All Children Grow Up Except One Imagine a world like nothing you've ever seen, where every day is an adventure, where you never have to grow up or grow old. That's the world of Peter Pan - the clanging swords of furious rivals, the quivering plank of the Jolly Roger, the transcendent thrill of flying ... and the magical power of a hidden kiss. A lasting tale of adventure, discovery and dreams, Peter Pan has thrilled audiences around the world since it premiered on a London stage 100 years ago. J. M. Barrie's classic story of the boy who wouldn't grow up - and the girl whose family insists that she must - has had many popular incarnations over the years, but has never been fully realized on-screen. Until now. Universal Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios have joined forces to present this bewitching story with an epic-sized production focused on capturing the essence of a great writer's work. With unbounded imagination, a hearty appetite for adventure and the modern magic of visual effects, writer-director P. J. Hogan (My Best Friend's Wedding) and producers Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick (Gladiator, Stuart Little) have brought all the wonder, danger and excitement of Barrie's original vision to the screen in the first live-action feature film version of Peter Pan since the silent era.
