Photos from the set of Disney’s live-acton movie Peter Pan and Wendy offer the first look at Jude Law as Captain Hook.
Posted by The Daily Mail, the photos show Law in costume on the film’s set in Vancouver. In addition to having long brown hair and a thick mustache to match, Law can be seen sporting appropriately pirate-y attire in the form of a red waistcoat and black boots, along with a face shield per the movie’s coronavirus (COVID-19) health and safety protocols. He also appears to be keeping the character’s iconic hook hand out of sight by tucking his right hand away while he talks to a crew member.
Law is the latest big-name to bring Peter Pan’s notorious pirate villain to life in live-action. Other actors who’ve tackled the role include Jason Isaacs in the 2003 Peter Pan movie adaptation and Dustin Hoffman in 1991’s Hook, Steven Spielberg’s quasi-sequel about a grown-up Peter Pan returning to Neverland. Garrett Hedlund also played a young James Hook in Joe Wright’s 2015 film Pan, an expensive prequel movie to J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan stories that infamously bombed at the box office and received mostly negative reviews.
Peter Pan and Wendy is a live-action re-imagining of Disney’s 1953 animated film Peter Pan, as well as the latest addition to Disney’s growing collection of live-action reboots of its animated classics. The movie is being directed by David Lowery, who previously helmed the studio’s well-received remake of Pete’s Dragon.
Based on J. M. Barrie’s novel Peter and Wendy and inspired by the 1953 animated classic, Peter Pan & Wendy is the timeless tale of a young girl who, defying her parents’ wishes to attend boarding school, travels with her two younger brothers to the magical Neverland. There, she meets a boy who refuses to grow up, a tiny fairy and an evil pirate captain, and they soon find themselves on a thrilling and dangerous adventure far, far away from their family and the comforts of home.
Directed by David Lowery, Peter Pan & Wendy stars Alexander Molony as Peter Pan, Ever Anderson as Wendy Darling, Jude Law as Captain Hook, Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell, Jim Gaffigan as Smee, Alan Tudyk as Mr. Darling, Molly Parker as Ms. Darling, Joshua Pickering as John Darling, Jacobi Jupe as Micahel Darling and Alyssa Wapanatâhk as Tiger Lily. The film will premiere on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
