[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.

Suficientemente divertido e com toques certos de drama para não manchar a memória do original.

While not all that bad of a movie, it's nowhere near as good as the original.

Disney aficionados will notice distinct parallels between this story and the 1971 musical "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," which also dealt with British children rediscovering the power of fantasy during wartime.

Peter Pan Lite, if I can say that without conjuring images of low-fat peanut butter.

While clearly second-tier Disney, this genial return visit with some beloved children's characters should find a welcome audience among the very young.

It delivers laughs, spirit, energy, and shows us that anything is possible through faith, trust, and, of course, a little pixie dust.

Less a formulaic continuation than a witty set of themes and variations that fit the earlier picture like a glowing outer ring.
