Disney to do full cg Peter Pan

Disney animation has optioned bestselling children's book Peter and the Starcatchers, by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Variety says the story will be developed as a 3-D CGI feature. In the loose prequel to "Peter Pan," modern 8-year-old Peter leads a group of orphaned boys on the ship Never Land. Peter and shipmate Molly lead an effort to recover a trunk of magical starstuff, before it can fall into the hands of the pirate Black Stache.

The book was published by Disney Editions in August.

That cow doesnt give milk anymore, yet they still suck on it day and night.

MAKE A NEW MOVIE. Even Chicken Little and Rapunzel Unbraided are rehashes.

Where's DFA's Incredibles, Nemo, Shrek, Robots, or Monster's Inc? Everything they do is completely unoriginal. It makes me sad, because all I want is for Disney to succeed, and they consistently shoot themselves in the foot.

It was clear that disney is run by fools when they demolished there 2D animation dept.
They have no idea that the story is equally if not more important than the visuals. I for one am glad to see them fail.

Won't this be like the 18th Peter Pan movie... at what point has a story been done enough?

The original Disney Peter Pan is wonderful and I can't imagine what these Numb-nutz disney execs are thinking.

more jobs

Ok so it's been done a million times and beaten like a rented mule, BUT it does create greater demand for CG artists and IT staff.

my 2 cents

Mmmm... just what our developing industry needs.

More jobs working on marginally bad ideas, re-hashing old stories that have been done a few times in the past 10 years.

I'd for one much prefer to see more jobs working on interesting new stories that may just make people say... "Hey honey, there's a new movie that everyone at work has been talking about. Do you want to go see it?"

Instead of... "Hey honey, there's another Peter Pan movie out, do you want to sit here and eat lead-paint chips or go see it?"

Unless I missed something it *is* based on an original Story. A bestselling children's book called, "Peter and the Starcatchers", by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.

Yell at Dave and Ridley if you want. Or, is it just funner to yell at Disney?

I, personally, don't understand some of you. Whether a story is original or not shouldn't be our concern as artists. We should be concerned about the market as a whole. To me, more movies mean more jobs...period.

I'd much rather have a good sequel or prequel than a bad original.
