VIDEO: Creating the 3D for new movie Pan

Pan is a new take on the story of Peter Pan from director Joe Wright and Neverland let them run wild with ideas for 3D

Pan looks like a bit of a visual masterpiece, which isn't that surprising from Joe Wright - the man behind Anna Karenina, Pride and Prejudice and Atonement. His new movie is set in a world of fantasy, with Neverland giving him the scope to do pretty much anything when it comes to the visuals.

And that freedom also applies to the use of 3D in the film, with acclaimed sterographer Chris Parks (Gravity, Edge of Tomorrow) working closely with Wright to push that extra dimension as much as possible. This led to layered sets, epic action and fantastical adventure, with a view to really drawing the audience into the world of Neverland.

Hear what Parks and Wright had to say about the use of 3D in Pan below, with some comments from Blackbeard himself Hugh Jackman.

Eveyone seems most enthused about the potential of 3D for the new movie, even young Aussie Levi Miller who plays Peter. The film tells the story of what happened before the tale we know, when Peter first found himself in Neverland, far from his home in England.

Pan is in cinemas on the 16th of October 2015.
