Pan is a fantasy adventure directed by Joe Wright (Anna Karenina, Hanna). It is an original take on the origins of Peter Pan and Captain Hook. The film stars Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, and Amanda Seyfried.
Peter 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 and a new friend named James Hook, Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
Jackman had nothing but praise for his director Joe Wright, calling him a “true visionary, an adult who’s able to tap into a child’s mind and run wild, so audiences are going to see Neverland like they never have before.”
Pan is rated PG.
