Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo filming in UK

Come Away is an origins story about Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland with David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie set to star. 

Come Away is an origins story about Peter Pan and Alice - of Alice in Wonderland - with David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie set to star.

Now in pre-production in the UK, Come Away will be the live-action directorial debut of animation veteran Brenda Chapman who, in 1998, became the first woman to direct an animated feature for a major studio when she helmed DreamWorks Animation’s The Prince of Egypt.

When Chapman went on to co-direct Brave for Disney/Pixar, she became the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Written by Marissa Kate Goodhill, Come Away is from UK-based Fred Films. The feature is being set up as a prequel to Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, and is set in a world where the two are brother and sister. Jolie and Oyelowo will play their parents.

Jolie has been busy in the UK recently on two major Disney projects – principal photography is underway on Maleficent 2 and cameras have been rolling since April on The One and Only Ivan, for which Jolie provides voice work and on which she is a producer.
