TV / Family
status: On Release
Peter and Wendy is a spellbinding new re-imagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale Peter Pan, told through the imagination of a 12-year-old girl.
The drama opens in modern day Great Ormond Street Hospital where twelve-year-old Lucy Rose is awaiting treatment for a serious heart condition. Before the operation Lucy reads J.M. Barrie’s novel of Peter Pan to a crowd of sick children in the hospital, and she goes to sleep with thoughts of the classic tale in her head. Lucy dreams this version of Peter Pan into existence and the story is retold through the young girl’s imagination. As the adventure begins, the story cuts back and forth between Lucy fighting for her life in the present day and the magical land of The Neverland, featuring Peter Pan and his Lost Boys and the dastardly Captain Hook.
A spectacular, magical reimagining of a timeless classic.
Peter & Wendy based on the novel Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, a Headline Pictures Production with Juliette Films in association with Catalyst Global Media and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, for ITV Studios
