'Peter Pan & Wendy' Movie Review

‘Peter Pan & Wendy’ sees David Lowery back in the Disney family. Pete’s Dragon’ director Lowery proves he can still bring layers to a Disney adventure, which features some great performances and emotional depth.

On Disney+ now, ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’ is the latest attempt by the studio to transform one of its animated classics into live action. And thankfully, despite being pushed straight to streaming, this reveals itself to be far better than the much-maligned ‘Pinocchio’ conversion job that (dis)graced screens last year, even that had Robert Zemeckis directing and Tom Hanks starring. And that’s largely thanks to director David Lowery, who finds a lyrical, visually lush approach and ups the emotional ante to give the story more meaning.
