David Lowery isn’t the filmmaker one would expect to be a Disney favorite, but he most certainly is. Having begun his career with indie darlings such as Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and A Ghost Story, Lowery turned to the mainstream with Disney’s remake of Pete’s Dragon, an unexpected hit for the company. And now, after taking some time to his passion project The Green Knight, Lowery is back with Disney for Peter Pan & Wendy.
The latest live-action retelling from Disney, Peter Pan & Wendy tells the classic tale of Wendy Darling, the Lost Boys, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, and of course, Captain Hook.
Starring in the film is Jude Law, Alexander Molony, Ever Anderson, Yara Shahidi, Alyssa Wapanatâhk, Joshua Pickering, Jacobi Jupe, Molly Parker, Alan Tudyk, and Jim Gaffigan.
Once planned for a theatrical release, Peter Pan & Wendy will instead hit Disney+ exclusively on April 28th.
