In the summer of 2021, St. John’s, Newfoundland underwent a transformation into Neverland. This came to light after we received a tip from Chris K., revealing that some scenes of Disney’s “Peter Pan & Wendy” were filmed on location in St. John’s. The movie is a live-action fantasy adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s novel “Peter and Wendy” and boasts a star-studded cast including Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell, Jude Law as Captain Hook, as well as Molly Parker and Jim Gaffigan.
It’s official! The magic of Disney is coming to Newfoundland and Labrador as Walt Disney Pictures prepares to film the highly anticipated live-action Peter Pan & Wendy movie in our province. This is an exciting moment for all Disney fans, film enthusiasts, and residents of Newfoundland and Labrador alike.
With its stunning landscapes and picturesque communities, our province provides the perfect backdrop for this epic production. From rugged coastlines to enchanting forests, the natural beauty of our region is sure to be showcased in all its glory in this magical movie.
The fact that Walt Disney Pictures chose Bonavista, Faroe Islands, Vancouver, Newfoundland and Labrador as filming locations is a testament to the growing reputation of our province in the film industry. This project is yet another affirmation of our thriving entertainment industry and its potential to contribute to their local economies.
