Disney’s latest Peter Pan live-action adaptation, Peter Pan & Wendy, has just released its trailer and fans are excited because of its trip down memory lane, bringing much-needed nostalgia.
Peter Pan and Wendy’s trip has been depicted on cinema in innumerable ways before, from the 1991 cult classic “Hook” with Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, and Julia Roberts to NBC’s 2014 “Peter Pan Live” telecast with Allison Williams and the 2015 “Pan” movie.
The legendary characters from the 1953 movie are fully depicted in the teaser, including the Darlings’ cherished dog Nana and a lifelike likeness of John Darling (Joshua Pickering), complete with a top hat and round spectacles.
The new film stars Jude Law, who plays the iconic and extremely unsettling Captain Hook, who is seen in the trailer donning his trademark hook, red cloak, and twisted mustache; Alexander Molony, who will make his feature film debut as Peter Pan in the film; Ever Anderson, who will play Wendy, who will be transported to Neverland; and Yara Shahidi, who will play the fan favorite, Tinkerbell.
“Peter Pan & Wendy” will offer a diverse telling of the well-known story, far from other J.M. Barrie tale retelling, fusing Pan’s fantastical setting with a contemporary backdrop.
Disney+ will start streaming “Peter Pan & Wendy” on April 28.
