Return to Neverland


The magic of fairy dust still flies in this colorful sequel to the 1953 animated Disney classic fantasy-adventure “Peter Pan.” And the same characters return to join in the fun, although Wendy (voice of Kath Soucie), the little girl from London, is now grown up and has her own family in London during World War II. But Wendy’s mature 12-year-old daughter, Jane (Harriet Owen), is very pragmatic and realistic, much to her mother’s dismay. However, Jane gets a big dose of fantasy life when she’s mysteriously kidnapped and taken to Neverland by the notorious pirate, Captain Hook (Corey Burton), and his pirate crew. Wendy calls on her friend Peter Pan (Blayne Weaver), the boy who never grew up, and his tiny fairy companion, Tinkerbell, to rescue Jane from Hook and his pirates. They embark on an action-packed adventure and survive many harrowing battles, some of which may be too intense for sensitive young children. Children from 2 to 102 will enjoy the action, music, and colorful sights in this delightful, but intense fairy tale.

Dove Review

Although Jane comes to believe in fantasy magic, young film viewers should be able to discern animated fantasy from what’s real. The film also encourages children to have faith and trust in themselves. If you liked the first trip, we recommend “Return to Neverland.”
