Joe Wright's Mental Gymnastics for Tiger Lily Casting



-She's an empowering role model to little girls. “Tiger Lily is the bad-ass warrior who is far more pro-active physically in defeating Blackbeard than any of the boys. She has all the action sequences."

-"[Mara has] a regal quality and also she’s a little bit frightening — you really wouldn’t mess with Rooney.”

-But don't worry! Lots of minorities make up her tribe as they fight Blackbeard's colonialsm! Wright cast dozens of black, Indian, Korean and other nationalities to make up Tiger Lily’s tribe in Neverland. “I liked the idea they were indigenous people who were fighting against the colonialist rule of Blackbeard."

-“I can understand how it appears from an outside perspective. But when people see the film, they get it.”
