You can check it out, along with the film's official synopsis, below.
A new take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale is an origin story that follows an orphan named Peter who is captured by pirates and brought to the magical world of Neverland, where he discovers he’s the son of a fairy prince and a slave girl and that he’s destined to save the island’s natives from Blackbeard (Jackman).
James Hook (Hedlund), a fellow orphan who was brought to Neverland as a boy and has been working as a slave there for years, dreaming of an escape. He initially plans to use Peter as his ticket back to Earth, but ultimately he grows to care for the boy and stays to fight alongside the natives against Blackbeard. Hook loses his right hand in battle but wins the heart of native princess Tiger Lily in the process.
Blackbeard, who steals orphans from all over the world and uses them as slaves to mine for pixie dust, which is Neverland’s most valuable resource. He plots to invade Earth and take over the world, but first he must defeat the natives and destroy the pixie race.0comments
Classic sidekick Smee will be depicted as a mining slave who is Hook’s longtime friend and confidante, though he ultimately betrays him and Peter by selling out the natives’ secrets and joining forces with Blackbeard.
Other characters include Turk, Blackbeard’s right-hand man; Nibs, an orphan who is Peter’s best friend; Father Pratchett, a mean orphanage director who sells children to pirates for profit; Chief, Tiger Lily’s father who dies defending the island’s secret; Kiowa, the greatest warrior in Neverland who has been promised Tiger Lily’s affection; and Mary, Peter’s mother who gave him up for adoption to protect him before turning to fight for Neverland, where her spirit lives on.
