List of Works Based On Peter Pan - Film


  • Peter Pan by Paramount Pictures (1924), an authorised silent movie adaptation. Starred Betty Bronson as Peter and Ernest Torrence as Hook. Barrie was involved in this production and wrote a screenplay for it, but Paramount instead used the original stage script, taking dialog from it for the intertitles.
  • Walt Disney's Peter Pan (released on February 5, 1953), an authorised animated adaptation. Disney licensed the film rights to the story in 1939 from Great Ormond St Hospital for Children. It featured music by Sammy Cahn, Frank Churchill, Sammy Fain, and Ted Sears. 15-year-old film actor Bobby Driscoll supplied the voice of Peter. This version contained little of the original dialogue from the play or its novelization.
  • Peter Pan (Питер Пэн) (1987), an unauthorised live-action musical adaptation by Belarusfilm for Soviet television.
  • Peter Pan (1988), an unauthorised Australian direct-to-video animated adaptation.
  • Hook by Steven Spielberg (1991), an authorised live-action sequel. A family action/adventure film starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins and Maggie Smith. The film has a grown-up "Peter Banning" who has forgotten his childhood, lured back to Neverland by Captain Hook, who has kidnapped Peter's two young children in an attempt to once again find meaning in his life. Despite mixed reviews by critics, the film was popular with audiences and grossed nearly $120 million in the U.S., making it the 4th highest grossing movie of 1991.
  • Return to Never Land from Disney (February 2002), an authorised animated sequel to the 1953 Disney film. Wendy's daughter Jane becomes involved with Peter Pan. The movie takes place during World War II, set amidst the Blitz (1940), and deals with the issue of children being forced to grow up too fast.
  • Peter Pan directed by P. J. Hogan (2003), an authorised live-action movie adaptation. This version is notable for its directness in addressing the romantic elements between Peter (Jeremy Sumpter) and Wendy. Wendy was played by Rachel Hurd-Wood and Hook by Jason Isaacs, who also plays the role of Mr Darling. The $100 million film boasted state-of-the-art special effects by ILM and took nearly a year to produce in Australia, but was not a financial success for Universal Studios.
  • Neverland by writer/director Damion Dietz (2003), an unauthorised film reinterpretation. Set in early 21st century Los Angeles and heavily "updated" for this setting, Dietz's independently produced film – featuring Wil Wheaton as John Darling – maintains much of the characterization, plot and themes of Barrie's original story.
  • Finding Neverland, a 2004 biographical film starring Johnny Depp as Barrie and Kate Winslet as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies is a fictionalized account of their relationship and how it led to the creation of Peter Pan. It was based on the 1998 play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee.
  • A series of digitally animated direct-to-DVD films starring Tinker Bell was begun by Disney in 2008. These works are part of the company's Disney Fairies franchise, and feature a cast of fairy characters and settings original to Disney.
    • Tinker Bell (2008)
    • Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure (2009)

Famous quotes containing the word film:

    A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    Is America a land of God where saints abide for ever? Where golden fields spread fair and broad, where flows the crystal river? Certainly not flush with saints, and a good thing, too, for the saints sent buzzing into man’s ken now are but poor- mouthed ecclesiastical film stars and cliché-shouting publicity agents.
    Their little knowledge bringing them nearer to their ignorance,
    Ignorance bringing them nearer to death,
    But nearness to death no nearer to God.
    Sean O’Casey (1884–1964)

    If you want to tell the untold stories, if you want to give voice to the voiceless, you’ve got to find a language. Which goes for film as well as prose, for documentary as well as autobiography. Use the wrong language, and you’re dumb and blind.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1948)
