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.

Captain Bonnie notes that Orion is "in the wrong place" and Polaris is not visible. From anywhere far enough away that Polaris is not visible, Orion would also not be visible, or the parts of it that were visible would not remotely resemble Orion as we see it from Earth. See more »
You all remember Peter Pan, right? The flying boy who never grows old? Well, this is how this all started, and I watched both parts tonight on SyFy. This is a Mini-Series, and it's actually the first one I've ever watched, so of course I'm gonna tell you what I thought of it.
What Peter does in this tale is show what kind of person he was before he ever went to meet Wendy. This all takes place in this 4-hour event that is a breath of fresh air to the inner Pan in all of us. It shows just how you don't have to age or change your physical appearance to grow up. All you really have to do to grow up is to mature, and that is exactly what Peter Pan does and how he does it without growing old.
Now, when you first heard the mainstream story of when Peter Pan met Wendy, there were questions that needed answering. Well, here's a little something that does it justice. It explains the hook, explains Tinkerbell, explains the ability to fly, and even gives another way to go from one world to another. Also, it doesn't just give it right away. It waits till the right moment to do so.
Now, let me point out that even though this was a great prequel, there are still bits that look like a typical SyFy B-Movie, so I have to take off points for that. However, the manner is more forgivable, as it's not so faked out as say "Sharktopus" or "Basilisk". In a way, this is a departure from what you might usually get from SyFy.
Peter Pan is well-done by Charlie Rowe, and I see a promising career for the young lad. Also, good job Kiera Knightley for the voice of Tinkerbell. The two are really brought justice by two neated-out talents. Neverland really does fit in a good-looking puzzle that is the legacy of Peter Pan. (December 5th, 2011)
