Peter Pan (J.M. Barrie) – Adapted: Books to Movies

Love books? Love movies? Hosts Marisa Serafini and Phil Svitek love them both too… equally. So they decided to marry their love of both into a monthly dedicated series where they discuss books that have been adapted into movies.

This month they chose JM Barrie’s Peter Pan which is about a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mythical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies, pirates, mermaids, Native Americans, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland.

Peter Pan has become a cultural icon symbolizing youthful innocence and escapism. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie’s works. These include a 1953 animated film, a 2003 dramatic/live-action film, a television series and many other works.
The character and the book have a lot of history and interpretations which Phil and Marisa dive into.
