A double feature containing the original Disney animated 1953 feature, PETER PAN, and it's 2002 theatrically released sequel, RETURN TO NEVER LAND. See individual titles for further details. PETER PAN (1953): Join mischievous Peter Pan, the young boy who refuses to grow up, his hot-tempered pixie pal, Tinker Bell and the Darling children as they soar away to the mysterious Never-Never land where childhood lasts forever in this magical, musical adventure. Based on J.M. Barrie's 1904 book. RETURN TO NEVER LAND (2002): In this sequel to the 1953 Disney classic PETER PAN, Wendy is all grown up, with children of her own. She lives in London, which, as the film starts, is in the midst of the devastating German bombardments of World War II. The hardships of war have made Wendy's daughter Jane a practical, level-headed girl, with little time for her mother's wild stories of Peter Pan and Neverland. Jane doesn't believe in fairies and fantasy lands. That is, not until Captain Hook swoops down in his computer-animated pirate ship to kidnap her and whisk her away through a spectacular space portal into Neverland. Captain Hook wants Jane as bait to finally catch Peter Pan. The crocodile which plagued Hook in the original film has been replaced by a giant orange octopus. Jane just wants to get back home to London, and decides to help Hook find hidden treasure since he promises to take her home. But in order to finally make it home, Jane must learn to believe in faith, trust, and pixie dust. This sequel primarily uses traditional animation, in the same style as the original film, although some modern computer animation is also used. Fans of the classic PETER PAN will enjoy visiting Neverland again.
