Captain Hook in Peter Pan and Wendy
« on: April 22, 2023, 12:46:28 AM »
Disney released these two videos yesterday regarding Captain Hook in Peter Pan and Wendy. The first is a clip from the movie and second is a featurette of the cast and crew talking about Hook’s character in this movie.
I highly recommend that you watch these videos before you read what I’m about to say because I’m going to go on a little rant!

Regarding the first video, apparently I was wrong about Hook killing that pirate when he shot them through the door. That’s very disappointing! When I thought Hook had killed a pirate in the trailer, I was surprised and impressed that Disney allowed Hook to kill someone, but nope they actually didn’t! Give the animated movie this, at least Hook actually killed someone! He’s supposed to be someone that people, especially children, fear. That’s why Barrie has Hook kill someone almost immediately after we meet him in the book!
I shouldn’t be surprised that Disney probably won’t let Hook kill anyone, but I’m still very disappointed!
In fact, I think Hook seems more goofy in this movie than in the animated one! This Hook doesn’t seem to have any menace at all! I can’t imagine this Hook scaring many children who watch the movie!
Maybe I’m jumping the gun a little bit since the movie hasn’t come out yet, but I haven’t like the clips I’ve seen of Hook in general mostly from the second trailer and this featurette talking about him. Maybe Jude Law was just miscast? Anyway, I have a feeling I’m not going to like Hook in this movie!
And just like in the Darling nursery clip, I don’t like the music! It sounds too cartoony!
