The tale of Peter Pan is one that has been beloved for generations. Disney+ is reimagining this story with a diverse cast and storyline in the upcoming film Peter Pan & Wendy.

EBONY correspondent Jenn Rodriguez speaks with Yara Shahidi—who plays the iconic fairy Tinkerbell— about the new Disney+ movie Peter Pan & Wendy and what the essence of the film means to her.

"It represents more than an anomaly and a random chance act but truly a change and to consider what our fairy tales and fantasies look like. Yes, many serious stories need diversity and inclusion but there is something about targeting kids programming and norms because so many kids need to know they have the right to dream so big," shared Shahidi.
