Yara Shahidi to Play Tinker Bell in Disney's 'Peter Pan' Live-Action Remake!

Disney is making a live-action remake of Peter Pan and the role of Tinker Bell will be played by Yara Shahidi!

Peter Pan and Wendy is the title of the upcoming movie being made at Disney and it will be given a theatrical release, according to Deadline.

Jude Law is set to play Captain Hook with newcomers Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson (who is Milla Jovovich‘s daughter) taking on the title roles.

This marks the first time that a person of color will be playing the role of Tinker Bell and we think Yara is such a great choice! She is best known for her role as Zoey on Black-ish and the spinoff series Grown-ish. She also starred in the recent YA movie The Sun Is Also a Star.

David Lowery, who directed Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake, will be directing the film from a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks.

During her appearance on The Tonight Show the night before, Yara opened up about the longest prank she ever pulled.

“I was trying to figure out something that would last long [to pull on my brother Sayeed], so one time I was on a walk with my brother and he saw a wood chip that looked like a mouse, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a collageon, Sayeed,’” she shared. “I just made up a word. I was like, ‘It’s something that falls from the sky that looks like an animal.’ ‘Cause I was like, the more specific you can get, the better.”

Yara adds that “for two years, he swore this was like a really fancy art term. And we also went to a decently small school, so I was the cool sixth grader who got all of the fourth graders to believe that this was a word.”

“I was well into middle school when they realized [it wasn't true],” she explained. “I was in the car with him and I was like, ‘Remember when you believed in the word collageon?’ And I didn’t realize that he still believed in it to that day, and I gave myself away.”

See her appearance below!

FYI: Yara wore a floral Richard Quinn coat with Malone Souliers shoes.

There’s something so innocent, na├»ve, and sincere about it that really corresponds to Juliet.”
