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.

Director Nick Willing mentioned (at 2:23:51 in the director's commentary of the SyFy version on the 2012 Vivendi Entertainment DVD) that the first scene shot in the movie was on the galley in Genoa where Jimmy Hook again appears dressed in his Edwardian cloths after many scenes of wearing Starkey's best suit of clothes. Willing mentioned (at around 02 mins) that the galley had been built for Roman Polanski's Pirates (1986) at a cost of $9 million, that a 6 day shoot in Genoa was planned, that the shoot was cut to 5 days for budgetary reasons, and that due to torrential rains they were only able to shoot for 4 days, which would have been the first week of the shoot.

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 »
I've only seen part one so far, and I enjoyed it a lot. I like the characters, and the acting has been very good. The imagery is beautiful. I saw some very familiar faces. The costumes are all interesting as well.
I have wondered since I was young, how did Peter and the lost boys REALLY get to Neverland? Where did the Indians and pirates come from? And now I know! But how did Hook lose his hand, and what made him so mean? And how did the crocodile swallow the ticking clock? Looking forward to seeing part 2, so I can find out the answers to those and other questions.
