Get ready to follow the second star to the right and head straight on until morning, because Peter Pan and Wendy is Disney's next live-action adaptation that is coming to the big screen. Get ready for some crazy fun in Neverland as our favorite band of misfits come together to take down Captain Hook in this brand new film. So who will be bringing our favorite characters to life? And what can we expect in this live-action adaptation?

Here's everything we know about Disney's Peter Pan and Wendy live-action adaptation.

Who is playing these iconic characters?

Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi just joined the cast as the always relatable Tinker Bell, according to Deadline. Jude Law was previously announced as the film's Captain Hook. Meanwhile, Alexander Molony will be playing the forever young Peter, while Ever Anderson landed the role of Wendy.

What will the movie be about?

There have been tons of big Peter Pan adaptations and each of them have been different from the last. It's likely that Disney will follow the original 1953 film. However, since script details have yet to be released and filming hasn't started yet, there's still no official word on what the film will be about.

Who is working on the film?

David Lowery will be directing the film for Disney and also co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks. David and Toby previously worked together in the 2016 adaptation of Pete's Dragon.
