Disney‘s live action adaptations of its classic animated features will continue with Peter Pan. The film will be directed by David Lowery, who already has one Disney adaptation to his credit with August’s Pete’s Dragon.
According to Deadline, Lowery will co-write the script with his Pete’s Dragon collaborator Toby Halbrooks. It is unclear if the film will retell the story as conceived in the 1953 animated film or strike out into a new direction as some of the recent live action films, like Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent.
Other projects in the pipeline include a Tim Burton version of Dumbo, a Mary Poppins sequel, and The Jungle Cruise among other films based on earlier Disney releases and theme park attractions. Besides Lowrey’s Pete’s Dragon, the studio will also release Alice Through the Looking Glass in May.
