Slated for release in summer 2015, the film promises a whole new adventure and will focus on an orphaned boy who from London who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. Despite having being transported to a magical land, the boy must deal with the threat of the movie's main baddie, Blackbeard, who will undoubtedly be played with vigour by the theatrical Jackson. Described by THR as "a boy between 10 and 12 years old," the orphan's role is still to be cast.

English film director Wright is known for Atonement, Anna Karenina, Hanna and Pride & Prejudice therefore his take on the legend of the character who first appeared in a 1902 novel is in assuredly good hands. There have been five movie re-tellings of the 1904 tale Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, including Disney's memorable 1953 animated take.

In an attempt to diversify from the numerous other versions of Peter Pan, fans have been told to expect a very different take on the story with an international cast. Pan will be released on the 17th July 2015.
