A brand new movie that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival features twin brothers from Acadiana.

Gage and Gavin Naquin co-star in the movie "Wendy," which is based on Peter Pan.

They and another of their co-stars, Devin France, are in Acadiana this week to promote the movie.

Benh Zeitlin, the director of "Beasts of the Southern Wild," wrote and directed the film.

While the movie is similar to Peter Pan, it does have a few differences.

"Well, there's no flying like Peter Pan does," explained the co-stars. "There are no fairies. I wouldn't say there's less magic, but it's not as fairy tale."

Gage and Gavin will hold a meet and greet at the Grand Theatre on Johnston St. From 3 - 7 p.m. Friday.
