Peter Pan is the story of the boy who never grew up!

Our story begins in London, in the home of the Darling family and more importantly in the children’s nursery, where the eldest child Wendy tells stories of adventures with Pirates to her younger brothers.

The magic of Wendy’s stories comes to be a reality, when the children are visited by Peter Pan himself. Peter offers to take them to Neverland, where he lives, but first he must teach them to fly. And so, we follow the Darling children as they fly out of the nursery window and over the rooftops of London to the magical home of Peter Pan.

Neverland is as magical as they had imagined – they encounter Indians, mermaids, Lost Boys, not to mention the dastardly Pirates, led by the infamous Captain Hook!

Hook is determined to kill Peter Pan and tries to poison him in his home under the ground, kidnapping Wendy and the boys in the process. And so it is aboard the Jolly Roger, Hook’s ship that, Peter rescues the boys and defeats Hook in one final showdown. The children sail back to London, leaving Peter to live where he is happiest, in Neverland.
