Awesome / Return to Never Land

Go To

  • The prologue recaps the events of the first film pretty admirably, adding a medley of significant songs to silhouettes of characters appearing in the clouds.
  • Hook's first appearance, soaring right past an entire squadron of attacking Luftwaffe, which was Nazi Germany's most deadly, effective, and feared military air force, without being spotted.
    • Then the following scene where he kidnaps Jane and escapes as London goes on full alert with spotlights and cannon fire. The music definitely helps here with an intimidating and powerful tune. And as the Jolly Roger sails into Neverland, we are treated with a kaleidoscope of shapes and colors and audio clips from the first movie.
    • The fact that, in England at least, it's been about 20 years and the pirate ship is still flying. Seems Tinkerbell's fairy dust can do a lot when she wants it to.
  • Jane trounces Captain Hook with much confidence and aplomb alongside Tink to spectacularly save the Lost Boys. It would be almost into Large Ham territory if it wasn't so awesome and improbably cool for such a formerly overly-mature character.
    Jane: Not so fast, you old codfish, or you'll have to answer to me!
  • The gymnastic maneuver Peter pulls off on the ledge of the Jolly Roger to rescue Jane. It's so extra it manages to circle back into being genuinely impressive.
  • The entirety of the song "I'll Try". First it rips your heart out as a tender song about the loss of childhood the main character is facing, having grown up in World War Two. Then it becomes a musical crowning moment of awesome as Tinkerbell comes alive and it's clear that Jane has learned how to believe in something.
    • On the topic of music, "So to Be One of Us", written by none other than They Might Be Giants. That's a pretty impressive get for a Disney film, let alone a sequel.
