The runaway musical hit Come From Away put Newfoundland on the entertainment map. Now, the Rock is being transformed into Neverland this summer as Disney’s Peter Pan and Wendy swoops in for filming.
The province’s film development corporation says Disney chose the island of Newfoundland for its Neverland-like cliffs, seas and sweeping landscapes.
Filming will begin in August and include a cast and crew of about 150 people.
The live-action adventure-fantasy film is based on J. M. Barrie’s novel Peter and Wendy and stars Jude Law, Molly Parker and Jim Gaffigan, among others.
