Peter Pan & Wendy


Peter Pan & Wendy is a new telling of a classic tale. The film follows Wendy Darling, a youthful girl seeking to escape boarding school, crosses paths with Peter Pan, a boy steadfast in his determination to remain forever young. Accompanied by her brothers and Tinker Bell, Wendy embarks on a journey to the enchanting realm of Neverland, where they confront a malevolent pirate captain.

What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of Peter Pan & Wendy.

The Good

One of the things I liked most about Peter Pan & Wendy is that it emphasized the Native American perspective by delving into the culture related to Tiger Lily. It provided a nuanced portrayal, shedding light on their traditions, beliefs, and interactions within the context of Neverland. The movie made a deliberate effort to showcase the Native American side of the story, contributing to a more inclusive and diverse representation in the overall storyline.

The Bad

While Peter Pan & Wendy is a retelling of a classic, the plot felt disappointingly cliché, recycling the same old storylines we've seen countless times before. Despite a promising cast and production, the film failed to bring a fresh perspective, leaving audiences with a sense of déjà vu. I also did not enjoy the villain redemption arch that they added to Captain Hook, although I will concede that this could be the creators attempt at an innovative twist to the stories normal narrative.

My Overall Opinion

I give Peter Pan & Wendy a depressing 4 out of 10.
