The first trailer for Wendy has arrived, taking the classic tale of Peter Pan and turning it into something entirely new.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this first trailer for Wendy, and having watched it a couple times, I’m STILL not sure what to think. Take a look:
One of the things I like about this trailer is that it’s obviously not just another Peter Pan movie. Instead it looks like a touching, coming of age, story that will undoubtedly hit hard at the emotions. Combined with the obvious fantastical elements and I’m still not sure how to feel about it overall, but I know I’ll be thinking about this one for some time.
The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic from Benh Zeitlin, director of BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.
Wendy hits theaters on February 28, 2020.
