The Live Action ‘Peter Pan and Wendy’ Have Cast Their Titular Characters So Take A Peek
My first ever crush was Peter Pan in the 2003 live-action film played by Jeremy Sumpter.
In fact, there was one week where I dreamt he was my friend and play with me in my backyard sandpit. Every night (no innuendo, plz).
Decades on, I can still say it was the ~best~ week of dreams I’ve had yet.
And so when Disney announced a live-remake-remake, I was the first on board the idea despite how exhausting Hollywood is for “growing up” and out of already done movies…
Variety now reports we have faces to put to the names of Peter Pan and Wendy Darling to inspire a new wave of 6-year-olds' movie crushes.
Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson are locked in to star as the lead characters in Peter Pan and Wendy, with no other actors confirmed to be attached to the project yet.
Anderson is notably the daughter of actress Milla Jovovich and director Paul WS Anderson, and will appear on our screens as the young Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming Black Widow.
Molony is a 12-year-old British schoolboy best known for his Disney Junior credit Claude.
It’s yet to be revealed the nuances of the plotline, but it can be assumed it’ll rinse and repeat the boy-in-green who refuses-to-grow-up enrapturing the Darling children on an adventure to Neverland with his Lost Boys.
Filming is set to begin in Canada as early as next month according to The Times, and will go to a theatrical release.
Can’t wait to find out who’ll be playing Tinkerbell and Hook!
