First Look at Peter Pan Prequel 'Neverland'

January 7, 2011 (6:28 am) GMT
A two-part miniseries starring Bob Hoskins and Rhys Ifans among others, 'Neverland' is the origin story of the boy who never aged.

The story before Peter Pan meets the three siblings will be told in a 90-minute movie divided into two parts. "" is a take to J.M. Barrie's famous fairytale which would focus on The Lost Boys, Captain Hook, The Indians, Croc and the Neverland itself. It will begin with the story of Peter as an orphan, making a living as a pickpocketer.

Raised on the streets of turn-of-the-century London, orphaned Peter and his pals survive by their fearless wits as cunning young pickpockets. Now, they've been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook to snatch a priceless treasure whose magical powers transports them to another world.

It's here that the boys find themselves confronted by a band of 18th century pirates led by the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny, and the Native American Kaw tribe led by a Holy Man, which has protected the secret of the tree spirits from Bonny and her gang for ages. As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world becomes vital, Hook, Peter, and the ragamuffin lost boys consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up.

Charlie Rowe takes the main role of Peter Pan, assisted by as Jimmy Hook, ad Mr. Smee, as Elizabeth Bonny and Danny Trujillo as the Holy Man. Written and directed by Nick Willing, it will be released on Sky Movies in the U.K. and on Syfy in the U.S., both later this year.
