During the MTV Movie & Film Awards, actress Yara Shahidi spoke with Variety about the legacy of the hit ABC series “Black-ish”, which is coming to an end with the eighth season.

Also during the interview, Yara shared some details on playing Tinker Bell in the upcoming Disney+ Original movie “Peter Pan and Wendy”.

“You know, Tinkerbell is really fun.  I think what I like the most about this take is that Tinkerbell is coming with a lot of agency. She may be a famous sidekick, but I love the fact that she is driven and motivated in her own ways. I don’t want to give too much up, but I’m really looking forward to this adaptation.

Check out the video below:


“Peter Pan & Wendy” is being directed by David Lowery, who previously directed the recent version of “Pete’s Dragon”.  The film tells the classic story of a young girl who is rebelling 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.

Jude Law will be playing the role of Captain Hook in the upcoming Disney+ film.


Yara Shahidi can be seen in the Black-ish spin-off series “Grown-ish” on Hulu and on Disney+ internationally, where the show is a Star Original.   “Black-ish” is also available on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ internationally.
