The live action version of Peter Pan coming! The recordings of that film have started. Peter Pan & Wendy will normally appear on Disney + in the course of 2022.
Disney has the recordings of the live action movie Peter Pan & Wendy started up. That’s – as the name suggests – a new version of the classic Peter Pan from 1953. The film is one of the next in the list of live action versions of Disney classics. Disney fans can still enjoy first Cruella.
Expectations for Peter Pan & Wendy are very big. And the cast Disney managed to assemble is a good start. For example, the young (yet experienced) actors Ever Anderson and Alexander Molony play the roles of Wendy and Peter Pan. Those two are already having fun together on the set.
Shortly after that announcement, Disney also announced the arrival of Yara Shahidi (Grown-ish) On. She plays the role of the world famous fairy Tinkerbell. Bad guy is none other than Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts). He will be seen as Captain Hook, although Disney actually had his eye on Will Smith for the role.
Peter Pan & Wendy
The plot of Peter Pan & Wendy is slightly different from that of the 1953 animated film. Wendy has to go to boarding school, but she doesn’t want that at all. She decides to escape with her brothers and ends up in Neverland. There they meet Peter Pan, and the rest is history, as they say.
The director is David Lowery. He has been with the project since 2016. Lowery then had the Disney movie Pete’s Dragon released into the world. That collaboration was such a success that Disney immediately wanted to renew it.
