I got excited when I first heard about it, but then the more I read about it and saw different previews the more I was turned off by it. It looks like it was well made, for a TV movie, but it seems like whoever wrote the movie has never read a Peter Pan book because there's so many things wrong with it. Plus if I see one more of, anything, about "Peter and Hook lik3 totally being BFFS!!1! lol" I think I'm gonna rip my hair out.
They also stole Elizabeth Bonnie from the pirate group I'm in. Totally not cool! :/
Hahaha, yeah you're right it looks totally wrong for Pan, which is why I said I didn't think I'd be interested. It's just the cast. But anyway I doubt I'll ever see it because it probably won't air on any of the channels I get.
Yeah, the casting's really weird. When I first saw the dude playing Hook I was like "What the hell, he looks like a blond Alan Rickman...and he talks like a blond Alan Rickman..." It's just bad...
As for airing, it was supposed to be on SyFy Channel this summer, but I hadn't seen anything about it, it's not Comcast, there's no clips of it on youtube, nothing. I remember it was supposed to be a "syfy movie" originally, but now I'm seeing things about it being broken apart into a 4 part mini-series, I dunno. Maybe if it hits Amazon as a DVD or is on iTunes I'll check it out, but I don't wanna go around hunting for it. Peter Pan In Scarlet, I'm really excited about, that movie's supposed to come out next summer, but this...eh. haha
Yeah, I saw it when it aired on SyFy back in December, it's awful. It's like the writers didn't even know that James Barrie ACTUALLY wrote a prequel to Peter Pan. An no, Peter and Hook were not "friends" they didn't even know each other. According to the dates in the Little White Bird (Peter Pan prequel), Peter was born a good 100 years before Hook was and arrived in Neverland long before Hook did. It's implied that Hook didn't even know who Peter was until after his crew reached Neverland. The movie itself was really pretty, the set designs were amazing, but everything else was kinda just crap. Though whoever they got to play Starkey was absolutely PERFECT! He reminded me a lot of the Starkey from Fox's Peter Pan. They didn't even try to be accurate here, so we can't even give them points for creative effort, it was just bad. And the only blonde Hook I will ever accept is Danny Kaye 'cause he was awesome as Hook.
Yeah, I was sitting there going "Oh my god what the hell am I watching? lol" And I actually didn't even think the set designs were great either. It was obviously 99% blue screen. ^.^ I'm just glad I finally got to see it for myself so now I can make fun of it to my heart's content. lol
