Yara Shahidi to Play First Black Tinker Bell in Disney’s “Peter Pan” Film

With a little Pixie Dust, Yara Shahidi lands a role in Peter Pan.

Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi keeps turning tables and breaking grounds in the entertainment industry as she officially gets the role of Tinker Bell in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan film.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Yara will join actors Jude Law (Captain Hook), Alexander Molony (Peter Pan), and Ever Anderson (Wendy) in the David Lowery-directed film.

She also becomes the first person of color to play the role of Tinker Bell on screen.

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 :

Thank you for all of the love. It, truly, means so much to me 💕🧚🏽‍♂️ I’m excited for this next adventure!
