The highly anticipated trailer for Disney’s upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy has been released debuting Jude Law in the role of Captain Hook.

The live-action adaptation of the beloved 1953 film will follow Peter Pan, the boy who never ages, as he journeys to Neverland with his new friend Wendy to show her the endless fun it has to offer.

It will see Alexander Molony in the role of Peter, as well as Ever Anderson – the child of actress Milla Jovovich and director Paul WS Anderson – as Wendy.

It will be released on Disney Plus on April 28 to coincide with Disney’s 100-year anniversary celebrations.

And the latest trailer for the film gives fans their first exciting look at the film and its iconic characters in the flesh.

The trailer begins with Wendy looking at her hands while standing on the beach of Neverland as Captain Hook’s menacing voice can be heard overhead asking how she came to arrive in the magical place.

She goes on to search for Peter before running into The Lost Boys – and is shocked to see they’re not all boys.

The trailer then flashes back to Wendy with her brothers John and Michael – played by Joshua Pickering and Jacobi Jupe – as they are wowed by Peter’s magic when they first meet.

We also see the first shot of Tinkerbell played by Yara Shahidi, the first Black woman to take on the role.
