Disney+ has an upcoming new telling of the classic “Peter Pan” story, a live-action film called “Peter and Wendy.” We’ve been anxiously awaiting news of additional casting, and this morning, we found out who will be playing Captain Hook’s first mate- Mr. Smee.
According to The Wrap, comedian Jim Gaffigan will be donning the sailor’s striped shirt and cap in the film.
David Lowery is directing, and co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks. Jim Whitaker is producing.
We’ll let you know what else we hear about this and other Disney projects.
