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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Offers enough playful fun to entertain the preschool set while embracing a wholesome attitude."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A brisk, reverent, and subtly different sequel."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"[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."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"Pleasant but forgettable sequel to Disney classic."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"There is no doubt the movie is lovely to look at; it just hasn't much substance to it or much new to say."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Children will enjoy Never Land for its adventure and physical humor. Adults may simply like strolling down memory lane."
‑ Scott Craven, Arizona Republic
"Though the characters may connect as nostalgia for boomer parents, their kiddies will wonder what all the fuss was about."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"'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."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Suficientemente divertido e com toques certos de drama para não manchar a memória do original."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The first fifteen minutes are so unremittingly dreary that it plays like Disney for depressive kids. Pass the kiddies' Prozac, I say . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Movie Gurus
"If you've got a house full of tots -- don't worry, this will be on video long before they grow up and you can wait till then."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Less a formulaic continuation than a witty set of themes and variations that fit the earlier picture like a glowing outer ring."
‑ F.X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly
"Has an unappealing main character drifting through a dramatically inert script."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"It's not groundbreaking, but kids who enjoyed the original Peter Pan should welcome a trip back to Neverland"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Running at a brisk 72 minutes, it's near impossible to become bored with the film..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
