Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily in the upcoming Pan perpetuates stereotypes, underrepresentation of Native Americans


“On March 12, announced that actress Rooney Mara has been cast as Tiger Lily from the Peter Pan story in Joe Wright’s retelling called Panset by Warner Bros. to come out July 2015.
                The trouble is that Tiger Lily is explicitly stated in the novel and play as being a Native American. Rooney Mara is clearly white and pale-skinned. As far as sources such as FlavorwireImdb, and Entertainment Weekly can tell, there has been no change to Tiger Lily’s identity as Native American.
