Joe Wright is a master of bringing a cohesive, deft magic to updated versions of old stories (Pride and Prejudice anyone), so I’m excited for this. Stars Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara, Garrett Headland and Levi Miller.

Yesterday I got the chance to interview some of the lovely people behind The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy!
The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy is a webseries created by Kyle Walters (most recently known for his role in Welcome to Sanditon) and Shawn DeLoache. Loosely based on J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, it’s set in a fictional Neverland, Ohio in which Peter is a comics writer, Wendy an advice columnist, and Wendy’s brothers John and Michael a neurotic editor and ne’er-do-well slacker, respectively. New episodes air twice weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays on Epic Robot TV. The charming series has been well-received and SoS had a chance to speak with writer and creator Shawn DeLoache and lead actress Paula Rhodes (who plays Wendy).
If you are a cynical human being, head for the door, because the adorbs is strong with this one.
Still around? Good.
Because the producer of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has a new show out, and it is completely worth your time. It’s very loosely based on Peter Pan, though really that’s just an excuse to have some off-the-wall characters who live in a small town called Neverland in Ohio. It’s less romantic than LBD (though really, everything is less romantic than the Darcy/Lizzie romance), but it’s funnier and faster-paced; some of the one-liners and terms coined are GEMS (“hipster spinster”). Watch it. Fall in love.
