Having watched various versions of “Peter Pan” in the past, we’ve always wondered about the real story behind his immortality in Neverland. Is he a vampire? Does Neverland even exists? Who’s Peter Pan?
Well, Warner Bros. Pictures might be able to answer all your questions in its upcoming feature film, “Pan”.
That’s right, the young man in the poster above is Peter Pan, who will be played by Hollywood newcomer Levi Miller.
Directed by Joe Wright (of “Atonement” and “Pride & Prejudice” fame), “Pan” is a live-action Peter Pan feature film that will offer a new take on the origin of the classic characters including Black Beards, Hook, Tiger Lily, Smee, and Peter himself. The film follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland.
What he didn’t know was the fact he will never want to go back to real world ever again as he will eventually to be a hero forever known as Peter Pan. Peter Pan’s origin will be retold in his misadventure in “Pan”, with Rooney Mara portraying Tiger Lily, Garrett Hedlund playing a young Hook (who still has 2 hands), and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard.
