we all know the story behind the character. The boy who would never grow up. Now this could be your, or your son’s chance to portray this iconic character.
If you wish to be that boy, then grab a parent, or guardian, and head over to Wembley Arena on Sunday, February 23, 2014 and wait your turn to shine. You need to be there between 9 and 11am to be in with a change.
There are some restrictions but they are quite simple and are listed below. The only thing that isn’t in the list, strangely, is the ethnicity of Peter. This is strange as in the past he has always been white and English [OK, sometimes Peter can be American but it’s close enough to English]
That’s not the only thing. If you read the character description, at the bottom of this post, you can see that there is no Captain Hook but Blackbeard is now his enemy. Played by the great Hugh Jackman.

The role of Peter is described as a courageous and adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble. The young actor cast in the role will join a cast that already includes Academy Award® nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as villainous Blackbeard. The all-new tale will be directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti and Paul Webster are the film’s producers.
“Pan” is set for a worldwide release beginning July 17, 2015 from Warner Bros. Pictures.`
