Fox Searchlight Pictures has debuted the trailer for Wendy, which is scheduled to open in theaters on February 28, 2020.
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.
Directed by Benh Zeitlin from a script by Benh Zeitlin and Eliza Zeitlin, the film was produced by Becky Glupczynski, Dan Janvey, Paul Mezey, and Josh Penn.
Benh Zeitlin previously described Wendy as follows: “The new film is about a young girl who gets kidnapped onto a hidden ecosystem where a tribal war is raging over a form of pollen that breaks the relationship between aging and time. It follows a friendship-love story-adventure of her and a joyous, reckless, pleasure-mongering young boy as they swirl in and out of youth and as the ecosystem around them spirals toward destruction. We’re working on it all day every day, but as all psychotic adventures go, you know where your destination is but not how long it’s going to take to get there.”
