The pirates also wish for a mother, and Hook's motivation for going after Wendy is that if he can't have a mother, Peter can't have one either.At the end, the Lost Boys (plus Smee) are each returned to their own mothers, with Peter Pan's agreement.The soundtrack frequently returns to either a cheerful or tranquil flute motif, as we watch the kids in action or at rest.
It falls back on cartoon slapstick and sound effects.
But it still goes beyond the minimum necessary, such as a rippling effect when the mermaids are shown underwater, indicating that the animators were making a genuine effort within budgetary constraints.
The pirate captain's full name is inexplicably stated as "Jasper Hook", and the directions to Neverland are changed for some reason to "first on the left and straight on till morning".
Only four pirates are depicted: Hook, Smee, Cecco, and the Black Pirate (whose name neither Barrie nor the producers of this production reveals).
This animated fairy tale for kids tells the classic story of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up.
Determined never to become an adult, Peter stays forever young in a magical word called Neverland, where he leads a band of mischevious kids called the Lost Boys.Unfortunately, Neverland's chief other inhabitant is a pirate named Captain Hook, who would like nothing more than to put a permanent end to Peter's fun.Peter Pan is an Australian 50-minute direct-to-video animated film from Burbank Films Australia, part of a series of low-budget adaptations of classic literature. The rights to the film have changed hands and have been licensed to multiple distributors, so it has been released under at least three distinct covers, making it look as if there were several animated features out there, rather than just this one, the Disney film, and one other.It was originally released in 1988, taking advantage of the lapse of the original play's copyright in Australia, 50 years after J. The names attached to this production include Children's Video of America, Pulse Distribution and Entertainment, BEI Bogner Entertainment, Gaiam Americas, Genius Entertainment, Nu Tech Digital, and Payless Entertainment. The film was produced by Roz Phillips and featured music composed by John Stuart.The adaptation is geared toward younger children, with the protagonists made especially childlike and cuddly, and the pirates shown exclusively as comedic buffoons.
