Peter Pan / Re: How does he grow at all?
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:27:18 PM »
I've kind of thought he visited outside neverland so many times as well that he does age just slightly just much slower because of his bouts outside of neverland. A couple hours here and there you know?

Peter Pan / Re: Peter Pan quote?

Yeah that's probably where it came from...I'd never have put that together with that quote but while reading makes sense...unless they pulled it from something else that WAS Peter Pan but i doubt it heh

We just finally watched Return to Neverland as we bought a box set a while back that had the first Pan...Return and Tinkerbell in it. I don't remember it in either Pan movies..I'd have to go back and re-watch Tink. Definitely wasn't in Hook though you're right there were quotes similar.
Peter Pan / Peter Pan quote?

A friend posted this quote on my profile today...I don't remember this particular one but it's been attributed to Peter Pan wherever I look. I don't REMEMBER it being in the book or play but i could easily be wrong I havn't gone back to any of you know where this quote came from and if it's the book or play where it's found?

"Never say good-bye because saying good-bye means going away,. and going away means forgetting. "

I think providing it's not something insanely bad like a porn...I think Barrie would be flattered at peoples adaptations of his story...Peter Pan shouldn't be put in a box's a modern legend now....I think adding or even taking away SOME stuff is not a horrible idea....not having anything to do with trying to make it "better" than Barrie's....just another view of it. Even using it as a means of showing how we ourselves relate to it. I don't think there is any "one" message to the show or any piece of literature..everyone will take something different from it. :)

Yeah I figured stuff like the broomstick was obviously totally out of the question. And Andrew...definitely...we always felt if something was done and we didn't have to pay royalties we would still want to give money to GOSH.
Peter Pan / Re: The acorn
« on: September 30, 2010, 09:14:59 AM »
I wasn't familiar with the belief that an acorn would grant eternal youth, but I have found some references to this folklore which point to Norse or Celtic culture, rather than English - so it is possible that JM Barrie would have heard similar tales in Scotland. My feeling however is that he gave Peter acorn buttons as they would make sense with his costume made of leaves...

I found these two links: (although this one is about tombstone symbols - scroll down)

How's your Wendy dress coming on?

Thanks for those links...I definitely know I saw something....I really wish I could find it again...this quote on one of those pages sticks out to me and may have been one of the things I read "An old British superstition states that if a person carries an acorn in her or his pocket or purse it would prevent old age."

I know it was probably not intentional by Barrie but I always found in stories things like this end up actually having some merit whether authors intended or the spirit world knows and influences the stories ...if that makes any sense...or there is some collective unconscious thing going on there. I've seen stuff like that happen waaaay too much haha ;D

I havn't even had a chance to start on the wendy costume unfortunately. I was in the middle of immigration stuff and various other time consuming and semi stressful situations. I'm hoping to get started sometime in october or november. I still have my fabric! ;D
Peter Pan / Re: What is Neverland?
« on: September 30, 2010, 09:09:00 AM »
That's pretty much what I imagine Neverland is meant to be; a blank canvas that becomes covered in paint as a child dreams.
I also believe it is meant to represent the ideal reality from a child's point of view. Neverland, filled with exciting dangers and overflowing with adventure, is just what a child wishes the real world to be - little order and discipline, adventures (real or imaginary...whichever one chooses), few adults to spoil the fun, but just enough to invoke challenge.
However, in regards to -Peter Pan- as the novel and play, Barrie's personal Neverland seems to be more of an arena. It is a well known theory that Barrie is Peter, but it is also known that Barrie based Hook off of himself (see the Dedication to the Five essay). The way I read and understand the play is that Barrie's story is conveying an internal battle that was occurring within himself in real life. Peter represents eternal youth and joy, a trait Barrie most certainly admired and wished for. Barrie, the way I see it, split his personality in two - into Peter and Hook - and turned Neverland (his ideal reality) into an arena in which the more desired personality (the fun-loving, free youth that is Pan) could overcome the strict, harsh, unwanted character (Hook). Hook is a confused character, chasing always after his youth, running aways from his inevitable mortality and Barrie, in fleshing out his Neverland, created an arena in which he could throw out, as it were, these unwanted traits, and become youthful and free again.

Loving these thoughts! Very well put!

So if someone wanted to create their own version of the story for film or play etc based off the book they are allowed even in the US because it's in public domain?
Correct.  As long as they use only elements introduced in the novel Peter and Wendy (or LWB/PPiKG), and do not use anything introduced in the 1928 publication of the play (or other adaptations, which are under someone else's copyright), this is legal.

The only exceptions to this are in the few countries whose copyright terms are longer than the EU's: St Vincent and the Grenadines (all of JMB's copyrights expire in 2013), Spain and Colombia (2018), and Mexico (2038!).  So if you speak Spanish and want to produce an unauthorized Pedro Pan y Wendy, you might find the lawful market for it somewhat constrained for a while yet.

So this doesn't include the fact that stuff in the book is also in the just means only stuff from the book and nothing that may have come later in the publication of the play?
