If you haven’t yet had your fill of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland — or of live-action updates on children’s classics, for that matter — a new film from director Brenda Chapman is doubling down on all of the above. The co-director of Pixar’s Brave is preparing to make her live-action debut with Come Away, a movie that combines elements of J.M. Barrie and Lewis Carroll’s beloved books into one magical (and kind of sad) story.
Surprise! (Not really.) Disney is developing yet another live-action remake of one of their classic animated properties, this time setting their sights on Peter Pan — which sort of feels like a real shots-fired situation following the failure of Joe Wright’s Pan over at Warner Bros. David Lowery, who recently helmed the Pete’s Dragon remake for Disney, has been tapped to direct and script a new live-action Peter Pan movie.
Rapidly becoming our favorite holiday tradition, December 4 will see NBC’s latest live-action train wreck as ‘Girls‘ star Allison Williams crosses hooks with Chrisopher Walken for NBC’s forth coming ‘Peter Pan Live!’ stage musical. So, if you ever wanted to see Marnie seducing young women, or hanging from a rope as Christopher Walkens all over the scenery, check out our first look at ‘Peter Pan Live!’ in action!
However seemingly disorganized, NBC struck social media gold last year with its 'The Sound of Music Live!' special, and everything we've seen of 2014's 'Peter Pan' follow-up has hit squarely in the same vein. Get your first look at 'Girls' star Allison Williams donning fishnet sleeves in the title role of NBC's 'Peter Pan' with the first official costume photo!
