The magical story of the boy who refuses to grow up comes to life in this faithful adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s classic, Peter Pan.
As the twelve year old Wendy nears her thirteenth birthday, she’s hesitant to accept the changes that are sure to come with adolescence. No more stories in the nursery, no more playing around with her brothers. Becoming a mature woman seems dreadfully boring.
So when Peter Pan invites her and her brothers to Neverland, where she can meet fairies and mermaids, and where she’ll never have to grow up or think about grown up things, it sounds like a dream come true.
But when Wendy begins to realize what staying in Neverland really means, her perspective begins to change.
Full of fantastic visuals and a lush musical score, this whimsical family-friendly film offers an action-packed swashbuckling adventure while exploring what it means to grow up, and how it’s not at all something to fear, especially in terms of love and family.
