A haunting tale of adventure discovery and dreams, Peter Pan has thrilled audiences around the world since it premiered on a London stage 100 years ago. The classic story of a boy who wouldn’t grow up – and the girl whose family insists she must – has never been fully realised on screen. Until now.
Universal Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Revolution studios are proud to present the first live-action, feature film version of Peter Pan since the silent era. And for the first time, a boy – Jeremy Sumpter (Frailty) – stars in the title role – opposite Jason Isaacs (The Patriot, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) as Capitan James Hook.
In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerises her brothers nightly with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling and the fearsome hook. But the children become part of an even greater story when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over the moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars to the lush jungles of Neverland.
Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life free of grown up rules, while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates.
With unbounded imagination and the latest in visual effects, writer-director P.J. Hogan (My Best Friend’s Wedding) and producers Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick (Gladiator, Stuart Little) bring all the wonder danger and excitement of this timeless tale to life.
