Raised on the streets of turn-of-the century London, orphaned Peter and his pals survive by their fearless wits as cunning young pickpockets. Now, they've been rounded up by their mentor Jimmy Hook to snatch a priceless, some believe, magical treasure which transports them to another world. Neverland is a realm of white jungles and legendary mysteries of eternal youth, where unknown friends and enemies snatched from time welcome the new travelers with both excitement and trepidation. These groups include a band of 18th century pirates led by the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny, and the Native American Kaw tribe led by a Holy Man, which has protected the secret of the tree spirits from Bonny and her gang for ages, and that has meant war. But as the fight to save this strange and beautiful world becomes vital, Hook, Peter, and the ragamuffin lost boys consider that growing old somewhere in time could be less important than growing up, right here in their new home called Neverland.

The strengths of this miniseries were the acting and the script. It was a very well put together story, and the actors really took that script to make the story something very good, unique and yet still true to the story of Peter Pan. They took J Barry's masterpiece, and added depth, meat, and for a story to do that means that it has to make sense. It totally does. This story sets out with the endeavor to fill in all the missing wholes in the story, and they very much so accomplished that goal.
The only thing that I saw was lacking was the production. It was low budget. The special effects were decent, and if I was watching this 10 years ago it would be much worse a quality. But I don't think the lack of production took too much away from the story telling. This story should have gone to a bigger screen with a bigger production budget. It was a great script, the actors executed it well, and it should be seen by more people besides those who have the Sci-Fi channel. It limits too much even who would hear about it.
