    Additional Features

    The Peter Pan DVD's extras are broken up into pint-size morsels for kids to enjoy--and adults to click a lot on the remote. Vignettes on flying, casting, computer effects, characters, or simple behind-the-scenes footage are just some of various segments contained in five "worlds." Be sure to "Visit the Darling House" to find a deleted scene and an alternate ending (which has the original book's ending of Pan returning). "Board the Pirate Ship" to see Jason Isaacs's (Capt. Hook) cute "home movies" from the set and a cut pirate song. The longest segment (12 minutes) is a puffy promotional piece hosted by Sarah Ferguson that goes over everything lightly, including the history of the tale. Note: this film would be a perfect candidate to have both a pan-and-scan and widescreen presentation on the same disc. The widescreen 2.40:1 ratio is pretty extreme for those who don't like seeing black bars on their set, but the film is so gorgeous you'll miss a lot on the full-screen edition. --Doug Thomas

    Format:DVD
    I do not think that most kids can appreciate how great of a movie P.J. Hogan has made with this new version of "Peter Pan." However you really have to be familiar with not only all of the various versions of the story from Disney to Steven Spielberg but also J. M. Barrie's original plays and books to really appreciate everything that is in this movie. Hogan's purpose was to go back to that original material, but it is impossible not to touch upon everything that has come since then. My generation cannot hear the words "I do believe in fairies" without thinking of Mary Martin beckoning out from our television sets beseeching us to clap (or when Smee turns and gives an aside to the viewer).
    On the one hand there are the fantastic elements as Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter) and the Darling children Wendy (Rachel Hurd-Wood), John (Harry Newell), and Michael (Freddie Popplewell) fly off to Never-Land. But this is a more realistic Never-Land than every before for all the wonderful computer generated images. More importantly, these are more realistic children than ever before. Peter Pan is the boy who will never grow up, but he is also on the cusp of puberty, as is Wendy. Into the Darling household comes Aunt Millicent (Lynn Redgrave), who insists that Wendy is not a girl anymore and while her father should start looking for marital prospects at the bank where he works, the more immediate goal is to move her out of the bedroom she shares with her brothers. When Peter Pan appears on the windowsill and requires his shadow to be sewn back onto this feet, Wendy not only does the sewing but accepts his offer to come to Never-Land because she too desperately wants to avoid growing up.
    In this "Peter Pan" a kiss is more than just a thimble.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "Second star to the right and straight on til morning!" January 10, 2004
    This live-action version of Peter Pan stars Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook and Jeremy Sumpter as Peter. The story begins in London, where motherless Peter has come to listen to stories told by young Wendy (Rachel Hurd-Wood). He takes her and her brothers to Neverland to live the wild pirate life, until it is time for them to return home and grow up.

    All the characters you remember from your childhood are here: The ticking crocodile (computer-animated and scary), the fiesty Indian Princess, funny Pirate Smee, spunky Tinkerbelle, and even Nana, the dog-nanny. The film is photographed almost entirely in dark, moody lighting to heighten the feeling of magic and danger. Jason Isaacs hams it up just right as the dashing and outrageous Captain Hook and he is good as the timid clerk, Mr. Darling. Jeremy Sumpter looks just like Peter should look - beautiful, cocky, and fun-loving.

    Definitely darker and more sinister than the old Disney version, this film has a lot to offer adults: It is visually stunning and reminds us about the innocence and fun of childhood. It's an interesting movie that will put a smile on your face and perhaps a few wistful tears in your eye.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "That was no Thimble!" January 4, 2004
    The last time J. M. Barrie's infamous creation hit the big screen was in the lacklustre "Return to Neverland", the latest in a long line of pitiful animated sequels that the Disney Company have been mechanically churning out. The time before that was in Steven Spielberg's critically ill-received "Hook". With these two movies as a somewhat stale background for writer/director P. J. Hogan's attempt to recreate the fairytale, it was not surprising if audiences at large were somewhat cynical.
    But children's literature translated onto the big screen is always successful when it is done faithfully and respectfully, and that is precisely what Hogan and his team have done. For the first time ever (if you can believe it) a young boy plays the part of the Boy Who Never Grew Up: Jeremy Sumpter, complete with bare feet, pan pipes and captivating smile. Following in the pantomime tradition, Jason Issacs plays both George Darling and Captain Hook, meek and clumsy in one role, charismatic and brutal in the next. Ultimately a figure to be pitied, Hook is more aware of his dependence on Pan than he lets on, and the two are more similar than either would like to admit.
    Olivia Williams plays the beautiful and graceful Mrs Darling, whilst Richard Briers makes a humorous Smee, often making side-comments directly to the audience. John, Michael and the Lost Boys are played by some wonderful child actors, in particular Slightly (Theodore Chester) who creates most of the laughs for the movie: "Okay boys, look lovable." Ludivine Sagnier takes on the rather difficult role of Tinkerbell.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Can Happen December 25, 2003
    By A Customer
    Ahoy, matey! There be quibbles ahead!
    They're not dangerous, says you.
    Fair warned is fair armed, says I.
    Overall, "Peter Pan" is a delightful, beautiful presentation from Australian director PJ Hogan. After the Sturm und Drang of "Lord of the Rings" and hairball of "Cat in the Hat", this movie is very welcome. No Hollywood comedian under formulaic siege from terrorist five year olds, as in "Cheaper by the Dozen" - a clone of "Daddy Day Care".
    Avast there! Don't set your course for movies like that, matey. See "Peter Pan"! Pay attention to the rating, but I believe its okay for your little mateys older than 6. After we saw it this morning, we saw it twice more today. That's how much we liked it.
    The story most people know is from the Disney cartoon, or even better, the beloved, little fairy play written a hundred years ago by Sir JM Barrie. Few today have read the original novel. It reads like a bedtime story, told to us kindly, gently before we drift off to where dreams and Neverland are born. It's funny and scary, full of children's nonsense; and yet, it lets wistful adults wink at it, too. It is, also, a period piece of its time. The play and novel, chained in Edwardian slang, societal roles, and conventions, do not translate well today. Contemporary productions usually navigate these shoals and reefs to disaster.
    The eponymous reference is, of course, to the mythological god and shepherd of the forests. By extension, he is a manifestation of the cross-cultural archetype of spring, the Green Man, who, dressed in leaves, comes from the forest to take his consort, a flower maiden, back with him. Peter Pan is also a victim of contemporary pop psychology -- enough said there, but football widows will understand.
