Warner Bros. Pictures released a stunning new “Pan,” trailer, showing more of the highly-detailed world that the ‘Peter Pan’ feature will offer to moviegoers later this year.

The film is directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) and will be new adaptation on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barri. The story of Pan follows the story of an orphan who is taken 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.

The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; Adeel Akhtar (“The Dictator”) as Smee; and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter.

Rounding out the cast are Taejoo Na (“The Kick”) as Kwahu; Nonso Anozie (“Son of God,” “Atonement”) as Bishop; Kathy Burke (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) as Mother Barnabas; Kurt Egyiawan (“Skyfall”) as Murray; Lewis MacDougall (UK TV’s “In the Name of the Children”) as Nibs; newcomer Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling; Jack Charles (“Mystery Road”) as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father; and Amanda Seyfried (“Les Misérables”) as Mary.

Wright directs “Pan” from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Paul Webster are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer.

Filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, “Pan,” is set for a worldwide release in 3D and 2D in select theatres and IMAX® on October 9, 2015.
