Journey back to where it all began in this captivating Syfy original miniseries event when NEVERLAND arrives on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital March 13, 2012 from RHI Entertainment and Vivendi Entertainment.
From visionary director Nick Willing (Alice, Tin Man) comes a never-before-told origin story based on J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic fairytale starring Rhys Ifans (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, The Amazing Spider-Man), Golden Globe® nominee Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies,” Limitless), Academy Award® nominee Bob Hoskins (Snow White And The Huntsman, Mona Lisa) and featuring the voice of Academy Award® nominee Keira Knightley (Pride & Prejudice, Pirates Of The Caribbean).
An “appealing” fantasy adventure that is “as much Dickens, Tolkein and J.K. Rowling as it is J.M. Barrie” (USA Today), NEVERLAND follows a young pickpocket named Peter (Charlie Rowe; Never Let Me Go, Pirate Radio) and his ragtag gang of “lost boys.” Presided over by Jimmy Hook (Ifans), the group is suddenly transported to a magical world called “Neverland” where time stands still. There they meet the gorgeous but deadly pirate, Elizabeth Bonny (Friel), who has ruled the seas of Neverland for nearly two centuries, Smee (Hoskins, reprising the role he made famous nearly 20 years ago in Hook), and a courageous Tree Spirit named Tinker Bell (voiced by Knightley).
A sweeping, unforgettable epic filled with iconic characters, NEVERLAND also stars Charles Dance (“Game Of Thrones”), Q’orianka Kilcher (A New World) and Raoul Trujillo (Cowboys & Aliens). The NEVERLAND Blu-ray and DVD, loaded with bonus features including cast interviews, behind the scenes looks, storyboards and more, comes housed in collectible packaging with limited edition character postcards, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.97 and $19.97, respectively.
Neverland introduces us to a young lad named Peter and his streetwise gang, who are mysteriously transported from turn-of-the-century London into an enchanting parallel world where time stands still and an adventure awaits like nothing you’ve ever seen before. In Neverland, no one ever ages and lost souls have been plucked out of time. The lost boys are soon caught in a war with the man who will become Captain Hook and change the fate of this mystical land forever.
