'Neverland' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Feb 13, 2012 at 06:00 AM PST by

The star-studded Syfy miniseries will fly to Blu-ray in March!

In an early announcement to retailers, Vivendi is about to release 'Neverland' on Blu-ray on March 13.

From visionary director Nick Willing ('Alice,' 'Tin Man') comes a never-before-told origin story based on J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic fairytale starring Rhys Ifans ('Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man'), Golden Globe® nominee Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies,” 'Limitless'), Academy Award® nominee Bob Hoskins ('Snow White And The Huntsman,' 'Mona Lisa') and featuring the voice of Academy Award® nominee Keira Knightley ('Pride & Prejudice,' 'Pirates Of The Caribbean').

An “appealing” fantasy adventure that is “as much Dickens, Tolkein and J.K. Rowling as it is J.M. Barrie” (USA Today), 'Neverland' follows a young pickpocket named Peter (Charlie Rowe; 'Never Let Me Go,' 'Pirate Radio') and his ragtag gang of “lost boys.” Presided over by Jimmy Hook (Ifans), the group is suddenly transported to a magical world called “Neverland” where time stands still. There they meet the gorgeous but deadly pirate, Elizabeth Bonny (Friel), who has ruled the seas of Neverland for nearly two centuries, Smee (Hoskins, reprising the role he made famous nearly 20 years ago in Hook), and a courageous Tree Spirit named Tinker Bell (voiced by Knightley).

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include a behind-the-scenes featurettes, storyboards, and director commentary.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
