Plot Summary
Peter (Levi Miller) is a 12-year-old boy left as a baby by his mother Mary (Amanda Seyfried), and brought up by Mother Barnabas (Kathy Burke), head of an orphanage in London. During World War II, Peter finds out Mother Barnabas is hoarding food for herself, and joins hands with friend Nibs (Lewis MacDougall) to steal the food and distribute among other orphans. However, the duo get caught by pirates hired by Barnabas, and are sent off to Neverland in a pirate ship. While Nibs manages to jump off the ship and escape, Peter can't, and ends up being shipped to the magical world. This is where Peter finds both friends and enemies, and ultimately discovers his destiny to become the saviour of Neverland, Peter Pan. He, along with Hook (Garrett Hedlund), then set out on a mission to rescue Nibs and the other orphans from Barnabas' orphanage, who eventually join Pater's crew named "The Lost Boys".
Trivia
The film serves as an origin story for Peter Pan and Captain Hook.

Hollywood actresses Lupita Nyong'o and Adèle Exarchopoulos, and Bollywood actress Pooja Hegde were also considered for the role of Tiger Lily, which eventually went to Rooney Mara.

Rooney Mara's casting as Tiger Lily caused controversy due to her European ancestry, as Tiger Lily is traditionally portrayed as a Native American.

Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried previously worked together in Les Misèrables (2012) as father and daughter respectively.

The Guardian|Review by Jordan Hoffman
A starry cast, including Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara and Cara Delevingne, can’t save Joe Wright’s dull, dreadful, unasked for prequel to JM Barrie’s children’s classic

On the occasion of the arrival of a lumbering load of steampunk-drenched, whimsy-drained wrongheadedness disguised as family entertainment known as “Pan”—someone is really baiting headline writers with that pun-ready title—let us ponder this conundrum: Why do filmmakers continue to feel the need to squeeze all the joy and magic out of such a remarkably enduring figure of Edwardian-era make-believe as J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan?

This joyless, juiceless take on the Peter Pan story is a theme-park ride from hell

Wright stages some very colourful set-pieces, but the film-making never takes wing. It doesn’t help that the performances are as broad as any you will find in a pantomime at the Hackney Empire.
