If you watched the trailer of the upcoming Disney+ movie Peter Pan & Wendy, you may have noticed that it has a different feeling than usual. Even though it is an exciting tale, there are parts that make us think about why Peter Pan does what he does. This was confirmed in an interview with TotalFilm Magazine by David Lowery (the director and one of the screenwriters for this movie).
In the interview, Lowery said that the script he and Halbrooks (the writers for Pete’s Dragon) worked on is different from the classic Peter Pan movie from 1953. He wanted to show us a new side of Peter by exploring his “not very nice” sides. Many of these moments will be through Jude Law’s eyes as he plays Pan’s enemy, Captain Hook. Lowery shared why he chose Law to play Hook and gave some insight into the villain character.
Now, I’m going to reword the complex words and ideas in the passage so that it’ll be easy for a thirteen-year-old to take away the key information of it.
We wanted to know why Captain Hook has so much anger towards Peter Pan. So, we tried our best to create a story and backstory for them both, with the goal of making it interesting and emotional. We needed an actor who can act like a proper villain at times but then will also make you feel very sad when necessary – and there’s no one better for this than him!
David Lowery has shared that his new movie, Peter Pan and Wendy, is his favorite project he’s ever worked on.
