During last month’s Investor Day event, Disney revealed that the live-action movie “Peter Pan”, called “Peter Pan and Wendy” would becoming exclusively to Disney+.
Peter Pan & Wendy, is inspired by the Disney animated classic and will be directed by David Lowery (“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 The Illuminerdi, Nick Offerman has been made an offer to play the role of Captain Hook’s sidekick, Smee.
He is best known for his role as Ron Swanson in the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” and has appeared in a number of movies including “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part”, “Ice Age: Collision Course” and “21 Jump Street”.
“Smee” is Captain Hook’s loyal first mate, though his bumbling behavior often prevents him from being much help.
