Have you been waiting on the trailer for “Pan,” particularly after hearing that it was going to be a new take on a classic story of Peter Pan? The trailer for the film is finally released and now everyone can see just what they can anticipate from this revisionist look at the tale by J.M. Barrie.

“Pan” is directed by Joe Wright and stars newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan, “an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland,” as the official description states. “There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny–to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.”

Starring with Miller is a whole host of actors and actresses playing unexpected parts. Here’s the official rundown:

“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…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.”

The screenplay is by Jason Fuchs, with Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter producing. Tim Lewis serves as executive producer.

“Pan” will come to theaters July 17, 2015 in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX. Will you see this film? Give your opinions in the comments section below.
