Jude Law Surprises Children On The Cancer Ward At Great Ormond Street Hospital

Ahead of the World Premiere of Disney+ Original film Peter Pan & Wendy taking place in London on Thursday 20th April, beloved British actor Jude Law (Captain Hook) surprised patients, their families and staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), a place with deep connections to J.M. Barrie’s original story of Peter Pan.

Law visited children on the hospital’s cancer wards — named Lion, Elephant and Giraffe — delivering posters and bespoke activity packs. Patients across the hospital will be able to screen Peter Pan & Wendy from the 28th April and Disney have also gifted Funko Pops of Captain Hook for patients to enjoy.

A Disney+ Original movie, Peter Pan & Wendy is a live-action reimagining of the J.M. Barrie novel and the 1953 animated classic, directed by David Lowery (The Green Knight, Pete’s Dragon), which begins streaming 28th April, 2023 on Disney+.  

The film is of special significance to GOSH as J.M. Barrie, the man who created Peter Pan, gifted the rights of the play to the hospital in 1929. Over the years, this has helped to support the work of the hospital and has positively impacted the seriously ill children and their families who are treated there.
