Pan Trailer: Watch Hugh Jackman In Stunning New Take On Peter Pan Origins
Pan has its first official trailer. Hugh Jackman plays Blackbeard the pirate. Garrett Hedlund is a young Hook. Rooney Mara appears as Tiger Lily. And little Levi Miller is Peter Pan, only he doesn’t know it yet.
This is not your father’s Peter Pan. It’s an origin story that offers a new take on the beginnings of the classic characters at the heart of the beloved J.M. Barrie story. According to the official plot summary, “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 trailer’s visuals look pretty spectacular. There’s a flying ship! Swords! Jackman’s scary facial hair! Plus, Cara Delevingne plays a mermaid! And Amanda Seyfried is there, too!
Of course, it’s going to be a busy period for fans of the Peter Pan story. The live musical version starring Allison Williams and Christopher Walken will air on NBC next week. Meanwhile, the movie opens on July 17. Are you looking forward to Pan? Check out the first trailer below, and tell us what you think!
