Back in April, the world learned that Cara Delevingne was to star in Joe Wright’s 2015 adaptation of Peter Pan, tentatively (and aptly) titled Pan. We then boldly predicted that the internet’s favorite multihyphenate was going to play Tinkerbell—which, as we found out today, was wrong. Instead, according to an Instagram shot Delevingne posted on the film’s set, it looks like she’ll be playing the small (yet significant!) role of a mermaid.
If you remember, the mermaids are friends of Peter Pan’s who, like Tinkerbell, can’t stand vying with other female characters for his attention. Reads DisneyWiki: “The mermaids as a whole appear fun-loving, and do not seem to have real cares or troubles besides Captain Hook.” A fitting casting choice, then.
