Like most girls I grew up with the "princess mentality" with Cinderella and Snow White. But unlike most girls I wasn't a big fan of frills but rather enjoyed Tarzan, Hansel and Gretel and the very whimsical Peter Pan and his bestie Tinkerbell.
I mean how awesome is it to have fairy dust and fly! Plus we get to be carefree and whisical kids forever! Now Syfy has a two-night movie event coming out in December and based on the trailer and their press release below, it sounds fantastic!
Neverland, a prequel to author J.M. Barrie's classic, Peter Pan, sweeps in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean and the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination. The cast includes Rhys Ifans (Pirate Radio, Notting Hill) as James Hook, Oscar nominee Keira Knightley as the voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg's feature, Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as one of literature's most cherished characters, Peter Pan.
Peter (Rowe), along with his pals of young pickpockets, have been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a magical orb which transports them to another world - Neverland. Filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees created by Dr. Fludd (Dance) and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits led by Tinker Bell (Knightley), this mysterious realm welcomes unknown friends and enemies snatched from time. These include power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel) and her band of 18th century pirates who search for the answer to eternal youth, a secret guarded by a Holy Man (Trujillo). As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up—right here in their new home called Neverland.
Directed by Nick Willing who have worked with Syfy in previous TV Movies such as Tin Man and Alice, reinterpretations of the classics Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland respectively. Neverland promises to be nothing short of spectacular from the cast to the special effects. For more information go to www.syfy.com/neverland
