Disney+ has finally released the trailer for the live-action adaptation of the 1953 Disney animated classic Peter Pan titled Peter Pan & Wendy. They also revealed that the film is set to arrive exclusively on the streamer this coming April 28. The Green Knight director David Lowery helmed the new film.
The trailer gave us our first look at Disney's new take on the classic J.M. Barrie story including Jude Law's portrayal of Captain Hook and Black-ish star Yara Shahidi's iteration of Tinker Bell. It also showed a peek at the movie's rendition of Neverland, which seems to be more serious and darker than the other adaptations.

Based on what we've seen here, it looks like Lowery took his own approach to tell the classic story as it has a very different look from the other Peter Pan live-action films that were done in the past and even the 1953 animated film.
Considering that Wendy is also in the film's title, it seems that part of the story will mainly focus on her as well and this new adaptation will have a more equal approach to telling the journey of the two titular characters throughout Neverland.
Hopefully, the film will be able to deliver the same quality as the best Disney live-action films that are based on animated classics. With Lowery's involvement, there is a lot of hope that this film could be extra special and it will be satisfying to the audience.
The film "introduces Wendy Darling, a young girl afraid to leave her childhood home behind, who meets Peter Pan, a boy who refuses to grow up. Alongside her brothers and a tiny fairy, Tinker Bell, she travels with Peter to the magical world of Neverland. There, she encounters an evil pirate captain, Captain Hook, and embarks on a thrilling and dangerous adventure that will change her life forever."
The cast also includes Alexander Molony, Ever Anderson, Alyssa Wapanatâhk, Joshua Pickering, Jacobi Jupe, Molly Parker, Alan Tudyk, and Jim Gaffigan. Lowery co-wrote the screenplay with Toby Halbrooks. Jim Whitaker serves as the producer after working with Lowery on Pete's Dragon.
