“Pan” hit the theaters on October 9, 2015 with a bang. A movie that brings you back to your childhood of Disney movies. It had funny moments, really sweet moments, and even some emotional ones.
The movie “Pan” is about 12 year old Peter Pan (Levi Miller) going through the journey of figuring out where he comes from and who is his mother is. He battles Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), the leader of the pirates in Neverland, with the help of Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) the Indian Princess, and James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), the guy we know as Captain Hook. Hook and Peter were friends and allies at one point in time.
The plot was actually great. It wasn’t all over the place with random storylines here and there that were trying to make senoo; everything connected to the original animated “Peter Pan” released back in 1953. They really did an amazing job with this prequel.
The movie answers so many questions you may have had about how Peter can talk to fairies, who his lost boys are, or the main one: how he became Peter Pan. The only question they left you hanging on was why Captain Hook and Peter became enemies. The way they end the movie makes it seem like they might make a second one to this prequel. Curious how they will complete that though.
I really liked the actors the director picked; they really brought the character they played to life. I was cautious about how this movie would turn out. They could have easily ruined it and made it lame, but I am shocked at how well it turned out.
It’s running time is an hour and 51 minutes but you are so into what’s happening it just flies by.
Totally and completely recommend this movie. It’s the cutest thing with laughter and some action, and loads of pixie dust.
