Parents need to know that Wendy is a moody, modern-day retelling of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan story that focuses on a young Wendy Darling (Devin France). Here, Wendy lives in working-class Louisiana and gets to Neverland by running away from home and jumping on a train, where she and her twin brothers meet Peter. In Neverland, life is grand until tragedy strikes, leading to unexpected consequences. Expect occasional strong language ("damn," "hell," "ass," and a use of "s--t") and a few scenes of danger and violence, including one intense sequence in which a boy's hand is cut off, and sad moments when it seems like a key character has died. Spoiler alert! Later, a beloved creature does die after being hunted. Characters have experienced traumatic loss, and there's a volcano that rumbles and spews ash. Unlike other Peter Pan adaptations, this film is less plot-driven and is slower-paced and more contemplative in a way that might be tricky for younger viewers to follow. It's also very focused on the importance of motherhood, which could be difficult for kids who don't have moms or have complicated relationships with their mothers. But it does touch on the universal Peter Pan themes of the wonder, wildness, and carefree innocence of childhood and the value of learning to appreciate family and the beauty of growing up.
