In the new Pan trailer, we get a more fleshed out look at this latest Peter Pan origin story, which involves Peter (played by newcomer Levi Miller) returning to Neverland as a messiah-like figure who is destined to lead a rebellion against the evil Blackbeard, played here with delicious abandon by Hugh Jackman. In this new Pan universe, which looks awesomely realized by director Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna), Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) is not a villain but a friend, and instead of Tinkerbell as Peter’s friend and champion, we have Rooney Mara playing the controversial forest princess, Tiger Lily.
There’s a lot of amazing visuals packed into this trailer, but the money shot comes at the end, when two Cara Delevingne-looking mermaids glance up at the camera from their underwater home. It’s worth the price of admission alone.
Pan soars into theaters on October 9.
