‘Come Away’ is a movie that narrates the stories of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland before they became Disney classics. Written by Marissa Kate Goodhill and directed by Brenda Chapman, ‘Come Away’ is meant to depict the two characters as siblings of African descent.
The plot as narrated: In this imaginative origin story of two of the most beloved characters in literature – Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland – eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother Peter (Jordan A. Nash), and their brilliant older sibling David (Reece Yates) let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside.
Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kids’ make-believe tea parties, sword fights, and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi).
Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the “Lost Boys.”
‘Come Away’ will be starring actors David Oyelowo, Angelina Jolie, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw and will be in Theatres and VOD on November 13.
Interesting twist right? We Cant, wait!
