Wendy Trailer: Peter Pan Reimagined by the Director of Beasts of the Southern Wild


After bursting onto the scene with 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild (which was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director), Benh Zeitlin kind of disappeared for the past few years, leaving many to speculate if he was just a one-hit wonder. We will find out early next year when he finally returns with his long-awaited follow-up, Wendy, a loose adaptation of Peter Pan seemingly told in the same real world fairytale style as Beasts. The movie focuses on a ragtag group of kids who get lost on “a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued.” Wendy stars Devin France, Tommie Lynn Milazzo and Shay Walker and it hits select theatres on Feb. 28th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
