Disney’s beloved 1953 animated classic Peter Pan is getting a live-action retelling with Peter Pan & Wendy, set to be released on Disney+ later this year. The movie introduces Wendy Darling, a young girl who dreams of adventure and meets Peter Pan, a boy who refuses to grow up. Along with her brothers and the mischievous fairy, Tinker Bell, Wendy is whisked away to the magical world of Neverland, where she battles the notorious pirate captain, Captain Hook, and discovers the true meaning of courage and friendship. If that sounds too magical to be true, then you might be glad to hear that LEGO will offer a building set centered around this upcoming movie as well.
According to a report from The Brick Show, LEGO may have given us a glimpse of a tie-in set to celebrate the release of Peter Pan & Wendy. The LEGO Disney Peter Pan & Wendy’s Storybook Adventure (43220) is a 111-piece building set that also doubles as a kind of brick-built pop-up book. These first product images are credited to German LEGO retailer Lucky Bricks, who have already listed the said set on their home shopping website. This LEGO set is scheduled to be available for purchase starting March 1, 2023.
The LEGO set features the characters of Peter Pan, Wendy, and the iconic villain Captain Hook in their microdoll versions (a term LEGO uses for this new line of modified minifigures). Check out these images and have a closer look
The movie features a talented cast of up-and-coming young actors, including Alexander Molony as Peter Pan and Ever Anderson as Wendy Darling. Molony is a British actor who has previously appeared in the BBC miniseries “The Reluctant Landlord”, while Anderson is the daughter of Milla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson and has made her acting debut in Black Widow as a younger version of the title character. In addition to Molony and Anderson, the movie stars Jude Law as the infamous Captain Hook, Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell, and Jim Gaffigan as Mr. Smee, Hook’s loyal first mate. Law is an accomplished actor with a long list of credits to his name, including “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, “Sherlock Holmes”, and “The Young Pope”, while Shahidi is best known for her role in the TV series “Black-ish” and its spinoff, “Grown-ish”.
Peter Pan and Wendy is expected to stream exclusively via Disney+ anytime this year, so be sure to keep your radars open.
