The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in a ragtag epic. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.Written by
Fox Searchlight Pictures
This only gets a 5 as I'm having to give a rating.
I won't get behind anything that's purposefully revisionist. The fact that Peter is suddenly a "person of color" is not the issue, it's that his original character wasn't, so he shouldn't be now, as it's not accurate to the original story.
Same thing happened with Ghost Busters (suddenly all women).
They TRIED to make the next James Bond, Janice Bond, but Sean Connery reached out from beyond the grave and choked that idea to death with his chest hair.
Are we going to see the next Wonder Woman played by Sean Penn?
How about a new biopic on Rosa Parks, played by Jim Carrey?
Seriously.. enough of this nonsense. And especially don't mess with the classics!
