As if we weren't already excited to see Allison Williams play Peter Pan in the upcoming live TV broadcast of the classic, Peter Pan Live!, we now have even more to look forward to: NBC has announced that Minnie Driver is joining the cast of the much-anticipated musical as grown-up Wendy.

According to NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, Driver will appear in the last scene of the movie when Peter returns to Wendy's home to find that she has grown up and now has a child of her own. Additionally, she will narrate the entire story.

"We're thrilled to have Minnie as part of this Peter Pan adventure," Greenblatt says. "She's a classy addition to our wonderful cast." Tune in to NBC on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 8 p.m. ET to catch Peter Pan Live!
