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
Jane steals the key for Peter's bonds from Hook. During the following chase up and down the ship ending with Jane flying around and finally landing near Peter to free him, the key is in her left hand, gone, in her right hand, gone, in her left hand, gone and finally in her right hand. See more »

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 »
This movie is not up to normal Disney standards in either the musical or animation department. As a whole, however, it isn't that bad. There are a few very charming moments involving both Jane, Peter and the lost boys. Also, it was nice to see Jane follow in the tradition of other Disney heroines and have a strong character.
Also, The brief last scene involving Peter and a grown-up Wendy was touching in a way that it's live action counterpart Hook never was.
Overall, if you have kids, it's a fun mindlessly entertaining afternoon at the movie theater. Not nearly as good as the original, but still fun.
