HA NOI (VNS) — A team from US-based Warner Bros, has surveyed a cave at Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province to select scenes for the film Peter Pan.
The Provincial Department of Foreign Affairs announced that the crew of 10 spent three days discovering the UNESCO-recognised En (Swallow) Cave, one of the park’s resplendent spots, to find locations for the world-renowned fantasy-adventure film.
The team used aerial and remote-controlled cameras to calculate the shots which might be taken in the cave.
In these possible shots, the film’s protagonist Peter Pan will hover through the beautiful grotto and over magnificent mountain ranges and lush forests in the park.
Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, the UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, is situated in a 2,000sq.km limestone zone, some 500km south of Ha Noi. It is well-known for its cave and grotto systems, comprising more than 300 caves with a total length of over 70km.
Phong Nha holds several world cave records, as it boasts the longest underground river, as well as the largest caverns and passageways in the world.
Apart from the cave, the team is also planning to scour for locations in several other famed scenic spots in Quang Ninh and Ninh Binh provinces.
