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 Lost Boys' names, never spoken in Peter Pan (1953), are revealed in this film: Slightly (Fox Costume), Nibs (Rabbit Costume), The Twins (Raccoon Costumes), Cubby (Bear Costume) and Toodles (Skunk Costume). They come from J.M. Barrie's writings. See more »
In one scene when the Lost Boys mentioned about "faith, trust and pixie dust", Nibs had Slightly's voice and vice-versa. See more »
You promised no one would get hurt. You gave your word.
And Captain Hook always keeps his word. I promised I would not harm a hair on Peter Pan's head.
[Plucks a hair from Peter's head]
And this is the one I won't harm. Here, you keep it.
[Gives it to Jane]
The rest of him is mine.

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 is a perfect example of why Walt Disney said very clearly "Don't let them make sequels to my movies." He didn't want Peter Pan 2, Snow White 2 and so on. The studio has made some great movies (Lion King, Little Mermaid), but has the creative well run dry? Aren't there thousands of wonderful fairy tales from around the world that could be done? This movie (short, like Tarzan and Jane short) felt more like an exploitation of a classic than a tribute to a timeless and charming film.
