I just found out Disney is making a movie based on the book “Peter and the Starcatchers.” I read it a couple years gao on vacation (at WDW of course, where I purchased it). It’s a great read - easy and light. Written by one of my favorite columnists, Dave Barry (with Barry Ridley). It tells the story of how Peter became Peter Pan. Kind of a Harry Potterish kind of a book - for kids but great escapism for adults. After I read it, I mentioned in a post on good old Disney Central (aka Mousebuzz) that the book would be a good Disney flick. I read the sequel “Peter and the Shadow Thieves” as well and it’s just as good.
The only problem for me is that it will be a 3D Pixar-type picture instead of live-action. I think it would be so much better as live-action, but then, the folks at Disney DO know a thing or three about making movies.
