'Peter Pan Live' NBC December 2014 Starring Allison Williams & Christopher Walken Release First Promo Tailer, Watch Here (VIDEO)
Peter Pan Live coming to NBC has released their first promo trailer including their star actors Christopher Walken and Allison Williams. You can check out the short behind the scenes footage above.
Peter Pan Live is set to air on NBC on December 4th.
Allison Williams was announced earlier this Summer to play the lead role as Peter Pan in NBC's Peter Pan Live this December and now we get to see our first look.
Williams stopped by the "Today" show on Wednesday and shared about her upcoming role as Peter Pan, even being willing to cut her hair for the role.
"I sort of very tentatively offered to cut my hair, I was like, 'You know, if it's a thing that would help I could cut my hair,' and they were like, 'You're welcome to do that, we're still gonna put you in a wig.'"
Executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron called Williams a "major find" for the special. "She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities," Zadan and Meron said last month.
The casting choice was a surprise to many, as Williams is best known for playing, Marnie, on the HBO show "Girls".
NBC chief Robert Greenblatt said: "We couldn't be happier that Allison Williams is our Peter Pan. She's a lovely rising star on the award-winning show Girls-where she occasionally shows off her incredible vocal talent-and we think she will bring the perfect blend of 'boyish' vulnerability and bravado to save the day against Christopher Walken's powerful Captain Hook."
The Peter Pan cast announced earlier this year that Christopher Walken as Captain Hook and now maybe Brian Williams, Allison's father, would make a cameo during the NBC production.
Peter Pan Live is based on the original 1954 Broadway musical which includes songs such as "I'm Flying," "I Won't Grow Up," and "Ugg-a-Wugg". NBC is following up on its very successful 2013 telecast of The Sound of Music Live with Carrie Underwood, which brought in 18.6 million viewers last December.
There are still many roles to cast for the live production, including Wendy Darling (and her brothers John and Michael), Tiger Lily, Smee, and everyone's favorite human-in-a-dog-suit, Nana.
