At last months Disney Investor Day, a live-action version of the animated classic “Peter Pan” was announced for Disney+.
“Peter Pan & Wendy” is being directed by David Lowery, who previously directed the recent version of “Pete’s Dragon”.
A young girl rebels against “growing up” by going with her two brothers to a magical land ruled by an ageless boy obsessed with adventure who is locked in an ongoing battle with a pirate captain.
The cast includes Jude Law as Captain Hook and Yara Shahidi (“black-ish,” “grown-ish”) in the role of Tinker Bell.
According to the Wrap, Jim Gaffigan has signed on to play Captain Hook’s loyal sidekick Mr. Smee. It had been previously reported that Nick Offerman was offered the opportunity to play the role.
Jim Gaffigan has previously starred in “Tesla,” “Troop Zero,” “American Dreamer” and “Light from Light.”
