PAN Comic-Con Panel Recap: The Peter Pan Origin Film Takes Flight in Hall H

     July 11, 2015


From the first images and trailer alone, Joe Wright’s Pan seems like a wondrous and highly theatrical take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of the flying boy who goes to Neverland. It’s been awhile since a new adaptation of this tale has hit the multiplexes, and director Wright has a knack for taking old stories and giving them a great, visually alluring revival, including his recent Anna Karenina. At the 2015 Comic-Con panel, Wright, along with Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and Peter Pan himself Levi Miller, talked with moderator Aisha Tyler about how the director’s vision for the film was totally fresh and revitalizing, the use of practical sets and models, and how the tone of Barrie’s original informed Wright’s approach to the characters of Pan, Blackbeard, Tiger Lilly, and a young Hook.
