History is Made by Peter Pan and Wendy
Disney created history with Peter Pan & Wendy before it ever hit theatres by casting a Down syndrome actor in the movie. Down syndrome sufferer Noah Matthews Matofsky will play the character Slightly in the movie.
The casting director of Peter Pan & Wendy said that it wasn't intended to hire an actor with the chromosomal condition for the part of Slightly in the movie. “I can tell that while filmmaker David Lowery requested us to look for children to play the Lost Boys and Girls with a focus on performers with disabilities, the part was not created for a Down syndrome actor. The leading candidate for Slightly, according to casting director Debra Zane, was Noah among those who auditioned.
