“Now, think of the happiest things. It’s the same as having wings.”
Today’s date in history marks the monumental event of the release of the film Peter Pan. In Edwardian London in the neighborhood of Bloomsbury, George and Mary Darling’s three children are visited in the nursery by a magical boy named Peter Pan. Peter teaches them to fly with the help of his pixie friend, Tinker Bell, and takes them with him to the island of Never Land.
At the end of the film, we look out of the Darling’s window, along with the children’s parents, and see what appears to be a pirate ship in the clouds. Mr. Darling, recognizes it from his own childhood, as it breaks up into clouds itself.
