Recently, we heard the news there is going to be a reboot of ‘Peter Pan’, one of the greatest characters of all time. Jude Law, who is famous for his roles in Captain Marvel and Sherlock Holmes, is in talks to take on the role of Captain Hook for Disney’s upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy. Many people were happy with the news realizing that the casting will be better. But most of the fans got furious and lashed out on this idea of rebooting J. M. Barrie’s classic story.
Many characters like Robin Hood and King Arthur are frequently rebooted by Hollywood which has completely ruined their originality. Fans do not want the same to happen to Peter Pan.
