"I'm going to tell you a story about a boy who would never grow up, about the pirate who wished to catch him, about the island where fairies roamed. But this isn't the story you've heard before because sometimes friends begins as enemies and enemies begin as friends. Sometimes to truly understand how things ends, we must first know how they begin."

Peter (Levi Miller) 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 (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.



Have you every wandered about the origins of Peter Pan and Captain Hook?  If so, Pan is a delightful retelling of the original Peter Pan story by Barrie.  Pan is a creative adaptation on how the legendary character went from being a London orphan to the Boy Who Could Fly.

You learn very early in the movie how Peter (played by the first-time actor Levi Miller) became an orphan.  Pan’s finest action sequence is a battle between the orphan snatching Neverland pirates and the boys above the London rooftops.  Ultimately, young peter is kidnapped from the orphanage and taken to Neverland to work as a pirate for Blackbeard’s (played by Hugh Jackman) mining operation of fairy dust.

My family thoroughly enjoyed the intense sword fights, explosions, and the menacing crocodiles that existed throughout the fantasy world of Neverland.  Although Pan was intertwined with many non-stop actions scenes Pan still was able to develop a romance between Hook and Tiger Lilly. 

Throughout Pan you could see the ideals of teamwork and friendship being a point of emphasis.  It was a pleasure watching a movie that has a strong message, for kids of all ages; believe in yourself and your capable of greatness. 

This is an amazing movie and a must have to add your to collection.   Be warned a few tears were shed by my daughter, but she seems to get emotional at all Peter Pan adaptations.
