Pan trailer

Perhaps the first images from Pan weren’t quite what you expected, but we’re trusting in the guy who created a successful new fairy tale in Hanna to warp the Peter Pan story into a new shape that makes sense in the end. This Pan trailer shows a big, bright, and possibly strange take on the J.M. Barrie stories, seemingly with a story structure that doesn’t bother with a “Peter Pan in the real world” setup, but just goes straight for a fantasy tale. There’s a lot of light, pretty stuff here that positions this as a fluffy fantasy, but then there’s a shot of Hugh Jackman towards the end of the trailer that makes us wonder if this has something more dark in mind, too.

Joe Wright directs Levi Miller as Peter, and Jackman not as Hook, but as Blackbeard. Garrett Hedlund steps in as a young, romantically appealing version of Hook, with Rooney Mara playing Tiger Lily. Check out the Pan trailer below. (We’ve also got four Pan character posters, with Blackbeard’s showing that yes, that’s definitely meant to be a bad wig worn by the pirate.)

The hero is still a little boy named Peter Pan, though, played by Levi Miller. Hit the jump to see the first Pan images featuring Jackman and Miller, plus the first Pan poster with Miller. Read More »

Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan origin story Pan has a few very recognizable cast members. Hugh Jackman will play Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund will be Hook, and Rooney Mara is in talks to play Tiger Lily. But for Peter, Wright and his producers are looking at younger, new talent. And so Levi Miller, whose most recognizable role at this point is probably an appearance on Terra Nova, has been chosen as the new young Peter. Read More »
