Disney has just dropped the second trailer for their newest live-action reboot “Peter Pan & Wendy.” In 1953, Disney did an animated and very loose adaptation of J. M. Barrie’s classic novel “Peter Pan.” To be fair, you kind of have to tone down how homicidal the characters in the novel are to be family-friendly.
“Peter Pan & Wendy” follows Wendy Darling (Ever Anderson), a young girl afraid to leave her childhood home behind. That is until she meets the legendary Peter Pan (Alexander Molony), a boy who refuses to grow up. With the aid of the tiny fairy Tinker Bell (Yara Shahidi) and her brothers in tow, she goes with Peter to the magical world of Neverland. While there, she meets an evil pirate captain, Captain Hook (Jude Law), and embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change her life forever.
In addition to Law (“Captain Marvel”), Molony (“The Reluctant Landlord”), Anderson (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”), and Shahidi (“Grown-ish”). The film also stars Alyssa Wapanatâhk (“Rehab”), Joshua Pickering (“A Discovery of Witches”), Jacobi Jupe (“Britannia”), Molly Parker (“Deadwood”), Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), and Jim Gaffigan (“The Jim Gaffigan Show”).
David Lowery (“Pete’s Dragon“) directs “Peter Pan & Wendy” from a screenplay by David Lowery and Toby Halbrooks (“The Green Knight”). It is produced by Jim Whitaker (“Pete’s Dragon“). With Adam Borba (“A Wrinkle in Time”), Thomas M. Hammel (“Thor: Ragnarok”), and Halbrooks as executive producers.
“Peter Pan & Wendy” will hit streaming on Disney+ on April 28, 2023. Check out the magical new trailer below:
