Peter Pan & Wendy
Jude Law is playing Captain Hook. Do we really need to say anything more? This live action Disney adaptation - starring Alexander Molony as Peter, Ever Anderson as Wendy and Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell - promises to be a real treat, bringing J. M. Barrie's classic story to life once again.
White Bird : A Wonder Story
R. J. Palacio's classic story Wonder has already been turned into a movie - now it's the turn of White Bird! We join Julian (the character from Wonder) as his grandmother shares stories from her time as a young Jewish girl living in Nazi-occupied France. It stars Gillian Anderson and Helen Mirren - what a cast.
There are apparently two Pinocchio movies coming our way in 2022! One is a live action film from Disney, starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto (we're instantly sold). Other stars involved include Luke Evans, Cynthia Erivo and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is providing the voice of Jiminy Cricket.
We're also due to get a stop-motion animated version from director Guillermo del Toro, with voices from the likes of Ewan McGregor, Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett and Christoph Waltz. But we expect this version to be a bit darker than Disney's...
Lyle, Lyle Crocodile
Based on a 1960s story by Bernard Waber, we think this is going to be such a cute animation! It's all about a crocodile called Lyle who lives in a house in New York and enjoys spending time with his neighbours - until one of them insists he belongs in a zoo. Can Lyle prove he's not as bad as people might think? The cast includes Javier Bardem and Constance Wu (incredible).
