Peter Pan (1953)

Never Land, the place of eternal childhood, is actually filled with many grown up themes such as revenge, betrayal, and broken hearts. How do Wendy and her brothers “grow up” during the course of their adventure? What qualities from their juvenile years should adults not abandon?

Although the story of Peter Pan may be pure fantasy, its legacy has helped many children in a very real way when the author, J.M. Barrie donated the royalties from the story to the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
