Common Elements

Plot Elements

In Edwardian London, in the neighborhood of Bloomsbury, George and Mary Darling's preparations to attend a party are disrupted by the antics of the boys, John and Michael, acting out a story about Peter Pan and the pirates that was told to them by their older sister, Wendy. Their father angrily declares that Wendy has gotten too old to continue staying in the nursery with them, and it's time for her to grow up. That night they are visited in the nursery by Peter Pan himself, who teaches them to fly with the help of his pixie friend, Tinker Bell, and takes them with him to the island of Never Land.

A ship of pirates is anchored off Never Land, commanded by Captain Hook with his sidekick Mr. Smee. Hook boldly plots to take revenge upon Peter Pan for cutting off his hand, but he trembles when the crocodile that ate it arrives; it now stalks him hoping to taste more. The crew's restlessness is interrupted by the arrival of Peter and the Darlings. The children easily evade them, and despite a trick by jealous Tinker Bell to have Wendy killed, they meet up with the Lost Boys: six lads in animal-costume pajamas, who look to Peter as their leader. John and Michael set off with the Lost Boys to find the island's Indians, who instead capture them, believing them responsible for taking the chief's daughter Tiger Lily.

Meanwhile, Peter takes Wendy to see the mermaids, where they see that Hook and Smee have captured Tiger Lily, to coerce her into revealing Peter's hideout. Peter and Wendy free her, and Peter is honored by the tribe. Hook then plots to take advantage of Tinker Bell's jealousy of Wendy, tricking her into revealing the location of Peter's lair. The pirates lie in wait and capture the Lost Boys and the Darlings as they exit, leaving behind a time bomb to kill Peter. Tinker Bell learns of the plot just in time to snatch the bomb from Peter as it explodes.

Peter rescues Tinker Bell from the rubble and together they confront the pirates, releasing the children before they can be forced to walk the plank. Peter engages Hook in single combat as the children fight off the crew, and finally succeeds in humiliating the captain. Hook and his crew flee, with the crocodile in hot pursuit. Peter gallantly commandeers the deserted ship, and with the aid of Tinker Bell's pixie dust, flies it to London with the children aboard.

Mr. and Mrs. Darling return home from the party to find Wendy not in her bed, but sleeping at the open window; John and Michael are asleep in their beds. Wendy wakes and excitedly tells about their adventures. The parents look out the window and see what appears to be a pirate ship in the clouds. Mr. Darling, who has softened his position about Wendy staying in the nursery, recognizes it from his own childhood, as it breaks up into clouds itself.

In Return to Never Land, Wendy's daughter Jane is kidnapped by Captain Hook and rescued by Peter Pan but he finds that she is the opposite of Wendy being very practical and serious. Peter and the Lost Boys work hard to bring out her inner child.

The Tinker Bell films focus on Tinker Bell's life and experiences before she met Peter Pan. It shows her birth and how she became the successful fairy she is today as well as introducing some of her friends such as Iridessa and Silvermist. Later in Secret of the Wings when Tink and Periwinkle meet, their wings begin to glow, just like when Tink first crosses the border. The keeper, whews name turns out to be Dewey, discovers that Tink and Peri were born from the same laugh, thus making them sisters. In the The Pirate Fairy Rosetta tells everyone she cracked an egg, which hatches. Since she was the first sight he saw, the baby crocodile gives her a kiss and a hug, believing she is his mother. A young Captain Hook, then known as James the Cabin Boy, meets a rougish, talented pixie-dust fairy (named Zarina), that has betrayed Pixie Hollow (the homeland of Tinker Bell and the fairies of Neverland) and left to live amongst the pirates, befriending James once she does. James, himself, poses as a benevolent lad who appreciates Zarina, unlike the rest of her former friends. Zarina is known to be one of the most intelligent fairies in Pixie Hollow, and despite being a dust-keeper fairy (a fairy who harvests pixie dust for other fairies to use) she proves to be an amazing innovator, figuring out ways to make various forms of pixie dust with varying abilities, such as the powerfully dangerous ability to switch fairy talents, as well as create her very own pixie dust, though that trick requires the use of the mystic blue pixie dust, which Zarina steals and brings to James and his crew as part of their plan to create their own Pixie Dust Tree, that'll generate an endless supply of pixie dust, enabling the pirates with the ability to fly, thus advancing their goals in plundering the seven seas and beyond to become wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, much like any pirate. After James meets his defeat at the hands of Tinker Bell and her Pixie Hollow friends. Smee is seen sailing on a ship where he spots James stranded in the middle of the NeverSea. After spotting the washed up captain, Smee compliments the hook he's carrying around (alluding the iconic hook he'll one day gain), to which James replies by furiosly demanding Smee rescues him. Being that Smee was absent during the rest of the movie, it is highly possible this is the moment in which he and Captain Hook meet for the first time. Unlike Hook, however, Smee's appearance hasn't altered whatsoever, revealing he's far beyond Hook in terms of age.
