Looks like it’s Peter Pan’s turn for another live-action remake. Sources report that Disney has cast the two leads in the forthcoming film, with Alexander Molony (The Reluctant Landlord) as Peter and newcomer Ever Anderson (who will reportedly be playing a young Natasha Romanoff in Black Widow) as Wendy.
Peter Pan & Wendy will be a live-action update of Disney’s 1953 animated classic Peter Pan, itself based on the novel and play by J.M. Barrie about the boy who would not grow up. There have been countless adaptations and riffs on the Peter Pan story, from stage musicals to Steven Spielberg‘s Hook, but the Disney film remains extremely influential in the character’s design and impact, even inspiring a popular ride at Disneyland.
Disney continues to expand its live-action slate after the 2019 success of Aladdin and The Lion King, while its latest live-action title, Mulan, is set to hit theaters March 27.
