David Lowery’s Live-Action PETER PAN Finds Its Leads March 23, 2020 The folks over at Variety are hearing that newcomer Ever Anderson and Alexander Molony have been set as the leads in ‘Peter Pan & Wendy,’ Disney’s upcoming live-action take on J.M. Barrie classic ‘Peter Pan.’ Famously adapted by Disney as an animated film in 1953, ‘Peter Pan’ is the story of a boy who would not age and the children who he whisks away to the magical world of Neverland. David Lowery, who was behind the camera for Disney’s live-action remake of ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ is on board to direct Toby Halbrooks on scripting duty. Jim Whitaker is producing. According to the trade’s sources, ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’ will not be a Disney+ exclusive as previously rumoured, and will receive a theatrical release.
