I love these reimaged SYFY stories based on classic children stories. Alice and the Tin Man were my favorite of these made for SYFY series. They were brilliantly done and the premise gave modern more interesting take on those stories while not trashing the tale at all like some other reimagings have done. This time they are taking on the legend of Peter Pan and Neverland story. From some of the did bits I have red this is an origin story of Peter Pan of sorts unlike the others which were totally rewritten to give them a science fiction feel to them.
SYFY’s description of the mini series
A Story You Never Knew – Neverland : Syfy Mini-Series Event
Discover a story you never knew about a place you know by heart. The 2-night mini-series event Neverland premieres Sunday Dec. 4 at 9/8c.
Raised on the streets of turn-of-the century London, orphaned Peter (Rowe) and his pals survive by their fearless wits as cunning young pickpockets. Now, they’ve been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Ifans) to snatch a priceless–some believe, magical–treasure which transports them to another world. Neverland is a realm of white jungles and legendary mysteries of eternal youth, where unknown friends and enemies snatched from time welcome the new travelers with both excitement and trepidation. These groups include a band of 18th century pirates led by the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Friel), and the Native American Kaw tribe led by a Holy Man (Trujillo), which has protected the secret of the tree spirits from Bonny and her gang for ages – and that has meant war. But as the fight to save this strange and beautiful world becomes vital, Hook, Peter, and the ragamuffin lost boys consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up, right here in their new home called Neverland.
