First PETER PAN Image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is Nightmare Fuel

Earlier this month we got a look at Girls star Allison Williams in costume and makeup as the titular character in NBC’s upcoming staging of Peter Pan (as I noted at the time that continues a long held stage tradition of having a female play the lead in this piece).  That was nice and pleasant.  But this new image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is downright creepy and unsettling.  Maybe it’s the way he’s posed with Williams (whose clothing ensemble looks odd when contrasted against the Walken monstrosity), but I definitely think this picture would feel less “wrong” if they were separated.  Right now it looks like one of those awkward, posed family photos you can take at Target.

Hit the jump to never sleep again.  The special airs on December 4th. In addition to Walken and Williams, Christian Borle will play the role of Smee as well as the role of Mr. Darling.

Earlier today at D23 in Anaheim, Disney revealed a number of details about their upcoming animated slate from both Pixar and DisneyToon Studios.  Included in the announcements was an animated film called The Pirate Fairy that will feature the voices of Christina Hendricks as a fairy and Tom Hiddleston as a young Captain Hook.  As you can imagine, when they announced the two of them providing voices and then walking out on stage, the crowd went nuts.

Shortly after the presentation I got to speak to Hiddleston backstage.   He talked about what the film’s story, getting to voice Captain Hook, what he collects, whether he has seen Thor: The Dark World and his thoughts on the footage, what it was like filming the sequel compared to the first one, and the experience of appearing in character as Loki at Comic-Con.  He also revealed that he wrote the Comic-Con dialogue himself and he didn’t want to introduce the trailer because “Loki doesn’t know what a trailer is.”  Hit the jump to watch.
