The cast will also involve the African American actress Yara shahidi in the role of Tinker Bell; Ever Anderson in Wendy’s e Alexander Molony in that of Peter Pan. Molly Parker will be Mrs. Darling, Alan Tudyk Mr. Darling and newcomers Joshua Pickering, Jacobi Jupe and Alyssa Wapanatâhk will be respectively John, Michael and Tiger Lily. Jim Gaffigan, who will be Sponge, closes the circle. Peter Pan e Wendy, which will be produced by Jim Whitaker, will focus on Wendy’s story, a girl who, defying her parents’ desire to see her in boarding school, will leave with her two brothers for the magical Neverland: there she will meet Peter Pan, the boy who refuses to grow up, a little fairy and a evil pirate.
“Peter Pan has long been one of my favorite stories, partly because I’ve always been reluctant to grow up, but also because of the excitement, adventure and imagination that make JM Barrie’s original tale so relevant” he said. said director David Lowery. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to redefine his iconic characters for a new generation and I’m even happier to be able to do so with such a sensational cast and crew.”. It goes without saying that expectations, as for all Disney live-action, are very high and that the comparison with the original cartoon will be inevitable.
