    I, myself am a big fan of Peter Pan with it being my all time favourite movie, but what really are the morals of the story?

    Haha very true, but I can't see that being the intended message for children from J.M Barrie!

    the disney peter pan film, watched at the age of 16 for the first time since age of 6= PROPER sinister.

    that peter pan was a cad. leading wendy on, messing around with tiger lily and the mermaids, pretending not to realise how tinkerbell felt about him. grow up, stop wearing tights and realise what you're doing to these poor young women, pan!

    I don't think he meant the story to have a moral. He was just making up stories for the little boys he played with in the park :p:

    I disagree with this. Having had a closer look at Barrie's background and his life in generaly I think it's safe to say he didn't create this prolific piece of children's literature by accident!

    I know, but I think there's more to it than just a story put together off the top of his head

    Bubblebee is basing opinion on "finding neverland" film- am I right?
    if so then be aware that they took so many liberties with chronology in that film.
    I'm pretty sure the book does have a strong in-built meaning- maybe not fair to label it as a "moral".

    Nope, basing it on nothing more than a love of peter pan and a biography on the chap. Never seen finding neverland, Johnny Depp makes me want to pull my teeth out.

    That Pedophiles are good? I mean...come on..look at that book again and tell me there's nothing suspicious

    But seriously, it's (to me) never let your youth escape. It's comparable to Dorian Gray I suppose (studying atm)

    Wasn't it supposed to be about dead children? That's why they don't grow old.

    Yeah, it is said to be about James' older brother, David who died in a skating accident as a child, therefore never growing up.

    He did grow up, it was called Hook. We all saw what happened there, Peter Pan became a lawyer.
