‘Peter Pan and Wendy’ Disney Remake Begins Principal Photography

Drew Baumgarter, writer for Collider, recently published an article discussing how Disney’s Peter Pan and Wendy live action remake was now in production, with principal photography starting in Vancouver. J.M. Barrie’s novel will soon be hitting the silver screen again, with Alexander Molony playing Peter and Ever Anderson playing Wendy. Captain Hook will be played by none other than Jude Law.

This film will be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who is known for directing Resident Evil: Retribution, Mortal Kombat, and Event Horizon

Peter Pan and Wendy follows the story of three children who fly to Neverland with their friend Peter Pan. There, they encounter mermaids, they befriend the Lost Boys, and they fight against the pirate, Captain Hook–a man intent on revenge after Peter cut off his hand and fed it to a crocodile. This story has inspired several films and books. It should be exciting to see what this addition to the Peter Pan canon brings!

This Game of Thrones prequel will take place during the civil war that House Targaryen took part in—the one that came to be known as “The Dance of Dragons,” according to Weiss. The anticipated series is tentatively set to air in 2022, but time will tell if the pandemic or other outlying factors impact its release date.

Now, fans know that Steve Toussaint has been cast as Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best has been cast as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans will play Otto Hightower, Sonoya Mizuno will play Mysaria. These are some great choices for the Game of Thrones prequel. These are four of the more prominent roles in the series, but we will, no doubt, learn about more actors joining the cast in the coming months as well.

In this series, we will get to learn what happened during the Dance of Dragons, and without a doubt, we’ll also get to see some more dragons. And what can beat that?
