‘Peter Pan & Wendy’ Movie Release Date, Trailer & Where To Watch

Peter Pan & Wendy

The latest iteration of JM Barrie’s classic tale will be flying our way in the not-too-distant future.

In the original story, a young girl named Wendy met the seemingly ageless Peter Pan on the same night that her parents told her to “grow up.” Growing up was never on Pan’s agenda, of course, and when Wendy and her brothers flew away to Neverland with this perpetually young boy, they experienced an adventure of a lifetime involving pirates, mermaids, Lost Boys, and a magical fairy named Tinker Bell.

We expect the new adaptation of Barrie’s work to follow the plotline we are so familiar with. However, a few changes have been made to the original tale, including the admittance of girls to the Lost Boys and a change of skin colour for Tinker Bell. These changes, which were noticed in the movie’s trailer (see below) have been the cause of much discussion in recent weeks with some criticising the movie for being “woke” and others celebrating it for its diversity and inclusion.

Who is the director of Peter Pan & Wendy?

David Lowery is the man behind this new adaptation of the Peter Pan tale. While many of his previous movies have been for adults, including The Green Knight and A Ghost Story, he did direct the enjoyable live-action remake of Pete’s Dragon for Disney so he does have past form when it comes to movies for children and family audiences.
