Fantasy Film 'Come Away' to Premiere at Sundance Film Festival in January 2020

Come Away is a period fantasy film which serves as a prequel to the stories of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. In this prequel Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Peter from Peter Pan are siblings. Alice and Peter's parents Jack and Rose are being portrayed by Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo (both actors also have producer roles).

This is big news because that means in this take both Peter Pan and Alice will be mixed race characters.

Official Description

Before Alice found Wonderland, and Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their brother dies in an accident, they seek to save their parents from downward spirals until finally they're forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.

This truly is an interesting take on both tales, and I look forward to seeing how they turn out.
