A new live-action reimagining of the J.M. Barrie novel and the 1953 animated classic, “Peter Pan & Wendy,” is coming and we absolutely cannot wait!
“Peter Pan & Wendy,” directed by David Lowery (“The Green Knight,” “Pete’s Dragon”), reintroduces to us the same characters we’ve grown up to love: Wendy Darling, a young girl afraid to leave her childhood home behind, and Peter Pan, a boy who refuses to grow up. Alongside her brothers and a tiny fairy, Tinker Bell, Wendy travels with Peter to the magical world of Neverland where she then encounters an evil pirate captain, Captain Hook, and embarks on a thrilling and dangerous adventure that will change her life forever.
“In making ‘Peter Pan & Wendy,’ we set out to craft a film that honors both the original J.M. Barrie text and Walt Disney’s animated adaptation,” Lowery said in an official press statement. “We wanted to invigorate our retelling with emotional sincerity, an open heart, and a grand yearning for adventure. Hundreds of incredible artists spent many years bringing this film to the screen; I’m excited for audiences to see their work, to go on this ride, and to rediscover an evergreen tale from a new perspective.”
The movie stars Jude Law (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”), Alexander Molony (“The Reluctant Landlord”), Ever Anderson (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”), Yara Shahidi (“Grown-ish”), Alyssa Wapanatâhk, Joshua Pickering (“A Discovery of Witches”), Jacobi Jupe, Molly Parker (“House of Cards”), Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), and Jim Gaffigan (“The Jim Gaffigan Show”).
The screenplay is written by David Lowery & Toby Halbrooks (“The Green Knight”) while Jim Whitaker (“Pete’s Dragon”) steps in as the producer, with Adam Borba (“A Wrinkle in Time”), Thomas M. Hammel (“Thor: Ragnarok”), and Toby Halbrooks serving as executive producers.
“Peter Pan & Wendy” will begin streaming on April 28, 2023, exclusively on Disney+.
