Variety reports that Lowery is co-writing the script alongside Toby Halbrooks, with Jim Whitaker set to produce. Beyond that, very few details are known about this particular adaptation, which will join a long list of Peter Pan-inspired films, but Deadline notes that the movie is expected to have a theatrical release, as opposed to heading directly to Disney+.

Sharing her appreciation on Instagram she captions :
