Maybe this was a film that didn't need to be made, but parents with small children will be glad that Disney did, because it's a kinder, gentler trip to Never Land than the original, and a much safer bet for young children.

[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.

Has an unappealing main character drifting through a dramatically inert script.

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

It's not groundbreaking, but kids who enjoyed the original Peter Pan should welcome a trip back to Neverland

There is no doubt the movie is lovely to look at; it just hasn't much substance to it or much new to say.

The first fifteen minutes are so unremittingly dreary that it plays like Disney for depressive kids. Pass the kiddies' Prozac, I say . . .

Running at a brisk 72 minutes, it's near impossible to become bored with the film...

This film looks like it was produced in 1954, shelved for 48 years, and repackaged for a 2002 audience.

The film is fun, energetic, and brightly colored and I think kids will love it a lot.

Mostly good work, but still weighed down by many second-rate elements.

Offers enough playful fun to entertain the preschool set while embracing a wholesome attitude.

Has all the hallmarks of a movie designed strictly for children's home video, a market so insatiable it absorbs all manner of lame entertainment, as long as 3-year-olds find it diverting.

I can only assume that Disney buried Peter Pan in Stephen King's pet sematary, because resurrected in the misbegotten Return to Never Land is one sour Fairy King.

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.
