Jump to: Spoilers (2)
The screenplay for this film was featured in the 2013 Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year.
Levi Miller won a drama award when he was 5 years old for playing Peter Pan. He loves the film Peter Pan (2003).
Garrett Hedlund was inspired by co-star Hugh Jackman while training with him for their action scenes. He said, "Hugh's amazing. He sets a standard for young males all over the place. He puts 110 percent into everything he does, including fitness. Hugh and I trained with this wonderful trainer named David Kingsbury. We got some gym sessions in together. It's a lot to keep up with, but it's wonderful to see someone who works out as hard as he does, it's inspiring."
To find the right actor to play Peter, the filmmakers looked at thousands of kids in the UK, the United States, Canada, and Australia before finding Levi Miller.
Many natural scenes in the film were from Son Doong Cave, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park and Ninh Bình in Vietnam. The captured scenes were then graphically edited into the film. (Wikipedia)
Lupita Nyong'o and Adèle Exarchopoulos were considered to play Tiger Lily.
In February 2016, Rooney Mara gave an interview to The (London) Telegraph in which she said that she (a white performer) regrets playing Tiger Lily (a Native American character) in Pan: "I really hate, hate, hate that I am on that side of the whitewashing conversation. I really do. I don't ever want to be on that side of it again. I can understand why people were upset and frustrated....Do I think all of the four main people in the film should have been white with blonde hair and blue eyes? No. I think there should have been some diversity somewhere."
As we see Blackbeard for the first time on screen, the whole digging community is singing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana
Javier Bardem was offered the role of Blackbeard.
This is Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried's second movie together. They previously starred in the musical drama Les Misérables (2012) as father and daughter, while in this film they are on opposite sides.
Dario Marianelli, a collaborator on Joe Wright's films and the Academy Award-winning composer of Atonement (2007) and V for Vendetta (2005), was Wright's original choice to compose the music for Pan (2015). However, a Warner Bros. executive may have found Marianelli's completed music unsatisfactory and inadequate and was dropped out of the production. Wright eventually replaced Marianelli with John Powell, who is best known for his universally acclaimed and Academy Award-nominated score for How to Train Your Dragon (2010).
Joe Wright has said that he is making this for his son Zubin.
Before Rooney Mara was cast in the role of Tiger Lily, Indian Bollywood actress Pooja Hegde was considered for the role.
Pan (2015) was originally scheduled for a July 24, 2015 release, but post-production issues and Joe Wright's change of composers maybe are the reasons the film's release was changed to October 9, 2015.
Joe Wright's parents ran a puppet theater, so he sees Pan as an opportunity to go back to the pure fantasy of his childhood.
Joe Wright came on board after the first draft was completed.
References to the Luftwaffe and air raids would seem to set this film in 1940-1941. The original play was actually first performed in 1906.
