Imagine not only taking on a classic children's tale and spinning it into magical prequel, but also working with a filmmaker who felt like Peter Pan himself. That was the case for the stars of Syfy's Neverland, Charlie Rowe, Rhys Ifans and Anna Friel, who were thrilled to be a part of writer-director Nick Willing's Peter Pan prequel.
Many fictional characters use their larger-than-life eccentricities to delight audiences. These eccentricities are not so delightful in real life, however. That's why these are called "syndromes" and "diseases" and not "awesome mutations." Inspired by Syfy's Neverland (which premieres Sunday, Dec. 4 at 9/8 and Monday, Dec 5 at 9/8c), we found nine disorders with names inspired by classic sci-fi and fantasy characters.
When it comes to his new Syfy miniseries, Neverland, English writer/director Nick Willing admits that although he loved the classic adventure tale Peter Pan as a child, he wanted to know more about the story.
It's miniseries time for Syfy as the channel heads into the Peter Pan of it all for a prequel called Neverland. The march of the midseason finales continues as Supernatural signs off with a big Bobby story, and Terra Nova gives us plenty of dino action when Taylor and Mira face-off in the jungle.
So far in the first two parts of our massive three part Fall TV Preview we've delved into the past (Canceled Shows) and taken a look at the present, or at least the near future (New and Returning Shows). However, there's more to come, folks.
The swashbuckling star of Pirates of the Caribbean, Academy Award-nominated actress Keira Knightley, will spread some pixie dust on Syfy as the voice of Tinker Bell in the upcoming Peter Pan sequel Neverland.
This was first announced back in March, but today Syfy said production is going to start next week on its 4-hour Peter Pan prequel called Neverland. It's being written and directed by Nick Willing, who worked on Syfy's Tin Man and Alice, which were reimaginings of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.
