In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerizes her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling, and the fearsome Captain Hook. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and 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.Written by

When the pirates realize the "crocodile" is up in the rigging, Hook is holding Michael and then throws him down to the ground. When Hook re-emerges after getting weapons, it is John that's on the ground (whom he kicks), not Michael (who is still sitting with the lost boys). See more »
A terrific and fun retelling of the classic tale...
This latest edition of Peter Pan is a true delight. Jeremy Sumpter is the quintessential Peter Pan. His facial features, his body language, his vocal inflections, all were spot-on in my humble opinion. Oh, and my daughters think he's cute! But it is his bravado, tempered with his boyish charm, that gives the role a new "feel" that was always lacking in past renditions of the tale of Peter Pan. He looks as though he is having a great time playing the part, and his delight at being the boy who never has to grow up leaps off the screen and envelopes the audience. Jason Isaacs is also very good as Captain Hook, menacing but slightly charming in a strange sort of way. Rachel Hurd-Wood is fine too, as Wendy. She has a sweetness about her that plays well off of Jeremy/Peter. All in all, this is a fun and beautiful version of Peter Pan, one that I will definitely add to my family's DVD collection as soon as it comes out. In the meantime, I just might have to take my daughters back to see it again at the theater. Yes, it's that good!
