Warner Bros have officially released the first trailer for upcoming Peter Pan prequel, Pan.
Claiming to tell “the untold story of the timeless legend”, the movie offers a new take on the origin of the classic hero created by J.M. Barrie.
The story follows the adventure of a young orphan named Peter who is kidnapped and taken away to Neverland by a group of pirates captained by, not Hook, Blackbeard, played by Hugh Jackman.
On the adventure Peter meets up with a young Indiana Jones type named James Hook (interesting), Princess Tiger Lily and everyone’s favourite lackey Smee.
The last live action Peter Pan movie was released in 2003 to less than positive reviews so it will be interesting to see how this new story fairs, though it’s safe to say that having a couple of Oscar nominee’s on the cast list isn’t going to hurt.
The film is directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) and starring Hugh Jackman (“The Wolverine”,“Les Misérables”), Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter.
Pan is set for a worldwide release in 3D and 2D on July 17, 2015.
