Wendy and her brothers are whisked away to the magical world of Neverland with the hero of their stories, Peter Pan.
In the play, the Lost Boys were infants who fell out of their prams while the nurses weren't looking. Whereas Peter Pan is a permanent resident of Neverland, the Lost Boys are only temporary lodgers. If they seem to grow up, Pan would kill them to prevent Neverland from an overpopulation and reduce the chances of a challenge to his rule.
All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house ...
When the children are in the nursery being tucked into bed, Wendy's pillow changes from being striped to being white and then striped again.
A message appears during the credits: "Walt Disney Productions is grateful to the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London, to which Sir James M. Barrie gave his copyright of Peter Pan."
In the 1990 video, instead of the original RKO logo, the film opens with the entire Walt Disney Pictures logo, with the Walt Disney Pictures theme replacing part of "The Second Star to the Right." In the 1998 video, 1999, 2002 and 2007 DVD, the RKO logo and music are restored, but they occur after the Walt Disney Pictures logo opens the film. In the 2013 and 2018 Blu-Ray/DVD, the Walt Disney Pictures logo isn't used at all and just begins with the RKO logo.
