We’re only a few weeks out from the debut of Joe Wright’s fantasy adventure film, Pan, which reimagines the Peter Pan story in the early days of the boy’s arrival in Neverland. I’m very curious to see which direction this movie goes because it looks like it’ll be either a fun-filled, high-flying adventure or a beautifully produced trainwreck. Fingers crossed it will be the former. You can judge for yourself by watching this recent trailer.
To remind you about the film’s upcoming release date and its main protagonists, we have four new character posters to share with you today. They’re actually quite lovely and despite having character poses we’ve seen before, their palettes and detailed backdrops actually help to inform the characters and their place in the story. Make sure to click on each of them for high-definition looks. Starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund, Nonso Anozie, Cara Delevingne and Amanda Seyfried, Pan opens Stateside on October 9th.
Take a look at Oscar nominee Jackman as Blackbeard, Hedlund as James Hook, Oscar nominee Mara as Tiger Lily, and newcomer Miller as Peter in the new character posters for Pan below (via Fandango):
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
From director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.
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.
