Disney's New Live-Action Peter Pan Movie Starts Production
Peter Pan & Wendy will star Jude Law as Captain Hook and is now shooting in Vancouver.
The new live-action movie adaptation of Peter Pan has started production. The Disney film is titled Peter Pan & Wendy and will star Jude Law as Captain Hook.
Peter Pan & Wendy is now shooting in Vancouver, ahead of a 2022 release on Disney+. The movie is directed by David Lowery, who previously helmed the Disney film Pete's Dragon, as well as the upcoming dark fantasy film The Green Knight.
The cast also includes newcomer Alexander Molony as Peter, Ever Anderson (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter) as Wendy, Yara Shahidi (Grown-ish) as Tinkerbell, Molly Parker (House of Cards) as Mrs. Darling, Alan Tudyk (Rogue One) as Mr Darling, and Jim Gaffigan (Bob's Burgers) as Smee.
In a statement, Lowery said, "Peter Pan has long been one of my favorite stories, partially because I’ve always resisted growing up, but also because of the heart, adventure and imagination that makes J.M. Barrie's original tale so evergreen. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to redefine his iconic characters for a new generation--and even more excited that I get to do so with such an exceptional cast and crew."
Peter Pan & Wendy will be the first high-profile Disney live-action movie to be made specifically for Disney+. Although last year's Mulan was given a premium release on the studio's streaming platform, it was originally intended for a traditional theatrical release before the pandemic closed cinemas across the world.
The next live-action Disney movie will be Cruella. The film stars Emma Stone as the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain, and it hits theaters in May. Check out the latest Cruella trailer.
