Disney's Live Action Peter Pan and Wendy: Release date, trailer and latest news
Disney's latest live action offering now has an official trailer.
Disney’s upcoming live action movie Peter Pan is nearly here - and now we have a trailer to prove it.
The latest adaptation of JM Barrie’s novel of the same name stars Alexander Molony as Peter and Ever Anderson as Wendy.
The new trailer gives fans a glimpse at the magical world of Neverland and the full cast, which also includes Yara Shahidi as the iconic Tinker Bell.
Of course, the upcoming movie isn’t the first Peter Pan adaptation. Over the years there have been plenty of remakes, including the 1953 Disney cartoon version, Robin Williams's Hook (1991) and Johnny Depp's Finding Neverland (2004).
But now, Pete's Dragon director David Lowery has teamed up with screenwriter Toby Halbrooks for yet another take.
Peter Pan and Wendy release date: When is it out?
Peter Pan and Wendy will begin streaming on Friday 28th April exclusively on Disney Plus.
Production began back in March 2021 in Labrador and New Foundland and wrapped up in June.
Who stars in the Peter Pan and Wendy?
The main cast of Peter Pan and Wendy have all been announced, with Alexander Molony starring as Peter Pan, Ever Anderson as Wendy, Jude Law as Captain Hook and Jim Gaffigan as Mr Smee. Grown-ish's Yara Shahidi will play Tinkerbell, making her the first person of colour to play the mischievous fairy.
Shahidi has admitted she's spoken to Little Mermaid's Halle Bailey, who stars as Ariel in the upcoming remake.
Speaking to ET, Shahidi said she was in "admiration" of her.
"We've talked about how crazy the motion capture process is of playing characters where it's your real-life expression but so much of it is digitized and it's such a crazy experience," she said. "But other than the logistics of it – she isn't the weakest link and she's not going to let any of us know what is happening in The Little Mermaid. I just love whenever we get to hear updates and, like, she is killing it."
Speaking of Peter Pan and Wendy, the Tink actress said: “We’ve started already so it’s been really fun bringing that to life and pretending to be five inches tall.”
Peter Pan and Wendy plot
In the upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy, Wendy is a young girl looking to avoid attending boarding school when she meets Peter Pan, a boy who refuses to grow up.
Accompanied by her brothers and a tiny fairy, Tinker Bell, Wendy travels with Peter to the magical world of Neverland.
