More Peter Pan and Wendy Clips
« on: April 23, 2023, 11:40:06 PM »
Here are more clips from Peter Pan and Wendy that were released outside the Walt Disney Studios YouTube channel. I decided to clump these clips together on one topic for convenience and also I have quite a bit to say about them.

What’s a Wendy- https://youtu.be/oSwd1alAqGU

Nothing Changes-https://youtu.be/bIDh-un8jwY

Tiger Lily Rides In- https://youtu.be/yHpBtYbuKq8

Yeah, so with every clip I’ve watched that has come out so far from this movie, the excitement that I had after watching the trailers lessens significantly!
I’ve already talked about how not excited I am for Captain Hook’s portrayal in this movie, but now I have to talk about Wendy…..
So far Wendy in these clips is very annoying! I don’t blame the actress at all for this, I blame the writing and directing, both done by David Lowery. Although Disney executives might have had a big part in that as well.
She seems to doing a lot of complaining in this movie about about what happens in Neverland and what the characters do, including Peter, which is weird because in the trailers and in the plot description it’s clear that Wendy wanted to go with Peter to Neverland so that she wouldn’t have to go to boarding school and have to grow up, so why is she complaining?
Also I don’t know why they have her say, “I’m from London, England, where gentleman do not harm children!” when in the early 1900s or 1910s (I don’t know exactly when this movie takes place), boys were canned in boarding schools, which Wendy should probably know about.
Peter’s facial expressions in the first two clips are the same blank expression no matter what he says. Again, I don’t blame the actor, I solely blame David Lowery for that since the director is of course supposed to tell the actor how to act in a scene.
I’m glad Peter says “To die would be an awfully big adventure!” in this movie, except it’s kind of ruined because of the delivery, the wooden facial expression, and the fact that Hook says part of the line with him. Why? And why did Peter brace himself so much when Hook was about to kill him? Barrie’s Peter wouldn’t do that, he would stand there gentleman-like as Hook killed him, maybe even smiled a bit. Like the F.D. Bedford illustration from the first edition of the novel with Peter on Marooner’s Rock. And why isn’t Tinker Bell doing anything to stop Hook from killing Peter even though she’s flying right next to him? Unless Peter told her not to do anything, which I doubt he did!
I don’t like how Wendy and Tiger Lily treat Peter. They don’t believe he can defeat Hook by himself for some reason, even though they should have complete faith in him! He’s the leader of Neverland! He’s a wonderful boy! He’s possibly an all-powerful entity (though no one knows who or what he is) that can never die (unless maybe he wanted to die)! Why are they treating him like some little kid who has no idea what he’s doing?
I have a lot less confidence in this movie than I had a little over a week ago….
