We like being both nerdy AND flirty… so we were thrilled when Megan Highwind reviewed “The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy” in Nerdy-But-Flirty.
“The series is a cute, fun, take on the classic story and does a good job of representing the original characters while bringing new life and modernity to them. The best thing about this series is how lighthearted it is.”
Check out her full review here in New Adventures of Peter and Wendy Review!
We are proud to be the first blogged recommendation from the “notoriously addicted to YouTube” Kelly, over at Three Basic Bees.
You can check out the full review here at her article: You Should Watch: The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy
And here are a few fun snippets:
“I fell in love with this particular adaption because the show gets to explore very prominent issues in our world while incorporating familiar, lovable characters.”
” If you look at the comment sections in The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, it is easy to see that people are connecting with these characters on a much deeper level. Peter Pan and the Darlings are not fantasy figures anymore; they are people in their twenties struggling with life plans, rejection, love and aging.”
Anything is possible with a big dream (and a little bit of pixie dust). Kelsey Allen does a wonderful job of showing us Paula Rhodes’ wild ride to awesomeness, in her article for Mizzou Mag (the alumni magazine for Michigan University).

Some highlights include:
“If you are a cynical human being, head for the door, because the adorbs is strong with this one.”
“…the one-liners and terms coined are GEMS (“hipster spinster”). Watch it. Fall in love.”
Mandi Harris over at fandomania talks about how so many great web series nowadays are pulling their inspiration from some truly classic novels. She included “The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy” in her write-up in “YouTube’s Classics Explosion.”

Eli David has written a wonderful review of our show! Peter Pan is one of his favorite stories… “Ergo, any content using it as source material will be held to a near-impossible standard.” Spoiler alert: he loves everything about our adaptation.
I love everything about this adaptation. Its analogous characters, imagery, and story are perfect updates of their originals.
From the sets to the sound and camera cues to the theme, everything about The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy is as ideal as one could wish.
