Yara spoke about her experience playing Tinker Bell in the film during a January 2023 appearance on The Tonight Show.

“It was incredible, and I thought I was being punked the whole time,” Yara gushed. “Because, you know, I know I’m being part of Peter Pan & Wendy, and you see, with Avatar coming out, what behind-the-scenes of all these CGI motion-capture movies look like.”

“So I was ready for the harnesses and the suits with the dots on it,” she continued. “[My costars] were on incredible sets in Vancouver, and I was in a garage in Burbank the whole time… They realize, I mean, the tech is so advanced.
