We’ve seen the story of Peter Pan from multiple perspectives, in animated, and live-action form. Now Benh ZeitlinĀ the mind behind Beasts of the Southern Wild is here with a modern take on the story from the perspective of Wendy, and it looks pretty fantastic. Without giving too much away before you watch the trailer, it feels like Peter Pan for a new generation with just a tiny dash of Lord of the Flies thrown in for good measure.

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 young from the deadly peril of growing up.
