A thoughtful deconstruction of Peter Pan, the film follows Wendy (Devin France) and her brothers as they follow Peter (Yashua Mack) to a place where they could stay young forever, but once there they learn some hard lessons about growing up. I caught the film at Sundance back in January and thought it was excellent, so I was excited to talk to Zeitlin about the project. We talked about the process of making the movie over seven years, …

Oscar nominated director Benh Zeitlin dropped by to discuss his original take on the Peter Pan story, Wendy.
Director Behn Zeitlin set a very high bar with his acclaimed debut feature Beasts of the Southern Wild. While his long-awaited follow-up, Wendy, bears some of the same elements—rambunctious kids, magical realism, unknown actors, climate awareness—it feels like an even stronger picture thanks to its filmmaker’s growing ambition. Peter Pan has been done to death with varying levels of success, but Zeitlin’s adaptation overflows with imagination as it manages to deconstruct the myth while never losing its timeless energy. Wendy retains the melancholy coming-of-age story of Peter Pan, but also reframes aspects …

Now that the host of The Wendy Williams Show is divorcing her estranged husband Kevin Hunter, she has some very strict requirements for her name man.
Once upon a time, a young talented filmmaker named Benh Zeitlin made a little indie movie called Beasts of the Southern Wild that lit the Sundance Film Festival on fire with buzz. The movie scored an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, and Zeitlin earned a Best Director nomination, even landing on Steven Spielberg’s shortlist for the Jurassic World directing gig. That was 2012. Then Zeitlin just… disappeared. He didn’t make another indie follow-up, he didn’t sign onto a Marvel movie, he didn’t even direct any television. It was fascinating and disappointing all at once, which …
