Peter Pan And Wendy
- based on the novel by J.M. Barrie
- directed by Ernie Nolan
Wendy dreams of freedom and adventure outside of the nursery walls. When carefree Peter Pan flies into her life, she and her brothers jump at the chance to visit Neverland. Faced with boisterous Lost Boys and battles with Captain Hook, Wendy must ultimately decide whether or not to embrace the most exciting adventure yet: growing up. Rediscover J.M. Barrie's classic tale and a world that is "made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust."
