Return to Never Land (2002)
Critic Consensus: With its forgettable songs and lackluster story, this new Pan will surely entertain kids, but will feel more like a retread to adults.
Almost 50 years after Walt Disney brought James M. Barrie's classic children's tale Peter Pan to the screen in one of the best-loved animated features, the studio that bears his name revisits the story of the magical boy who doesn't grow up in this sequel. In London during World War II, Wendy (voice of Kath Soucie) comforts her children with stories about her youthful adventures with Peter Pan (voice of Blayne Weaver) in the fantastic world of Neverland. Young Danny (voice of Andrew McDonough) loves the stories and believes that they're real, but his older sister, Jane (voice of Harriet Owen), isn't so certain. Jane soon discovers her mother is indeed telling the truth when she's kidnapped by the evil Captain Hook (voice of Corey Burton) and spirited away to his lair in Neverland. Hook is still trying to capture his nemesis, Peter Pan, after all these years, and is certain he'll come to the rescue of his old friend, Wendy; however, Hook realizes too late that he's carried away Wendy's daughter instead. Peter comes to the aid of young Jane, but as they do battle with Hook, he realizes it will take some work before Jane will fit in with the Lost Boys. Return to Neverland includes original songs from Jonatha Brooke and They Might Be Giants. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Return to Never Land
Offers enough playful fun to entertain the preschool set while embracing a wholesome attitude.
Children will enjoy Never Land for its adventure and physical humor. Adults may simply like strolling down memory lane.
[Blu-ray Review] "Return to Never Land" is (1) a terrific motion picture, and (2) absolutely gorgeous to watch and listen to. The Blu-ray release of "Return to Never Land" is a no-brainer for Disney fans and comes highly recommended.
'Return to Never Land' is a cheerier film than 'Peter Pan,' and parents who object to the original for various reasons will find this one a gentler, friendlier option for young children.
Has an unappealing main character drifting through a dramatically inert script.
Audience Reviews for Return to Never Land
not worthy of being a disney sequel
Didn't need to be made, no point to it.
I thought it was ok. I would rather watch Hook than sit through this though. It is better than most of the straight to DVD sequels that disney always puts out though.
