Hollywood is short of originality these days and must therefore rehash old ideas or think of new ways to bring back beloved characters. Warner Bros reveal the first trailer for their take on the much loved children’s tale, Peter Pan.
Simply entitled Pan, this story reveals how Peter Pan came to be. The story features an very different Hugh Jackman as Captain Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund as a pre-pirate Hook. He still has both his hands.
Trivia: Hugh Jackman shaved his head and shaped his beard for this role and went out for a walk during filming. No one recognised him!
Pan opens in the US and the UK on July 17th 2015.
Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
