Yara Shahidi to Play Tinker Bell in Disney’s ‘Peter Pan’ Live-Action Remake!
Disney is making a live-action remake of Peter Pan and the role of Tinker Bell will be played by Yara Shahidi!
Peter Pan and Wendy is the title of the upcoming movie being made at Disney and it will be given a theatrical release, according to Deadline.
Jude Law is set to play Captain Hook with newcomers Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson (who is Milla Jovovich‘s daughter) taking on the title roles.
This marks the first time that a person of color will be playing the role of Tinker Bell and we think Yara is such a great choice! She is best known for her role as Zoey on Black-ish and the spinoff series Grown-ish. She also starred in the recent YA movie The Sun Is Also a Star.
David Lowery, who directed Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake, will be directing the film from a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks.
