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
Jeff Bennett replaced Corey Burton as Mr. Smee part way through production, with Burton solely focusing on Hook in the final film. Bennett would then remain the consistent voice of Mr. Smee and take on the roles of the other characters who'd been originally voiced by the Late Bill Thompson (like The White Rabbit and King Hubert) in the years to come.

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 use to, you were going to be the very first lost girl ever!
That was a long time ago
Yeah, back when you were fun!

This film would not have been possible without the inspiration from the original motion picture and the work of its talented artists and animators. See more »
My friend and I went and saw this movie and felt like we were little again. It made us laugh and it was great to see some of our favorite characters come alive again. I hate to read about critics when they dissect the movie, all you need to know is that it's a wonderful sequel, that personally, I plan to see again. No matter what age you are you'll leave after with a smile on your face. Jane is the perfect portrayal of kids these days and what they're missing. So do yourself a huge favor and just go see it.
