Keira Knightley To Voice Tinker Bell In Syfy’s Prequel Neverland

Pirates of the Caribbean star Keira Knightley will provide the voice of Tinker Bell in Neverland, Syfy’s original prequel to the J.M. Barrie classic Peter Pan. It marks the actress’ first American television role.

Announced in September, the four-hour movie follows an orphaned Peter (The Golden Compass‘ Charlie Rowe) who, along with his pickpocket young friends, have been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook (The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Rhys Ifans) to steal a magical orb that transports them to another world — Neverland, a mysterious realm filled with white jungles and imposing cities formed out of trees created by Dr. Fludd (Charles Dance) and inhabited by a colony of tree spirits led by Tinker Bell.

The cast also includes Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Bob Hoskins as Smee (the role he played in Hook) and Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man, True Blood) as the Kaw tribe holy man.

Written and directed by Nick Willing (Alice), Neverland will air in December on Syfy.

    I’m more excited for Neverland than I have been for anything
    else SyFy has done lately. The casting looks excellent and a few of the stills
    I’ve seen look fantastic. I’m also pretty excited that unlike most of the shows
    I’ve actually wanted to see, I’ll get to see this as it airs. I travel almost
    constantly so I’m usually out of town when my shows come on, but being a DISH
    Network employee / subscriber I heard about DISH’s TV everywhere technology and
    picked it up. With this I can stream any and all of my programming anywhere I
    go to a variety of mobile devices (I generally use my iPad or my laptop). It’s
    so convenient to be able to take my entertainment with me like that, so I can
    watch my programming in the hotel rooms instead of being at the mercy of
    whatever that particular room has available. It’s definitely worth checking
    out.
