Nick Offerman has been offered the role of Smee:

Wouldn't mind him at all. Think he would be great!

Second choice is a much better fit in my opinion.

(Although how could anyone replace Bob Hoskins?? :))

Richard Briers came close, as the only bright professional moment of the '03 version, but OH, what an unholy mess they put him in... -_-

Might've been mentioned elsewhere, but Disney+ has blocked Peter Pan, other movies from being viewed from children's accounts:

https://www.cbr.com/disney-plus-block-d ... ereotypes/

I'd say this was stupid, but that's actually not nearly as stupid as Disney blocking all PG-rated movies, which pretty much keeps kids away from the entire Disney animated library for the past decade (but hey, at least they can watch Winnie the Pooh). Would make much more sense for, you know, parents to be able to choose which movies their kids' accounts can access on their own.

I figured that might be (I rarely go to the Disney+ thread because I'm probably the only person on earth who doesn't have it yet).

Even before I had the service I would keep an eye on the discussions. It's fun to see what's coming out and what discussion it brings.

Yeah, it’s spoiler free, only talking about what’s on there, or not. The spoilers are in the specific program threads. :)

So much for that:

First look at the Jolly Roger:

Really captures the spirit of the animated version.

Yes, the trees and metal containers add that perfect high seas period touch. ;) ;) ;)
