Dream Teller Studios

DreamTeller Studios has the opportunity to capitalize on the multibillion-dollar film and merchandising industry based on the proprietary work of Francis Taylor. Francis’ story takes place after the events of the original sequel Peter Pan in Scarlet where Peter finds himself stranded and flightless.  In re-imagining an original rendition of the Peter Pan story, which has recently come into the Public Domain, Francis creates a whole new set of characters. Francis Taylor’s, Peter Pan: The Land of Forever is an authentic story continuing the Peter Pan saga with the introduction of a completely new set of modern day characters.  His female characters featuring Maggy Mannering  (Wendy’s granddaughter) and her friends are just what parents are looking for a role model for their daughters. The male characters feature Peter and Jack learning the value of friendship…  Dream Teller Studios will capitalize on both Taylor ’s creative genius and the need to provide parents with positive role models for their children, boys and girls alike, re-invigorating the millions of existing Peter Pan fans while winning legions of new fans.

PETER PAN, LAND OF FOREVER, brings Peter, Maggie and their friends into the 21st century while providing an exciting adventure maintaining the spirit and essence of J.M Barrie original works.

We have enlisted a seasoned professional in script development and music scores. With your support, we are dedicated to adding A-list actors and actress and an experienced director.
