The classic tale of 'Peter Pan' continues in Disney's sequel 'Return to Never Land'. In 1940 on a world besieged by World War II, Wendy, now grown up, has two children, one of them is her daughter, Jane. She wears her trench coat during the air raid, and later that night, Wendy tries to give her own children hope by telling them of her magical experiences with Peter Pan in Never Land. However, Jane, Wendy's daughter, sees it all as make believe and refuses to believe in the tales. That is, until the villainous Captain Hook mistakes her for Wendy and abducts her to Never Land in an attempt to lure and capture Peter Pan. Peter Pan's quest to return Jane safely home is jeopardized until she can begin to believe in the magic of imagination. Written by
Because most of the original Peter Pan (1953) voice cast of the movie had died, including Hans Conried (Hook) and Bobby Driscoll (Peter Pan), an entirely new cast of actors had to be used to film this sequel. Among them is prolific and versatile actor, Corey Burton, who was not only a big fan and admirer of Hans Conried, but also a student of his. Burton does a dead-on impression of Conried and as he himself says, gives the illusion that Conried is present. See more »
Wendy's husband leaves to fight in WWII as the Battle of Britain is beginning. This occurred in 1940, prior to US active participation in the war, but the military truck he leaves home in has the "circled star" roundel of the United States Army rather than the "bullseye" roundel of the UK or the "crowned lion" logo of the British Army.

You promised no one would get hurt. You gave your word.
And Captain Hook always keeps his word. I promised I would not harm a hair on Peter Pan's head.
[Plucks a hair from Peter's head]
And this is the one I won't harm. Here, you keep it.
[Gives it to Jane]
The rest of him is mine.

After 50 years you would think they could come up with a better sequel. One could come up with something better in 15 min. and do a much better job. Disney must be desperate to release this picture and at best this is a direct to video type of item, and is not suitable as a theatrical release. But fear not, your children will probably enjoy this "movie" however adults will be shocked at this trash that Disney has chosen to inflict upon the general public. What happened to all the truly talented people who work at Disney?? Obviously they were not involved with this film.
