There's just a week to go until Pan flies into cinemas and it is set to be one of the 'not to miss' family film events of the autumn as Joe Wright returns to the director's chair.



I have always been a big fan of the story of Peter Pan and Pan is a new take on the tale by J.M. Barrie and will be the first film for Wright since period drama Anna Karenina back in 2012.

Wright has assembled a terrific cast list as we are going to see Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and Rooney Mara take on the roles of Blackbeard, Hook, and Tiger Lily. We are also going to be introduced to the acting talents of Levi Miller, who is set to take on the title role in the film.

And it is Miller and Jackman who take centre stage in these two great new clips from the film:

Pan is the biggest film and role of Miller's career to date and he is a young star that we really need to keep an eye on over the next few years. Nonso Anozie, Amanda Seyfried, Kathy Burke, and Cara Delevingne complete and impressive live up.

Peter 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 and a new friend named James Hook, Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard to save Neverland and discover his true destiny... to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.

Pan is a movie that I have been looking forward to all year as I cannot wait to see Wright put his own stamp on a story that we all know so well. Not only am I excited for Wright's return to the director's chair, but I am looking forward to seeing Jackman take on a wonderfully villainous role.

Pan is released 16th October.
