Get ready for a trip back to Neverland — Peter Pan is headed to the big screen again! Disney is gearing up for a brand-new live-action film about the boy who won’t grow up.
Set to be titled Peter Pan & Wendy, according to Variety, the upcoming flick will be the fourth remake of the original 1953 animated classic based off a J.M. Barrie novel that followed a young boy who brought young children to the magical world of Neverland. It has since been reimagined into movies like 2003’s Peter Pan, Hook and Pan.
Now, a truly star-studded cast — including Yara Shahidi as the first-ever Black woman to play Tinker Bell — is set to bring these magical characters to life. Deadline first reported that the Grown-ish actress, 20, would play the sassy fairy on Friday, September 25. She also confirmed the news with an Instagram post.
“Thank you for all of the love. It, truly, means so much to me,” Yara wrote alongside an artist’s drawing of her as Tinker Bell. “I’m excited for this next adventure!”
Yara isn’t the only famous face headed to the big screen in this upcoming Peter Pan remake. Scroll through our gallery to meet the full cast!
