The story begins at home in London during The Blitz and Mary Darling is planning to evacuate her children to the countryside. However, her plans take an unexpected turn when a familiar face from her childhood returns…the one and only Peter Pan, the mysterious boy from Kensington Gardens. Intrigued by their mother’s friend, Wendy, Michael and John seek Peter Pan out, resulting in them being whisked off to Neverland and setting up home with Peter, Tinker Bell and The Lost Boys.
As Peter and his gang come up against the wickedly evil Captain Hook their friendships and relationships are put to the test – can Wendy be honest with Peter about how she really feels, and will Michael and John return home without their sister?
