Director Joe Wright (Hanna, Pride And Prejudice, Atonement) has promised fans a very different Peter Pan story, and from what we know thanks to the plot summary below, it definitely seems to be a fresh take on the early days of these characters.
Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
Pan also stars Amanda Seyfried as Mary Darling, Adeel Akhtar as Smee, Jack Charles as Chief Great Big Little Panther, Cara Delevingne as a mermaid, Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling, Lewis MacDougall as Nibs, Kathy Burke as Mother Barnabas, Na Tae-joo as Kwahu, Nonso Anozie as Bishop and Paul Kaye as Mutti Voosht. The film will hit theatres on October 9th.
