So, that io9 article about the movie Pan has my head hurting.

It’s an origin story, where Pan is apparently a WW2 orphan.

WHAT. THE. HELL.

JM Barrie’s play Peter Pan, or the Boy who Wouldn’t Grow Up premiered in 1904*.

You can’t have an origin story linked to WW2 when the source material predates even WW1. That is so logically incongruent it hurts my head.

*I had to look this up, because I knew it predated WW2, but wasn’t sure when it premiered
