Fox Searchlight has released an official trailer for Wendy, which is described as a wild re-imagining of the Peter Pan tale.
The movie comes from Benh Zeitlin, who previously directed 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. In fact, that was his last film. Which is a bit strange considering it was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and two for Zeitlin for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. But whatever the reason, he’s finally back with this project.

The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic from Benh Zeitlin, director of BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.
Zeitlin co-wrote the screenplay with his sister Eliza Zeitlin, who also did production design work on the film.
Becky Glupczynski, Dan Janvey, Paul Mezey, and Josh Penn produced the movie.
Wendy is set to be released in theaters on February 28, 2020.
