Not to be confused with Return to Never Land

Back to Never Land was a 1989 live-action/animated hybrid film that was shown inside the former attraction, Magic of Disney Animation at Disney's Hollywood Studios and inside the Disney Animation Building at Disney California Adventure. It was directed by Jerry Rees and produced by Bob Rogers. The attraction ran from May 1, 1989, to September 30, 2003.

Summary

Hosted by both the late Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite, the film takes the audience through the animation process in the form of an adventure to Neverland, where Robin takes on the role of one of the Lost Boys and has a bad run in with Captain Hook.

Fortunately, he meets Tinker Bell before being sent to walk the plank and they plan to use Tick-Tock the Crocodile against Hook by hitting him with some Pixie Dust. However, after defeating Hook and being brought back into the real world, he immediately goes back into the animated world when Peter Pan invites him to join him for another adventure.

Cast

Trivia

  • The outfit worn by Williams in the beginning was later used for the Genie at the end of Aladdin.
  • In the original version of the film, Robin is inked and painted for color. When the CAPS system replaced ink and paint, this scene was replaced with a version where Robin is taken into the computer, but does not agree with his color scheme, so he is given random colors, so then he says, "Fine. Do whatever you want."
