Enola Holmes’ Louis Partridge (Tewkesbury) will be playing the role of Peter Pan in an upcoming independent film called The Lost Girls (2021).
The Lost Girls is a new and darker take on Peter Pan and focuses on the Darling women of all four generations. It follows Wendy (Jane’s daughter) as she attempts to protect her relationship with her daughter, Berry, as she “comes into Pan’s orbit”.
In this Peter Pan adaptation, the Darling women's image of men have been tarnished by Peter Pan, and they're "desperate to escape the hold he has on them".
What was The Lost Girls (2021) adapted from?
It was adapted from the novel The Lost Girls by Laurie Fox. In this new take, Peter Pan is painted in a more darker side, similar to how he was portrayed in ABC’s Once Upon A Time series.
What exactly can fans expect from The Lost Girls (2021)?
According to Louis, The Lost Girls (2021) will focus mainly on the women and feminism:
I "I’m a part of an independent film [...] called “Lost Girls” and it’s sort of a new take on the Peter Pan story. [...] It’s more centred around the women and feminism. It’s got a lot of that going on for it as well.”
Other themes also include motherhood, love and freedom.
