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
The octopus was created as a new nemesis for Captain Hook because it was felt that the Disney animators had exhausted all the comic possibilities of "Hook vs. the Crocodile" in the original Peter Pan (1953). The octopus's tentacles make a "Pock! Pock!" sound that is similar to the "Tick tock!" sound heard from the crocodile in the previous film. See more »

She tried to kill me!
She's just jealous. All girls get like that around me.
Oh, how very nice for you.

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 »
Let's put it this way-not as bad as it could have been.
I've seen worse Disney sequels (Lady and the Tramp 2), but that still doesn't give an excuse for RETURN TO NEVERLAND. The voices are not that great-especially considering the little girl Jane- Wendy's daughter- is played by what sounds like a forty year old woman, Peter Pan sounds retarded and the lost boys...don't want to even talk about it. Plus, what's with this new Disney animation-the old animation looked a bit realistic-this new stuff is literally a "cartoon." Walt Disney would not be pleased with what's happened to his company over the years. Only a few good animation films have come out that are worth seeing, and while RETURN TO NEVERLAND is not the worst sequel ever, it is not worthy of the title-because it is not a return to neverland. It's a return to bad sequels for Disney-2/5 stars--
