David Lowery on Peter Pan & Wendy
David Lowery said to Collider, “As a Peter Pan film, it’s not going to surprise anyone who knows the original material. It’s very fun and it’s funny. If it’s grounded, it’s only because we were trying to shoot on location, build all of our sets, and have everything feel like a real place. I always value the idea that Neverland is a place that a child could actually get to. As to whether it’s a dark and gritty version of Peter Pan… it’s not.”
