It has been announced that stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan will play the role of Mr. Smee, the loyal but often unhelpful First Mate to Captain Hook. While Gaffigan is widely known for his comedy, The Wrap also notes that he has been recently seen in the films “Tesla,” “Troop Zero,” “American Dreamer” and “Light from Light.”

Other live action remakes heading to Disney+ in the coming years include Pinocchio starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto, as well as a prequel to Beauty and the Beast, which brings actors Luke Evans and Josh Gad back in the roles of Gaston and LeFou, respectively.
