We just got an exclusive first glimpse at the upcoming Disney film Peter Pan & Wendy, an ambitious re-telling of the beloved J.M. Barrie classic that will be streaming on Disney Plus by the end of April. The trailer showcases the timeless story of Wendy (Ever Anderson) and her siblings being spirited away to the mystical land of Neverland, where they are taken under the wing of the mischievous Peter Pan (Alexander Molony). This magical world is filled with danger, and the group must battle the nefarious Captain Hook (Jude Law) and his pirate crew. Written and directed by David Lowery, Peter Pan & Wendy looks to be a thoughtful yet captivating revisiting of the original story, with familiar characters and locations from the animated movie. We also get a first look at the magical Tinkerbell (Yara Shahidi) who looks every bit as enchanting as her animated counterpart.

The timeless story of Peter has been reimagined and reinvented countless times over the years, but this latest iteration looks to be taking a more nostalgic approach. As David Lowery, writer and director of the film, stated in the trailer’s accompanying press release: “In making ‘Peter Pan & Wendy,’ we sought to honor the original J.M. Barrie text and Walt Disney’s iconic animated adaptation, all while infusing it with a deep emotional resonance and a profound sense of adventure.”

It’s coming to Disney+ on April 28, joining a host of other high-profile titles on the streaming service, such as the recent Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which set a new record for the highest-viewed Marvel movie premiere in Disney+ history.
