“So began the legend of Peter, the boy who would not grow up”

A magical realist reimagining of Neverland set in the American South, Wendy is director Benh Zeitlin’s long-awaited follow-up to Beasts of the Southern Wild. Set on a mystical volcanic island where ageing and time have come unstuck, Zeitlin’s distinctly humanistic and naturalistic take on the beloved Peter Pan tale follows Wendy and Peter, two children from different worlds who fight to retain their freedom and joy as the imminent danger of growing up looms over them. Embracing eternal themes of childhood, Wendy is a bittersweet, gorgeous immersion into a world of wonder.

“Constantly enchanting and beguiling… overflows with imagination” — Collider
