Raise your hand if you were dying to hear the untold story of how Peter Pan got to Neverland?  Anyone?  So who exactly is this movie for!?  Well I guess we’re about to find out because after MONTHS of having to see that trailer, the movie is finally in theaters!  Will it be yet another prequel that fails to bring anything new to the table and is soon forgotten, or is it unlike pretty much every other prequel ever made?  Let’s find out!!

The movie is about young Peter (Levi Miller) who’s stuck in a British Orphanage during World War Two who as you’d expect is a precocious brat who doesn’t take well to authorities.  The orphanage is run by a corrupt nun who reminds me of the Trunchbull from Matilda (except she’s far less likeable) and it seems that she has a side business going where she sells the orphans to space pirates for profit and so that she can keep their rations all to herself.  I’m sorry, what?
