Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1953 brought to audiences the most successful adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan,” and now 63 years later Disney has announced that they will be bringing us another adaptation of the beloved classic.
The “Peter Pan” live action film will be directed by David Lowrey, who is also the director of this year’s upcoming Walt Disney Studio’s film “Pete’s Dragon,” so he knows a thing or two about adapting classic stories for modern audiences! The script will be written by Toby Hallbrooks.
There are many other films that Disney has announced over the past couple of years that were classic animated films that will be made into live-action adaptations, including “The Jungle Book” opening this Friday and “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opening in May. Although I’m overjoyed about all of them, “Peter Pan” is definitely one I am most ecstatic about!
