Peter Pan, or Peter Pan: The Boy Who Would Never Grow Up (1904) by J. M. Barrie, is perhaps one of the most highly adapted children’s stories of all time. The original play was adapted into a novel by Barrie in 1911 (called Peter and Wendy), and has countless iterations in popular culture, from books like Peter and the Starcatchers, to the classic 1953 Disney animated film Peter Pan, and many more films, plays, and books.

Now, Disney is turning the iconic story of the boy who never grows up into a brand new film with an all-star cast. Peter Pan & Wendy was unveiled in December of 2020 as one of a lineup of direct-to-streaming films from The Walt Disney Company. Peter Pan & Wendy will debut in 2022, and you can find the film when it releases—as well as the original animated Peter Pan—on Disney+.

Where can you find Peter Pan & Wendy when it comes out?

You can stream Peter Pan & Wendy when it's released on Disney+. The streaming service is available via internet connection if you live in Australia, Austria, Canada, the Channel Islands, France, Germany, India, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Italy, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, or the U.S. Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming platform can be accessed from desktop browsers, mobile devices, game consoles, and more.

Peter Pan & Wendy will explore the story of Peter Pan as fans have never seen it before, with a brand-new cast brought in to play the familiar characters we know and love. The title characters, Peter Pan and Wendy Darling, will be played by Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson, respectively, and Yara Shahidi will star in the iconic role of Tinker Bell, Peter’s fairy companion. Jude Law will also star as the villainous pirate Captain Hook, and the Darling family will be helmed by Alan Tudyk as Mr. Darling, alongside Molly Parker as Mrs. Darling, Joshua Blue Pickering as John Darling, and Jacobi Jupe as Michael Darling.

Peter Pan & Wendy will be directed by Peter Lowery. Writer Toby Halbrooks is credited alongside the original writers of the 1953 animated film adaptation, perhaps indicating that the 2022 film will stick quite closely to the animated original. From the released teaser trailer, the bells of Big Ben can be heard overlaid with the ticking of a clock—likely the clock stuck within the crocodile of Captain Hook’s nightmares—and we see London’s Tower Bridge shrouded in fog before we see the film’s logo.

Disney has produced several Peter Pan adaptations and series over the years, from the original 1953 film, to multiple films and series that focus on the fairy Tinker Bell and her friends. Disney has yet to announce an official premiere date for Peter Pan & Wendy, but when the film releases you’ll be able to find it on Disney+.
