In this imaginative origin story of two of the most beloved characters in English literature, Peter Pan and Alice, eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother, Peter (Jordan A. Nash), and their brilliant older sibling, David (Reece Yates), let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside.
Encouraged by their parents, Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kidsʼ make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi). Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the “Lost Boys.”
