A special screening of the live-action adaptation of the 1953 animated classic and the J.M. Barrie novel took place earlier this evening at New York’s South Street Seaport Museum with the cast and directors of Disney’s epic film event “Peter Pan & Wendy.”
To celebrate the movie’s premiere on April 28, 2023, exclusively on Disney+, Jude Law, Yara Shahidi, Ever Anderson, Jim Gaffigan, and Alyssa Wapanatahk were joined by the producers Jim Whitaker and Adam Borba.
David Lowery, who also directed “The Green Knight” and “Pete’s Dragon,” introduces Wendy Darling, a young child who is reluctant to leave her childhood home and meets Peter Pan, a boy who is unwilling to grow up. She journeys to the enchanted land of Neverland with Peter, her brothers, and a tiny fairy named Tinker Bell. There, she meets the evil Captain Hook, a pirate, and sets out on a perilous adventure that will forever alter her life.
The cast also includes Molly Parker (“House of Cards”), Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), Jacobi Jupe (“A Discovery of Witches”), and Joshua Pickering (“A Discovery of Witches”). The executive producer for this Disney+ movie is Toby Halbrooks.
