Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.
In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerizes her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling, and the fearsome Captain Hook. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush jungles of Neverland. Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life--free of grown-up rules--while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates.Written by

When the crocodile appears at the Black Castle, a close-up of the boat shows Wendy leaning over the side closest to the crocodile, but on the next shot from Hook and Peter's view, she's sitting on the opposite side closest to the rock. See more »
German theatrical version was edited (ie. Hook killing various pirates, sight of skeletons, much of Hooks more menacing dialogue, the final fight, the crocodile swallowing Hook) to secure a more commercial "Not under 6" rating. The DVD (rated "Not under 12") includes all these scenes but misses the head-butt due to the use of the cut UK PAL-master (see above). See more »
WOW! that's all I can say to such a movie. The graphics were amazing and the cast were played by some excellent people. I particularly thought Jeremy Sumpter was an excellent actor. He managed to uphold the mischievous side of things at one part and be deadly serious during another. The fairy was extremely funny and the lost boys really where what you would expect in this kind of story. I think this would be a movie for family and and kids even teens but I think adults will be too familiar with the story to want to watch it, so make them!This really is a must see with a great script. If you haven't seen it yet seriously go and see it!!!!!!!!!!!!
