I've actually only seen the original, animated Peter Pan once - and I was about six years old, so I can't say for sure if I liked it or not!
Anyways, it looks like a rather adventurous movie - and you know me and adventure (and if you don't, just look at the title of my blog)! ;) Plus, Levi Miller seems like a really great new actor from the trailer! Granted, he's only 11 or 12 years old, but that only makes it more impressive!
Levi Miller also had a small role in the ninth episode of one of my favorite shows - Terra Nova. That's not a big deal, but it was interesting to find out! :)
Here's the trailer for Pan:
All right, now for another announcement:
Cinderella is coming to theaters on March 13th! This is also a new, live-action take on the much-loved Disney classic. It seems to be a new 'phase' that the movie-making world is going through: recreating animated Disney movies! Because they're also going to start production on a live-action Beauty and the Beast later this year! Oh, and, um... they're also doing a live-action Jungle Book!! And guess who's voicing Sher Khan!? Benedict Cumberbatch, that's who! This is just a mind-blowing myriad of announcements I'm throwing at ya here... ;)
Okay, okay...back to Cinderella.
I am looking forward to seeing this one (even more so than Pan), and there is a teeny, tidbit of news that makes it all the more great...
The new Frozen short, Frozen Fever, is premiering with Cinderella!!! So instead of just seeing Cinderella, you'll also be seeing Frozen Fever! How cool is that!?
So, to whet your appetite for both Cinderella and Frozen Fever, here is the Cinderella trailer, and the synopsis for Frozen Fever:
Frozen Fever synopsis:
On Anna's birthday, Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa's icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.
Starring: Idina Menzel (as Elsa), Josh Gad (as Olaf), Kristen Bell (as Anna), and Jonathan Groff who plays Kristoff (all of the original voices from Frozen).
Running time: 7 minutes
I have to say that it looks like they've done a really great job on it! And also with making it more real-to-life. In the animated film, Cinderella is pretty at ease with her life as a servant, but I think it would be much harder in reality - especially with such a cruel stepmother and stepsisters. And she certainly didn't grow up as a servant! Do you agree?
Really, though, it looks like it's going to be a good adaption! And it also seems as though they made some pretty good casting selections! Agreed?
And we are so going to the theaters for this... There's no missing it.
What about you? Are you looking forward to any of the movies just mentioned? What about Cinderella and Frozen Fever? What do you think of Prince Charming and Ella? What do you think of the new Peter Pan?
