Twelve-year-old orphan Peter is spirited away to the magical world of Neverland, where he finds both fun and danger, and ultimately discovers his destiny -- to become the hero who will be for ever known as Peter Pan.
Nanny McPhee arrives to help a harried young mother who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war, though she uses her magic to teach the woman's children and their two spoiled cousins five new lessons.
Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.
Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling mesmerizes her brothers every night with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling, and the fearsome Captain Hook. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story, when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush jungles of Neverland. Wendy and her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an exhilarating life--free of grown-up rules--while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his bloodthirsty pirates.Written by

"Jas" is a standard abbreviation for the name James which is why the sign on Captain Hook's cabin door reads "Capt. Jas. Hook." This is taken directly from the book. It is not, as many viewers assume, a reference to Jason Isaacs. See more »
When the pirates realize the "crocodile" is up in the rigging, Hook is holding Michael and then throws him down to the ground. When Hook re-emerges after getting weapons, it is John that's on the ground (whom he kicks), not Michael (who is still sitting with the lost boys). See more »
[Mr. and Mrs. Darling are rushing up the stairs, right before Peter takes the children to Neverland]
It would be delightful to report that they reached the nursery in time... but then, there would be no story.

In the countries where Universal distributed, only the Universal logo appears at the beginning followed by the title, the Columbia and Revolution logos appear after the end credits. See more »
On television versions, The Columbia logo opens the film instead of the Universal logo. Universal distributed the film theatrically, however Revolution owns television rights with Sony and Debmar Mercury. See more »
WOW! that's all I can say to such a movie. The graphics were amazing and the cast were played by some excellent people. I particularly thought Jeremy Sumpter was an excellent actor. He managed to uphold the mischievous side of things at one part and be deadly serious during another. The fairy was extremely funny and the lost boys really where what you would expect in this kind of story. I think this would be a movie for family and and kids even teens but I think adults will be too familiar with the story to want to watch it, so make them!This really is a must see with a great script. If you haven't seen it yet seriously go and see it!!!!!!!!!!!!
