Disney is determined to give all of its animated classics the live-action treatment, and yet another version of Peter Pan is high on the House of Mouse's list of priorities.
David Lowery has been tasked with updating J.M. Barrie's classic tale of the boy who never grew up for a modern audience, and with any luck he'll do a better job of that than the folks behind 2015's Pan and 2003's Peter Pan.
Lowery enjoyed critical and commercial success with Pete's Dragon and is well respected in indie circles, having earned a Grand Jury Prize nomination at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for his original work Ain't Them Bodies Saints, so Pan is in good hands.
As things stand, only a director and a tentative 2018 release date have been announced for the return visit to Neverland, so Disney will need to get a move on if it hopes to bring it to cinemas this calendar year.
The studio is also hard at work on a live-action Mulan, also slated for 2018, and will debut Guy Ritchie's Aladdin next year.
