From ‘Grown-ish’ to fairy-ish, TV star Yara Shahidi is the latest name signing on to sprinkle a little magic on Disney’s forthcoming live action adaptation of ‘Peter Pan.’
Shahidi is set to play Tinkerbell in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan redo. She will join Jude Law, who is set to play Captain Hook, and Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson, who will play Peter and Wendy.
David Lowery, who directed Pete’s Dragon for the studio, is on board to helm Peter Pan & Wendy, based on Disney’s 1953 animated movie and co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks.
At writing, Disney has not unveiled a tentative release date for the project.
