From Mulan to Aladdin, Disney has treated fans to magical live-action reboots of its most iconic titles.

The next movie to get this treatment - which has just started filming - is Peter Pan & Wendy starring Jude Law and Yara Shahidi and we are counting down the days until we can see it.

Production has commenced in Vancouver and it will be directed by David Lowery, who also directed Pete's Dragon.

Based on J. M. Barrie's novel Peter and Wendy and inspired by the 1953 animated classic, Peter Pan & Wendy is an out of this world tale about a young girl who, going against her parents' wishes to attend boarding school, travels with her two younger brothers to the magical world of Neverland.

Wendy meets Peter Pan, a boy who refuses to grow up, when she arrives and a tiny fairy and a pirate captain. They soon find themselves on a thrilling and dangerous adventure far, far away from Wendy's family and home.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Jude Law will play the evil pirate Captain Hook. He'll be joined by Yara Shahidi as Tinkerbell, Ever Anderson as Wendy and Alexander Molony as Peter Pan.

Tinkerbell will be played on the big screen by Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi (

The cast is rounded out with Molly Parker as Mrs. Darling and Alan Tudyk as Mr. Darling. Comedian Jim Gaffigan has been cast as Smee.

Newcomers Joshua Pickering, Jacobi Jupe and Alyssa Wapanatâhk will play John, Michael and Tiger Lily respectively.

"Peter Pan has long been one of my favourite stories, partially because I've always resisted growing up, but also because of the heart, adventure and imagination that makes J.M. Barrie's original tale so evergreen," explains director David Lowery.

He adds: "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to redefine his iconic characters for a new generation - and even more excited that I get to do so with such an exceptional cast and crew."

In related Disney news, a live-action version of Pinocchio is in development and it is set to star Tom Hanks as Pinocchio's creator Geppetto and The Pembrokeshire Murders and Beauty and the Beast star Luke Evans as the villainous Coachman.

Peter Pan & Wendy is set to debut on Disney+ in 2022.
