Disney's Live-Action 'Peter Pan' Reboot Has Found Its Lead Stars
Disney will once again breathe life into the timeless tale of the boy who wouldn't grow up, Peter Pan.
The last time we saw the free-spirited young boy from the mystical Neverland in live-action format was in 2015's Pan. The late Robin Williams played a grown up version of the character in the 1991 classic Hook while 2003's Peter Pan starred Jeremy Sumpter.
Now, the good folks over the House of Mouse have reportedly found its lead stars for the upcoming live-action remake of the animated classic. Variety reports that newcomer Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter) have been cast to play the titular roles in Peter Pan & Wendy.
