Peter Pan & Wendy’s Movie Release Had Several Delays

Disney has faced a lengthy process in creating and releasing its upcoming live-action film, Peter Pan & Wendy, due to several factors. The movie is both an adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s original Peter Pan novel and a remake of Disney’s 1953 animated classic.

The film was first announced in 2016 and has undergone several delays and multiple drafts as the director and screenwriter, David Lowery, and co-screenwriter, Toby Halbrooks, strived to remain faithful to the source material while removing problematic elements like the racist portrayal of Native Americans and the use of guns. The movie’s title was officially announced in 2020, and filming was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cast, including Jude Law as Captain Hook, was revealed, and the movie finally started filming in spring and summer 2021 with reshoots in February 2022. Peter Pan & Wendy was initially intended to be released exclusively on Disney+, but it was later changed to have a theatrical release after the casting of Alexander Molony as Peter and Ever Anderson as Wendy.
