Well, let's cue up the controversy machine. Tiger Lily, the Native American princess of Neverland, is going to be played by someone not of Native American descent (nor from Neverland). We're being a bit cheeky, but we're sure this news is going to raise a few culturally-concerned eyebrows.

Tiger Lily Rooney Mara

Well, let's cue up the controversy machine. Tiger Lily, the Native American princess of Neverland, is going to be played by someone not of Native American descent (nor from Neverland). We're being a bit cheeky, but we're sure this news is going to raise a few culturally-concerned eyebrows.

Rooney Mara has nabbed the part of Tiger Lily in Joe Wright's forthcoming "Pan." The 3D movie already has Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garett Hedlund as Captain Hook, and features a Black List script by Jason Fuchs ("Ice Age: Continental Drift") that is a a prequel to J.M. Barrie’s novel. It follows an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes a hero to the natives and leads a revolt against the evil pirates.

While The Wrap stresses that Wright is planning a "very international and multi-racial" movie, this casting sorta flies in the face of that whole idea. But hey, there's still more to come as the movie gears up to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
