I'm guessing.

Here's two more. Not much info other than rotten reviews:

The second one is directed by the infamous Albert Pyun.


I saw the Treat Williams one. I kind of liked it-I like all those Hallmark things. I didn't remember any Wookies though, and now we know why.

Well, I don't see any pictures, would really like to see some screenshots of the version I saw, but I'm pretty sure that it was the 1993 version. The plot and the date looks really on target to me. Especially the mentioning of the volcano, I think that's how that Vader-like villain got injured and thus was wearing an artificial breathing suit like Vader.
