 Pan is a new take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale, an origin story that follows an orphan named Peter who is captured by pirates and brought to the magical world of Neverland, where he discovers he’s the son of a fairy prince and a slave girl and that he’s destined to save the island’s natives from Blackbeard. James Hook, is a fellow orphan who was brought to Neverland as a boy and has been working as a slave there for years, dreaming of an escape. He initially plans to use Peter as his ticket back to Earth, but ultimately he grows to care for the boy and stays to fight alongside the natives against Blackbeard. Hook loses his right hand in battle but wins the heart of native princess Tiger Lily in the process. Classic sidekick Smee will be depicted as a mining slave who is Hook’s longtime friend and confidante, though he ultimately betrays him and Peter by selling out the natives’ secrets and joining forces with Blackbeard.
