Peter Pan is one of Disney’s all-time cartoon classics. Many of the characters’ performances are unforgettable, especially Captain Hook’s quirky righthand man, Mr. Smee.
Disney is in pre-production of the live-action Peter Pan, Peter Pan & Wendy. So far, Ever Anderson is set to play Wendy while Alexander Molony will play Peter Pan, the famous boy who doesn’t want to grow up.
Director David Lowery, known for Disney’s live-action remake of Pete’s Dragon, will steer the ship into Neverland.
The Wrap reports that Jim Gaffigan has now joined the cast to play the role of Mr. Smee.
Mr. Smee often causes more trouble for Captain Hook so it will be intriguing to see how Gaffigan takes on Smee’s bubbly personality.
As previously reported, Jude Law is set to play Captain Hook. Additionally, Yara Shahidi will play Tinkerbell with Alyssa Wapanatâhk as Tiger Lily.
Peter Pan & Wendy will release on Disney+.
