Peter Pan and Wendy will play Alexander Molony and Ever Gabo Anderson as the titular duo, in the latest adaptation of Barrie’s 1901 novel.
The book tells the story of young Wendy Darling and her two brothers Michael and Peter, who fly to Neverland after finding Peter in their bedroom.
The siblings are welcomed into a magical world filled with fairies, mermaids, Indians and pirates, and team up with the crew of Peter The Lost Boys to defeat Captain Hook and take control of his ship The Jolly Roger.
Many actors have taken on the role over the years, including Dustin Hoffman in the 1991 movie Hook, opposite Robin Williams as the adult version of Pan.
Jason Isaacs starred in Peter Pan in 2003, Christopher Walken also starred in NBC’s live version of the 1954 musical.
Stanley Tucci also played the role in the 2015 TV movie Peter and Wendy, and Colin O’Donoghue also played the role in the TBEN series Once Upon A Time.
Hook’s most recent incarnation came in the 2015 Pan prequel which saw Garrett Hedlund play a young version of the pirate before losing his hand and turning into a life of villainy.
In many versions, the same actor played Captain Hook and Mr. Darling, as the original novel suggests that the villain is a mirror of the strict father of the Darling children and his attempts to force them to “ grow up. ”
