Disney continues to make strides in diversifying its classic characters and is doing it once again as sources tell Deadline Yara Shahidi is set to play Tinkerbell in David Lowery’s Peter Pan and Wendy. This would mark the first time a person of color has filled the role that has traditionally featured a white actress and follows in the footsteps after Disney set Halle Bailey to play The Little Mermaid.

Shahidi joins Jude Law, who will play Captain Hook, as well as Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson, who will play the title characters. Lowery is on board to direct the project and also co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks. Jim Whitaker is producing.

Sources say the release is expected to be theatrical and not go the Disney+ streaming route.

At first I was a bit iffy with changing the whole looks of a cartoon character but I think it's good to diversify as long as it's not illogical to the character's background story

After Mulan how in the hell are they gonna pull of the native american angle in Peter Pan :wtfga:

Are they just gonna pretend it never happened? Actually I think that might be the best option for them :laughga:

Every single live-action remake is HUGELY successful except for Mulan so I’d say a smart actors/actresses would associate themselves with it. 

OT not a big Peter Pan fan but I’ll be watching.. Interested to see this new take on it.. Good for her!

Yes! I honestly loved it! They didn’t promote it as good as they did with others + Dumbo is not as popular as other Disney movies unfortunately

I feel like the role of tinkerbell suits a dumb blonde more 👱‍♀️. Yara is so wise and mature looking for the role but still excited for a POC tinkerbell

I love Disney as a whole but these live action movies are never really that amazing. There’s usually something missing from them. I would really prefer them to not touch the classics and remake “Atlantis” and “Treasure Planet.” I personally would love to see “The Black Cauldron” done right and true to the original book series.

Huge success doesn't mean good cinema.
