In the present day, Peter Banning (Creator/RobinWilliams) is a workaholic mergers and acquisitions lawyer [[WhenYouComingHomeDad whose job keeps him from his wife Moira and his two kids, preteen Jack and little Maggie]]. The family travels to London, England to attend the dedication of a new wing of the Great Ormond Street Hospital, to be named after "Granny" Wendy Darling (Maggie Smith) - Moira's grandmother and the woman who raised the orphan Peter before placing him with American parents. While most of the adults are at the dedication ceremony, the children are kidnapped, and the ransom note left behind is a scroll pinned to the door with a dagger, requesting Peter's presence and signed by one James Hook.

Wendy reveals to Peter that she and her brothers were not only the ones who gave James M. Barrie the inspiration to write ''Peter Pan'', but that the story was an account of true experiences. Peter is the now-grown-up Pan, and Captain Hook still wants revenge upon him, so he kidnapped the kids. Having no memory of life before he was twelve years old, he does not believe this - but later that night, he is approached by Tinker Bell (Julia Roberts) herself, and she hauls him off to Neverland (as he has no happy thoughts to make the fairy dust work).

Added DiffLines:

* FairySexy: Tinkerbell is played by the sexy Creator/JuliaRoberts. Her crush on Peter is also maintext, since she outright says that this is why she became his FairyCompanion, and kisses him after assuming human size near the end.

Added DiffLines:

* DemotedMemories: Peter Pan grew up in the real world and refuses to believe that he used to be Peter Pan, even when Captain Hook leaves him a note. Justified in that his adventures were actually recorded in the form of the Peter Pan mythos we know so he could more easily write it off as something he just picked up or read about.

Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: Peter's wife Moira is fanatically waiting for him and their children at home, but it doesn't stop Peter from kissing a life-sized Tinkerbell. However, they don't go further and Tink accepts the fact that Peter ''does'' love Moira.

** Can be justified in that they're a whole new generation of Lost Boys from the decades after Wendy's family adopted all the original ones and Peter eventually left 1960s. Several of them could be from the 70's and '80s, responsible for introducing things like skateboarding and schoolyard basketball(the sport itself has been around since 1891 anyway).

* AudibleSharpness: The Pan's sword hasn't gone dull in the fifty plus years since Peter left Neverland, and it even makes noise when ''[[AudibleGleam light]]'' hits it. Could be justified in this instance by being slightly magical in nature.

* * {{Acrofatic}}: Thudbutt is amazingly flexible, at one point bending his body to form a perfectly spherical boulder against Hook's pirates.

* CruelAndUnusualPunishment: Hook and his crew are quite fond of these. Most notable however is the Boo Box, where one unfortunate pirate gets trapped in with several scorpions simply for questioning his captain behind his back.



* FaceDeathWithDignity: Zig-zagged by Hook, who when beaten by Peter calmly tells him, “Strike, Peter Pan. Strike true.” But when Peter then tells him to leave Neverland and never come back, [[ISurrenderSuckers Hook attacks Peter]]. When trying to attack Peter, Hook accidentally brings the Crocodile back to life, and this time Hook’s reaction is far less dignified.
-->'''Hook''': IWantMyMommy!



* FirstKiss: Tinkerbell has her first ever with Peter, and he first seems to ask for “more,” but right as she goes in for her second (ever) kiss, he says, “Moira!” [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Tink takes it surprisingly well.]]

* AluminumChristmasTrees: One lost boy has armor made of cobwebs. Spider silk is actually stronger than steel and is synthesized for use in bulletproof vests.

* DisneyVillainDeath: Inverted [[spoiler: by the Crocodile falling on Captain Hook, rather Hook falling to his death. But like the standard trope, Hook’s actual death [[KilledOffscreen is not shown]].]]

* LiteralMetaphor: Tootles truly did “lose his marbles.”



* MarqueeAlterEgo: Tinkerbell has one scene where she is human size, allowing Creator/JuliaRoberts to physically share a scene with Creator/RobinWilliams.



* ShowWithinAShow: Maggie plays Wendy in a school production of “Peter Pan,” and even sings a song from the play while in Neverland.
* SignatureMove: Once Banning transforms back into Peter Pan, he does a triangle flight [[FullMoonSilhouette up to and then down from the moon]], and when he arrives to fight Hook, he floats above Hook’s ship in the DynamicAkimbo pose.



* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Jack is so bitter about his dad missing baseball games, not letting him jump on his bed, etc. that he has become convinced that his father feels he's more of an inconvenience than someone he loves. Hook uses this to turn him to the bad guys' side.

* WhenYouComingHomeDad: A favorite trope of Creator/StevenSpielberg. Jack is so bitter about his dad missing baseball games, not letting him jump on his bed, etc. that he has become convinced that his father feels he's more of an inconvenience than someone he loves. Hook uses this to turn him to the bad guys' side.
