Don't ask me how, i don't know but, i'm looking more foward for this movie that for star wars itself, and i see many people complaining about it, specially now that it got delayed, so i'm gonna say why we should keep optimistic for this movie:
If you see both of the trailers of the movie you'll see they spared no efforts to show how much magic neverland has! Is beautifull, visually stunning and also they have built neverland, almost no scenario effects, because basically everything was built.
Check the floating giant bubbles from the "kaneedah", the planets in the air in the middle of the night, the flying ship trough the clouds, the giant crystalised scenario that looks like super man's fortress of solitude! Aren't these things beautifull to see? another great point for this movie.
Despite Rooney mara, that is a white american playing a princess from a neverland tribe, she is an academy award nominee guys, she is a great actress, and how about that: A black Wendy, a black Bishop, and an arabic Smee? The fact is that Joe Wright decided to completely ignore the ethnicities, and focus only in the acting, that also has Hugh jackman, Amanda Seyfried, and Garrett Hedlund, also the newcommer Levi Miller That i'm gonna talk about him as one and not here in the "cast tag".
4-"IS AN OLD THEME"
You know what else is an old theme? Batman, how many Batmovies we've got already? And no one is complaining about the new reboot with Ben Affleck (only B.A himself but, remember how people "loved" the choice of Heath Ledger for joker? And the poor guy didn't even had the chance to hear the wonderfull compliments about his acting as joker, congratulations critics "on duty"). Another old theme, evil Alien invasion, but everytime a new alien invasion movie shows up, nobody complains.
5-"THEY ARE RUINNING A GOOD CLASSIC"
That's a typical Hater complaint, stop it, don't think about it as "Ruinning", Think about it as expanding the universe of a loved story, after all, there are many adaptations of many stories we all know and love, and i didn't hear anyone complaining about, for example: Once upon a time, snow white and the huntsman (yeah, was bad, but nobody complained about that when it firs came up), the red riding hood, among others, so stop complaining about that!
6-"BLACKBEARD HAS NO F#CKING BEARD"
No he doesn't but did you even watch the movie? What if that character is only called by the name "Blackbeard" to scare people making it look like Edward Teach is back with a different look, when is not the actual blackbeard? What if he is only for some reason wanting to look scarier than blackbeard was, and wanted to change the look, to a scarier one, but keep his name? There's a bunch of possibilities since the movie is set in WWII.
We always get concerned when a kid starts a major role in a movie like this, But i'm realy loving the few scenes i've seen with him, when he tells blackbeard he is never gonna bow to him in the second trailer, pause in the scene, look in his eyes, and a little bit under them, you see he actually managed to cry, and to show a fear and anger in the eyes perfectly. Also in the last scene of the 1st trailer, his eyes are also capturing the fear of the character perfectly, is amazing how he can show so much emotions just in the look, is whorth it to remember that Joe Wright is an exellent director, and that seen hundreds of kids all arround the world, so if Miller got to beat them, is not for no reason. So yes, i'm already loving him, and i think he could be the next DiCaprio and not next Jake Lloyd, which is kinda bad for him, after all, with that mini DiCaprio face Levi has, it seems he's fate to never win an oscar no matter how good he acts, just like L.DiCaprio.
8-GOOD LOOKING ACTION SCENES
Is a bit early to judge just by the trailers (remembering that are already people hating the movie and saying that is gonna suck. I know i loved Miller just by the trailers, but is different, cause if you love something too soon, you get dissapointed, but if you hate something too soon you get dissapointed, AND a "Turn down for what"), but the pirates invading the tribe, the fight in the edge of the ship between Tyger lily and blackbeard, the "insane" Peter Pan in the 1st trailer, by cutting the hook of the gondola (not hook's hand) shows that we'll probbably have quite good action scenes in the movie.
Don't know you guys but i loved this hook here, adventurous, humoristic, fun, and it is a good character, and don't hate him now because he is still gonna become the evil captain hook. "OOOOH I'm actually just a miner but, i appreciate the compliment". I loved that quote, so yes, i'm loving this character in the way is now, so, yeah.
10-TINKER BELL AND TIED UP PETER
Did u see at 1:42 of the 2nd trailer? It seems that tinker bell is there, and that he's tied up, after all he just looks at tink, doesn't move the arms to catch her or something, and also a little bit of the position his arms are, makes me even more sure that he's tied up, which makes in my opinion, much cooler, i love when heroes gets restrained, specially tied up, and not locked in a cage like, because tying up restrains the hero more, and leaves a whole lot cooler in the plot, showing that a bit of the hero kinda mistreated, so i'm liking it, i hope he's actually tied up in the movie, it makes a whole lot cooler (i guess in this scene, either tink will rescue him or call tiger lily or hook 4 that)
CONCLUSION: THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS WE SHOULD HOPE FOR THIS MOVIE, THE CAST, THE EFFECTS, THE NARNIA LOOK, THE ACTION, AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS, SO YEAH, I BELIEVE THIS IS GONNA BE AN AWESOME FILM, AND WE SHOULD NOT BE HATING IT (YES, I'M LOVING IT TOO SOON AND ASKING THE PEOPLE NOT TO HATE IT TOO SOON, BUT AS I SAID, IF YOU LOVE SOMETHING TOO SOON, YOU GET DISSAPOINTED, BUT IF YOU HATE SOMETHING TOO SOON YOU GET DISSAPOINTED AND... A "TURN DOWN FOR WHAT")
