Peter Pan & Wendy

Peter Pan & Wendy

PG, Fantasy, Adventure | Directed by David Lowery | Watch on Disney+

In a time when films seem to be squeezing as much ‘action’ as possible into their run-times, David Lowery’s Peter Pan & Wendy is refreshing in how the pacing feels like a family adventure movie from the 80s or 90s. There’s space for characterisation to be explored, rather than relegated to an afterthought. A particular highlight is the performance of Ever Anderson as Wendy, who holds the majority of the narrative perspective. Combining the slightly hammy over-exuberance of villains written for children with an unexpectedly poignant (and touching) message of forgiveness, this is a more-than-worthy retelling of the classic coming-of-age story.
