The premiere of Syfy’s Neverland is inching ever closer! The mini-series premieres December 4th and 5th at 9/8c, and we’ve got a special clip for you below!
What I love about Neverland is the same thing I’m digging right now with Once Upon A Time. We’re learning what happened before the stories that we’ve grown up with. Why are the evil characters evil? How were these relationship formed? And in Peter Pan’s case – how did he originally end up in Neverland? Well, Syfy has a whole world ready for viewers where they can see everything through the eyes of Hook and Peter!
Here’s some additional information on the mini-series:
From writer/director Nick Willing, Neverland is an original prequel story to author J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan. Sweeping in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean to the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination, Neverland features an all-star cast including Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man) as Jimmy Hook, Oscar nominee Keira Knightley as the voice of Tinker Bell, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee, Charles Dance (Games of Thrones) as Dr. Fludd and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as one of literature’s most cherished characters, Peter Pan.
In 19th century London, Peter and his young pickpocket pals are rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook to snatch a magical orb, which inadvertently transports them all to another world – Neverland. Filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees, and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits, this mysterious realm welcomes unknown friends and enemies snatched from time. These include power-mad Elizabeth Bonny and her band of 18th century pirates who are in search of the secret to the tree spirits’ magical mineral dust, an enigma guarded by the Native American Kaw tribe. As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up—right here in their new home called Neverland.
