“Peter Pan & Wendy” Trailer Reveals David Lowery’s Live-Action Adaptation of the Iconic Tale
The official trailer for Disney’s Peter Pan & Wendy has arrived, revealing our longest glimpse yet of what visionary director David Lowery (The Green Knight) has cooked up with his adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s iconic novel and the equally iconic 1953 animated movie.
The trailer reveals a young, timid girl named Wendy Darling (Ever Anderson) who wants nothing more than to be able to stay safe inside her childhood home. This desire, however, is challenged by an encounter with Peter Pan (Alexander Molony), the boy who simply refused to ever grow up. Wendy ends up leaving her childhood home, alongside her brothers and everyone’s favorite fairy, Tinker Bell (Yara Shahidi) and joins Peter on a trip to the wondrous world of Neverland. It’s there she comes face-to-face with evil incarnate, Captain Hook (Jude Law), who will test Wendy and her friends in ways she never dreamed of.
Lowery is a singularly talented filmmaker, and he seems ideally suited to give us a fresh vision of Neverland, both its wonders and its dangers. Joining Anderson, Molony, Law, and Shahidi are Joshua Pickering and Jacobi Jupe as John and Michael Darling, Jim Gaffigan as Smea, Noah Matthews Matofsky as Slightly, Sebastian Billingsley-Rodriguez as Nibs, Caelan Edie as Tootles, and Diana Tsoy as Birdie.
Check out the official trailer below. Peter Pan & Wendy arrives on Disney+ on April 28.
