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.
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!
There have been so many television shows and movies that have stopped production due to the Coronavirus and the latest movie in the Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 3 is the latest one to suspend filming, to stop the spread of COVID-19.
If only there was a spell to make this pandemic go away!

Filming was supposed to begin this past Monday in the UK. However, Warner Bros. has decided to halt production. At this time there is no information as to when Fantastic Beasts 3 will start filming again.
There is also no news on if the release date will change either. It all has to fit around the actors schedules. The same cast will reprise their roles for the third movie which includes Eddie Redmayne,Katherine Waterston and Dan Fogler.

The film is not the first to stall production due to the current pandemic, with everything from Batman to Riverdale halting filming. With Broadway gone dark and Daniel Radcliffe’s London performance cut short, COVID-19 has truly wreaked havoc on the industry this month.
In times like these it is important to remember to stay healthy, enjoy time with your family, while also being thoughtful of anyone else around you who might need help.
