The first trailer has been released for Walt Disney Studios’ live-action Peter Pan & Wendy, which debuts April 28 on Disney+.
David Lowery (The Green Knight; Pete’s Dragon) directs this new version of the classic story, but in this version, the tale is viewed through the eyes of Wendy.
In Peter Pan & Wendy, Wendy Darling (Black Widow‘s Ever Anderson) is a young girl afraid to leave her childhood home behind, who meets Peter Pan (The Reluctant Landlord‘s Alexander Molony), a boy who refuses to grow up.
Alongside her brothers and a tiny fairy, Tinker Bell (grown-ish‘s Yara Shahidi), she travels with Peter to the magical world of Neverland. There, she encounters an evil pirate captain, Captain Hook (Captain Marvel‘s Jude Law), and embarks on a thrilling and dangerous adventure that will change her life forever.
The ensemble cast also includes Alyssa Wapanatâhk, Joshua Pickering, Jacobi Jupe, Molly Parker, Alan Tudyk, and Jim Gaffigan. Lowery directed the film using a script he co-wrote with collaborator Toby Halbrooks.
“In making ‘Peter Pan and Wendy,’ we set out to craft a film that honors both the original J.M. Barrie text and Walt Disney’s animated adaptation; we wanted to invigorate our retelling with emotional sincerity, an open heart, and a grand yearning for adventure,” Lowery said in a press statement.
“Hundreds of incredible artists spent many years bringing this film to the screen; I’m excited for audiences to see their work, to go on this ride, and to rediscover an evergreen tale from a new perspective.”
The film was announced for Disney+ at D23 Expo 2022 with an appearance from Alexander Molony, Ever Anderson, Alyssa Wapanâtahk (Tiger Lily), and Jude Law.
“Tell me, how did you come to Neverland?” Captain Hook (Law) inquires of Wendy (Anderson) in voiceover at the beginning of the trailer.
We then see her meet Peter Pan and the Lost Boys as they set out on their adventure. We also get a few quick peeks at Shahidi as Tink before Hook returns to ask…
“Where is Peter Pan?”
