Now, while I was going out to see the Spongebob movie yesterday (which for the record was actually WAY better than I expected it to be), I saw a trailer that showing before the movie that kind of gave me a confused feeling. It was a trailer for the movie Pan. I know it's not a Disney movie, but it has Peter Pan in it, and I have a lot to say about it, so that makes me feel like I HAVE to address it. Here's the trailer:
Now, I'm not very familiar with the story of Peter Pan admittedly, so I'm not sure what to think of this movie to be honest with you. Because to me, the trailer gives me the feeling the movie is trying to force in a dark, gritty feel towards Peter Pan and the world of Neverland. Is ths really necessary? You're not directing Inception. It's flipping Peter Pan. Wasn't the story more light-hearted than this? I'm not sure, but I digress. However, I will give the film credit for some things, though. They actually a boy to play Peter Pan, a little boy, because in most live-action interpretations, they a lot of the time have him played by a girl. And I do see potential in Hugh Jackman playing Blackbeard, the supposed villain. But there are a lot of things that confuse me as well, such as I said, the forced gritty tone and apparently, Captain Hook is a good guy in this movie and his name is actually NOT Captain Hook. It's James Hook. So, is it a prequel?
Overall, I'm not sure about this. While some things do look cool, there are some things that bother me. What do you think?
