Syfy is launching a new two-night miniseries called Neverland tonight, December 4, at 9PM (ET) — a tale that sounds perfectly suited for the entire family.
Here’s how they describe the miniseries:
“Neverland” is a two-night miniseries premiering on Syfy on Sunday, December 4 and Monday, December 5, 2011 at 9 pm ET/PT.
Sweeping in time from the turbulent seas of the pirates of the Caribbean to the back alleys of Dickensian London to a world of pure imagination, “Neverland” is the inspired origin story of one of the most cherished characters of all time… Peter Pan.
“Neverland” stars Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel, Charlie Rowe, Bob Hoskins, Charles Dance, Raoul Trujillo, Q’Orianka Kilcher, Cas Anvar and features the voice of Keira Knightley.
Peter (Rowe), along with his pals of young pickpockets, have been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a magical orb which transports them to another world – Neverland. Filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees created by Dr. Fludd (Dance) and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits led by Tinker Bell (Knightley), this mysterious realm welcomes unknown friends and enemies snatched from time. These include power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel) and her band of 18th century pirates who search for the answer to eternal youth, a secret guarded by a Holy Man (Trujillo). As the fight to save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up—right here in their new home called Neverland.
“Neverland” is produced by Dublin-based Parallel Films on behalf of MNG Films in association with Syfy and Sky Movies HD and distributed by RHI Entertainment.
Syfy has also released 27 images from the 2-night event. Enjoy:
