The Most Charming Childhood Film
26 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The 1988 Burbank Australian version of Peter Pan is definitely a joy to watch as it is a simple film which doesn't go into grave detail and only gives out the silly fun which is excellent. Most children's films today seem to complicate facts between non-fiction way too much. This film however, now being 24 years old is not a complex film with a famously known plot. I think this is possibly one of the best adaptations of Peter Pan for many reasons.

I believe that the voices to the character types are quite believable and they are a joy to listen to throughout the film. The music is very magical, mysterious, playful, bouncy and oddly fantasy like. I found this element to bring real qualities to the film, making it a strong element. I believe the casting for certain characters was excellent and many of the scenes were designed and presented well.

I think the most strongest parts of the film was the representation of Captian Hook. In the Disney film or early to late 90's films, he was seen to been wicked and despicable. In this, he is totally different which I love. His voice contrasts between deep and light, and he uses a different style when he screams or gasps or even laughs. I don't know who voiced him but the actor brang strong qualities to Captian Hook, I had never seen before. And thought that this was the best adaptation of Captian Hook. I mainly liked the scenes because of his humorously funny dialogue and moments.

Overall, The Australian Burbank film of Peter Pan is best. I believe anyone (any age) who hasn't seen it yet, should. Verdict - 8.5/10
