New ‘Pan’ Character Posters Look Exactly How You’d Expect
After the previous promotional images and trailers for Joe Wright’s slightly-delayed Pan movie, you probably don’t even need to see these new character posters to have an idea of what they’d look like. But here they are anyway, in all their vibrant, well-lit and detailed glory. And wouldn’t you know it, but Hugh Jackman is still rocking that sick cartoon villain mustache.
The new posters debuted over at Fandango, and feature Levi Miller’s young Peter Pan, Rooney Mara’s Tiger Lily, Hugh Jackman’s Blackbeard, and Garrett Hedlund’s young-ish Hook (pre-Captain fascism). Mara’s part has been the source of some mild controversy and eyebrow-raising, as her character was originally Native American in the J.M. Barrie books and in Disney’s animated adaptation.
Pan was pushed back from its original release date and now hits theaters in October, which might account for the lull in marketing for the film. We’ve seen a couple of trailers, but since the date-change Warner Bros. has kept things a little quiet. That may change in the next month.
From director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.
Peter (Levi Miller) 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 (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
Pan also stars Amanda Seyfried and Cara Delevingne, and arrives on October 9.
