On the 16th October PAN, the new Warner Bros film, will be in the cinemas perfect timing for a Half Term treat. Warner Bros invited us along on Saturday to a screening before the World Premier on Sunday 20th. I was gutted I couldn’t make it, take a look at the trailer below and you’ll understand why.
However Paul and the girls did make it and when I spoke to them later they were all raving about it.
Pan is a new take on JM Barrie’s classical story which we all know and love. The adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds both fun and danger. He also finds his destiny, to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
From the trailer alone you can sense the drama and awe the film inspires in the audience. The costumes are fantastic as are the props and scenery, the whole feeling of being swept away on a dramatic adventure to Neverland to save the day comes over in every part of the film.
Dad’s Pan film review
Dad’s Pan film review. He loved the film but he mentioned it is a bit dark and quite scary in places. He said at one point Alice was leaning right on him for security, however she soon brightened up once the film got going and when asked later if she had been crying, she flatly denied and said she loved the film and would want to watch it again.
Alice’s Pan film review
Alice loved the film and has offered to accompany me to see it in October when it comes out at the cinema, she also wrote her own review for you
Today we watched Pa, it was a little scary. In the end the boy got to know that he was the Prince of the fairies. First he was at a working at a School for boys and there was world war. But the world war was only to try and stop a pirate ship from going to Neverland. When they got there they had to work for Blackbeard the naughtiest pirate on the land of Neverland. — Alice, age 7
Bessie’s Pan film review
Bessie was full of descriptions and remembered the story very well although she may have hopped all over the place in telling me. I’m not going to give away any spoilers but judging the family’s enthusiasm I would say this film is excellent and well worth making time to go and see it.
