Yara Shahidi is preparing to take flight in an upcoming Disney live-action film.

Best known for the television series “Black-ish” and “Grown-ish,” Shahidi has been tapped to play Tinkerbell in “Peter Pan and Wendy,” Disney’s upcoming live-action version of “Peter Pan,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She will join Jude Law (the “Sherlock Holmes” and “Fantastic Beasts” series), who will play Captain Hook; Alexander Molony (the British TV series “The Reluctant Landlord,” who has been cast as Peter; and Ever Anderson (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” the upcoming “Black Widow”), who will star as Wendy.

David Lowery, who previously helmed the 2016 live-action take on “Pete’s Dragon,” will return to the Mouse House to direct “Peter Pan and Wendy.” He co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks, who also collaborated with him on “Pete’s Dragon.”

The new live-action version of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of the boy who refuses to grow up and recruits three London siblings to fly away with him on a magical adventure to Neverland will be based on Disney’s 1953 animated film.
