Warner Bros. has released the first Pan trailer for director Joe Wright’s (Hanna) reimagining of the classic J.M. Barrie story Peter Pan.  The film finds newcomer Levi Miller’s young Pan, along with other young wartime orphans, being kidnapped by the men of the dreaded pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), thus beginning a series of adventures in Neverland that shape the boy into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan.  I think Wright is a talented director, but it looks like he made a prequel to Hook. I couldn’t help but laugh at the part in the trailer when kids from the Oliver Twist Home for Orphan Boys are abducted onto a flying ship.  “What happened to Peter?”  “He was kidnapped by Cirque du Soleil.”

The film also stars Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Amanda Seyfried as Mary, as well as Adeel Akhtar, Jack Charles, Taejoo Na, Nonso Anozie, Kathy Burke, Kurt Egyiawan, Lewis Macdougall, and Leni Zieglmeier.  Pan opens in theaters on July 17, 2015.
