Grab your shadows and thimbles, we’re taking a trip to Neverland!
Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust
Peter Pan’s shadow first crept onto screens in 1924 – before those fancy talking pictures were a thing.
The first Peter Pan (1924, Herbert Brenon) was pretty basic by today’s standards (looking at you, Nana), but wow, see them flying?
And there’s a tiny lil’ Tinkerbell!
Next stop, the super-famous Disney Peter Pan (1953, Clyde Geronimi et al.)!
Do you recognise the voice of Wendy?
Kathryn Beaumont also played Alice in Wonderland (1951, Clyde Geronimi et al.).
Which brings me to the next great feature of the Disney classic – the amazing songs. I don’t know about you, but my favourite has got to be You Can Fly.
Hope you’re in the mood to sing along!
To Live Would Be an Awfully Big Adventure
Our next live-action gets bonus villain points for casting Lucius Malfoy, Jason Isaacs, as Captain Hook.
Peter Pan (2003, P. J. Hogan) also picked up lots of great moments that didn’t make the Disney cut, like the thimble scene.
This movie brings up some of the melancholy themes from the book too
This movie brings up some of the melancholy themes from the book too.
What does that mean for you?
It’ll break your heart a little, but it’s ultimately cosy and inspiring.
If movies aren’t your thing (gosh, really?), how about ‘90s series Peter Pan and the Pirates (1990, John Wilson)?
Another high-profile Hook, folks – this time it’s Tim Curry’s turn.
But if you’re looking for grubby Edwardian London instead, give live action miniseries Neverland (2011, Nick Willing) a try.
One of the Kind that Likes to Grow Up
So there we have it – a whole lot of Peter Pan media adaptations to choose from!
And if you’ve exhausted ‘em all, there are some great almost-adaptations out there too.
They let the story grow a little, so you can get your Neverland fix with a twist.
Hook (1991, Steven Spielberg) just ain’t my thing.
It seems like they could have made a fun movie without veering from Businessman Pan to food fights.
But a lot of people love this movie, so maybe I’m just weird.
Robin Williams fans will love it, so if Mrs Doubtfire’s (1993, Chris Columbus) your go-to, give this one a try.
Straight on ‘Til Morning
We’ve reached the end of our Peter Pan journey!
Did you wave to the mermaids?
These adaptations all tell the story in a different way, but I hope you’ll love them.
Are they hopeless imposters against the might of that old VHS favourite, or have they shown you a whole new side of Neverland?
