Storyline

In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerizes her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling, and the fearsome Captain Hook. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush jungles of Neverland. Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life--free of grown-up rules--while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Goofs

When the pirates realize the "crocodile" is up in the rigging, Hook is holding Michael and then throws him down to the ground. When Hook re-emerges after getting weapons, it is John that's on the ground (whom he kicks), not Michael (who is still sitting with the lost boys). See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Darling: And what's your name?
Nibs: Nibs. I plan the battles.
Mrs. Darling: Would you like a mother, Nibs?
Nibs: [crying] Yes!

Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was edited (ie. Hook killing various pirates, sight of skeletons, much of Hooks more menacing dialogue, the final fight, the crocodile swallowing Hook) to secure a more commercial "Not under 6" rating. The DVD (rated "Not under 12") includes all these scenes but misses the head-butt due to the use of the cut UK PAL-master (see above). See more »

Underrated gem
5 May 2004 | by jpintarSee all my reviews

This is by far the best filming of Peter Pan I have ever seen. Unlike Hook, this movie has magic to it. I think most of the characters, especially Peter Pan and Hook, are three dimensional characters. Never Never Land looks like a great place to visit. However, there are disadvantages to living there, such as never falling in love. I was surprised how much I loved this movie. The actors are very well cast. Peter Pan is not an obnoxious kid like he is sometimes portrayed as, but as a boy who refuses to grow but knows there are consequences to this. The actor who plays Captain Hook is not just a bad guy, but as somewhat of a sad person locked in never ending combat with Peter Pan. I like this better than the animated Disney movies and the overproduced Hook. I think this will appeal to everybody, not just young children. So I suggest you see this movie even if you do not have children. 8/10
