    Smile New Peter Pan Prequel coming to Sci Fi Channel

    Just saw a short commercial on Sci Fi about a Boy before he became Peter and a man before he became a Pirate Capt and a Hook. It all takes place in Neverland, the name of the special. It opens in December 2011 but it didn't say if it was a one time movie, a special 3-part mini series like they have been doing with other Fantasy Tales, or a longer mini-series. Just thought I would give all the Peter Pan fans that something new about Peter Pan is coming. I did look on the Sci Fi Channel Web Site but nothing is showing up yet. Probably because it's in December and too far away yet.
    Peter Pan Forever!!! I Will Never Grow Up.

    Re: New Peter Pan Prequel coming to Sci Fi Channel

    I found this. They started in 2010.

    Syfy is re-teaming with writer/director Nick Willing to present Neverland, his original prequel to author J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan, it was announced today by Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. Production is set to begin on the 4-hour movie event next week in Genoa, Italy and Dublin, Ireland with a cast including Rhys Ifans (Pirate Radio, Notting Hill) as James Hook, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg's feature Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as Peter Pan. It is slated to air in 2011.

    Neverland will be produced by Dublin-based Parallel Films on behalf of MNG Films in association with Syfy and Sky Movies HD and will be distributed by RHI Entertainment.
    "Nick Willing is a master story-teller who has taken a literary Classic and cleverly updated it for a new generation," said Stern. "'Neverland' will captivate viewers with a gripping narrative, great characters, and unprecedented film-making techniques."


    "RHI's creative partnership with Syfy continues to produce exciting appointment television for audiences worldwide," said Robert Halmi Sr., RHI Entertainment. "Viewers are in for a rare treat - and one they won't soon forget!"


    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.


    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.


    Here is the only picture of Peter that I could find:

    So far the commercials that air on Sci Fi just saying coming in December 2011. I am sure as that gets closer they will start heavy advertising and give the exact dates.

    Re: New Peter Pan Prequel coming to Sci Fi Channel

    Umm, can we change the title of this thread to saying the "Syfy" channel, seeing as to how the channel has very little actual Scifi left anymore, it is mostly reality garbage, wrestling, and horrible B movies that nobody watches. They even just cancelled Eureka which is the most true to the science fiction genre of everything on the network
    Trips coming up:

    May 22-26th
    July 13th-18th
    November 19th-25th

    I forgot about their new logo. You are right it should be changed, but I cannot do that. It takes an administrator or moderator to change thread titles. I am also very disappointed in them canceling Eureka. I love all three of the Monday Night Shows but Eureka is my Favorite. I also heard that Outcasts on BBC America has also been canceled so we will never learn who is that ship coming in. Stupid people that run these networks don't have a clue.
