As Disney announced last Wednesday, the production of Disney's "Peter Pan & Wendy" remake has begun in Vancouver. Director David Lowery and producer Jim Whitaker, who previously collaborated on "Pete's Dragon" in 2016, are responsible for the live-action project. The script was written by Toby Halbrook and it is said to be based in large part on the original from 1953, which in turn is a film adaptation of J. M. Barrie's 110-year-old novella "Peter and Wendy". The cast is also quite impressive, because with Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson, they have found two suitable actors for Peter Pan and his lady friend Wendy. They will be joined by Jude Law as Captain Hook, Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell and Jim Gaffigan as Smee. Also new to the cast are Alan Tudyk and Molly Parker as Mr. & Mrs. Darling, as well as the still-unknown actors Joshua Pickering as John, Jacobi Jupe as Michael and Alyssa Wapanatâhk as Tiger Lily. We are looking forward to the remake of the timeless tale of Neverland and eagerly await its release next year.
