Adventure abounds in the new trailer with swashbuckling pirates, mermaids, daring escapes, and fairies. “Tick-tock” sounds the Warner Bros. Picutres’ logo before opening onto a boys’ orphanage in London.
It is here that we learn about Peter, a boy whose mother left him a note telling him that he is extrodinary beyond his imagination before she promises to explain everything to him when they meet again, either in this world or another.
Next thing you know, the boys are being snatched out of their beds and whisked off to Neverland to join the ranks of Blackbeard, a pretty evil looking pirate who no doubt has sinister intentions.
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes, “Pan,” a live-action Peter Pan feature directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”).
Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (“The Dictator”) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter.
Rounding out the cast are Taejoo Na (“The Kick”) as Kwahu; Nonso Anozie (“Son of God,” “Atonement”) as Bishop; Kathy Burke (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) as Mother Barnabas; Kurt Egyiawan (“Skyfall”) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall (UK TV’s “In the Name of the Children”) as Nibs; newcomer Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling; Jack Charles (“Mystery Road”) as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father; and Amanda Seyfried (“Les Misérables”) as Mary.
Wright directs “Pan” from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Paul Webster are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer.
Filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, “Pan,” is set for a worldwide release in 3D and 2D in select theatres and IMAX® on July 17, 2015.
