Disney’s live action remake of Peter Pan has cast Wendy and Peter.

The 1953 animated classic is set to be among the next Disney films to get the live-action treatment – with Pete’s Dragon director David Lowery at the helm.

The adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s novel tells the story of Wendy Darling, who mesmerises her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling, and the fearsome Captain Hook.

But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush jungles of Neverland.

Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life–free of grown-up rules–while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates.

And now Peter Pan & Wendy – which is due to hit cinemas next month – has now found its Wendy and Peter.

According to VarietyEver Anderson will play Wendy while Alexander Molony will be playing Peter Pan.

The next live-action Disney film to hit the big screen is Mulan – which is due to hit cinemas in Ireland in late March. You can find the first reactions to the film right here (and it’s looking like good news for Disney fans).
