The movie ‘BIG’, the story of PETER PAN, and the novel ‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES’ share a common theme – boys who become trapped in situations where their emotional age is incompatible with their physical bodies. After being disenchanted or traumatized with their lives, their consciousness shifts to ‘new worlds’ that pose even greater challenges. A wish, a choice, or a promise triggers magical transformations that create situations of tension, conflict, and high stakes.
Paranormal energy is initiated when one boy makes a wish, another makes a choice, and yet another makes a promise.
The movie ‘Big’ featured Josh Baskin, a boy protagonist who becomes trapped in an adult body after making A WISH to grow up.
