Peter and Wendy on DVD

22:05

Peter Pan is one of my ultimate favourite Disney films, because it is a film of everything. It have the magic, and mermaids and pirates, adventures and fun. What isn't there to love. But it's not only the Disney animation that has taken my heart but actually I'm quite fond of the live-action films Peter Pan, Hook, the latest being PAN. 

Now there is a chance to add another to the collection this Easter,  Peter and Wendy. 
amazing cast
Including stars like Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, The Devil Wears Prada) as both Captain Hook and Mr Darling, Brit Award winning Paloma Faith (Youth) as Tinkerbell and Laura Fraser (Lip Service, Breaking Bad) as Julie and Mrs Darling.

What is the film about I hear you cry, 
The day before her heart operation, twelve-year-old Lucy Rose (Hazel Doupe; Ripper Street) reads J.M. Barrie’s novel of Peter Pan to a crowd of sick children in the hospital, and she goes to sleep with the thoughts of the classic tale in her head. Lucy dreams this version of Peter Pan into existence and the story is retold through the young girl’s imagination. The magical story cuts back and forth between Lucy’s modern day struggles and the fantasy land of Neverland, with the common theme being positivity and belief.
This exciting TV film mixes fantasy with reality in a narrative based around Great Ormond Street Hospital, to which J.M. Barrie bequeathed the proceeds of his book in his will.

I remember watching this for the first time on ITV at Christmas time, it is one of those films that have you sucked into the screen, full of emotion, excitement, oh so very clever. Showing how powerful a child's imagination can be! It truly is a beautiful film, I would totally recommend it... but bring the tissues. 


You can get yourself the DVD and Digital Download from 21st March!
