Is she the right person to play a Native American princess? 

Critics on social media are less than happy about Wednesday's news that Rooney Mara has been cast as Tiger Lily in Pan, a live-action adaptation of the classic fairytale.

And they are taking to Twitter and other Internet sites to complain, according to The New York Daily News on Friday.

The outlet quoted one internet commenter as writing: 'Rooney Mara cast as Tiger Lily in new Peter Pan film because there are clearly no Native American actresses.'

It quoted another as crediting the 28-year-old with being an 'an incredibly gifted, insightful artist. But come on. You couldn't find a Native American actress to play Tiger Lily?!?!' 

Rooney is best known for playing pierced and eyebrow-less computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. chose the Bedford, New York-born beauty over Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o and Blue Is The Warmest Color's Adele Exarchopoulos.

The world being created is apparently very different to the classic Disney cartoon.

The film, due for release in July 2015, tells the origin story of Peter Pan, the mischievous boy who never grows up.

Tiger Lily is the princess of a tribe of Native Americans that live on the island of Neverland with Peter and the Lost Boys.

Hugh Jackman has been cast as Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund will portray Peter's arch-enemy Hook.

The main villain in this film is said to be Blackbeard despite Peter's long history with Captain Hook.

The title character has yet to be cast but will likely be a boy between 10 and 12 years old.

Joe Wright, who directed Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, will helm the fantasy film.

Peter Pan first appeared in Scottish author J.M. Barrie's book The Little White Bird, published in 1902. The character got his own novel in 1911.

Rooney was recently seen in Oscar award-winning film Her opposite Joaquin Phoenix.

The sister of Kate Mara also has a few films on tap including the sequel to 2011's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Transformative role: Rooney played eyebrow-less hacker Lisbeth Salander in 2011s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and is lined up to reprise her role in the sequel, The Girl That Played With Fire

Girl yes I was gonna post that exact same thing!!

Its ridiculous... There are plenty of native actors that could have been cast.

Its ok to whitewash, but not ok to turn white characters black. Ok then.

I'm still heated about the bs that was the hunger games casting...still haven't seen the whole movie.
