Yara Shahidi took a musical path to discovering Neverland.
The actress is ready to play animation’s most iconic fairy, Tinker Bell, in Disney‘s upcoming live-action Peter Pan & Wendy. And with a purpose to get into the magical headspace, Yara centered on discovering the suitable tunes.
“I’ve these totally different Tinker Bell playlists,” she completely advised E! Information’ Daily Pop on July 22. “I am actually simply revving as much as a shoot day—me transferring round like I’ve pictured a fairy strikes. And it was a bit ridiculous, however you already know, when you see it on digicam, it appears to be like rather less ridiculous.”
However earlier than we see her Tinker Bell debut within the live-action Peter Pan retelling—which is ready to be launched later this year—viewers can meet up with the 22-year-old on Freeform’s Grown-ish.
Like Zoey Johnson, her character on the present, Yara is a current school grad herself, having received her diploma from Harvard again in Could. However in terms of how she and Zoey spent their time in school, the actress joked that their school experiences had been “polar opposites.”
