To celebrate the release of PAN (in cinemas Friday 16th October) Warner Bros. Pictures has teamed up with BlockWorks to create a unique PAN Minecraft experience. Players will be able to discover the world of PAN within two exclusive games, evoking the adventure of the film.

Players can log into the PAN server on Minecraft with the address maps.panmovie.net and will then discover two thrilling mini-games:

Pirate Ship Battle –  Two teams of players will battle in the skies above Neverland, attempting to destroy their opponents flying pirate ship.

Capture The Pan –  Explore the depths of Neverland while searching for the elusive Pan token, bringing it back to your base to score points for your team.
Full instructions and details can be found here – Game.PanMovie.net

From director Joe Wright (ATONEMENT, PRIDE & PREJUDICE) comes PAN a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.  Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly.  Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland.  There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land.  Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.

Wright directs PAN from a screenplay written by Jason Fuchs.  Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Oscar nominee Paul Webster (ATONEMENT) are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer.

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents, in association with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, a Berlanti Production, a Joe Wright film, PAN. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, it is set for a worldwide release in 2D and RealD 3D.

PAN is released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 16th October, with national previews on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th October.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
