Forget what you know about Peter Pan (aka “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up”) because Warner Bros. with their prequel Pan is going to make some changes. His devil-may-care attitude will certainly remain though as director Joe Wright tracks his beginnings as a rebellious orphan to his leading of the tribes of Neverland. Seemingly new is a possible friendship of sorts with mortal enemy Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) which one can assume will go sour by the end of the film. Perhaps in some form of doublecross as both appear to do battle with the notorious pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). It’s all fantastical and . . . hammy. It’s too early to tell whether the over exaggeration is a good thing, but you can get a peek from the trailer above courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures.
Pan stars Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar, Levi Miller and Kathy Burke.
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes, Pan, a live-action Peter Pan feature directed by Joe Wright.
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.
Pan flitters about in US theaters on October 9, 2015 and UK theaters on October 16, 2015.

I like what Disney did with Maleficent so I’ll give Warner Bros. a chance with Peter Pan.

Looks like a farce

Let me tell you that I’m very puzzled by this new prequel. One more time the original story will be manhandled ! It’s a shame to see that all those Hollywood productions always present such characters as Hook or even Maleficent – who are pure evil characters – with a gentle background. Furthermore, novels have been created like “Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth” to relate a plausible prequel for the story of the famous captain. Fairytales were created to show children that evil does exist in this world ! Not every evil character can be explained with a difficult childhood – ENOUGH is ENOUGH !
