Disney is seeking a young Kiwi actor to play Peter Pan in an upcoming live-action adaptation of the famous book.

The casting call, posted on the Catch Casting Facebook page, says they're looking for boys of any ethnicity to play a character aged 12-14.

"Peter is the undisputed ruler of Neverland, a magical land where pirates and mermaids and magic is the regular order of life. A magnificent and fearless swordsman and fighter who does constant battle with his old nemesis, Captain Hook, Peter is the leader of a group of perpetually youthful Lost Boys (and Girls)," the page says.

"Athletic boys, who perhaps have experience in gymnastics, fencing, taiaha, kapa haka, martial arts, etc a plus."

The shoot will be in Canada between April to August 2020, and the successful actor will be paid a daily rate.

All expenses will be covered by the production company, including the cost of a parent travelling for the shoot.
