Filming on Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan prequel, Pan, begins in a few days, and now the production has rounded out the cast. The film “tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds great adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan.” New additions to the film include Amanda Seyfried as Mary; Jack Charles (Mystery Road) as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father; Taejoo Na (The Kick) as Kwahu; Nonso Anozie (Ender’s Game) as Bishop; Kathy Burke (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as Mother Barnabas; Kurt Egyiawan (Skyfall) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall (In the Name of the Children) as Nibs; and newcomer Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling.
These actors will join the already announced cast members—Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (TRON Legacy) as Hook; Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (The Dictator) as Smee; and Levi Miller as Peter. With so many characters, I’m not sure how closely Wright’s version will resemble the Peter Pan we all know, but knowing Wright, I’m sure it will at least be a visual feast. Hit the jump for the press release. Pan opens July 17, 2015.
