Peter Pan and a young Captain Hook team up in the first trailer for “Pan,” in which Hugh Jackman plays Neverland pirate Blackbeard.

The first full-length preview for the Warner Bros. release also shows Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) in action as Indian princess Tiger Lily, as well as rising star Cara Delevingne as a mermaid.

The latest incarnation of a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie is an origin story about the titular orphan (Levi Miller) sailing away to a magical land we’re all familiar with, where an ancient prophecy states a boy who can fly will lead an uprising against the oppressive pirate who ruled before Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) takes over.

Joe Wright (“Atonement”) directed the fantasy film from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”). “Pan” hits theaters on Oct. 9.
