Scottish novelist J.M. Barrie created the iconic character of Peter Pan back in 1902. Over the years Pan has appeared in many films, television shows, plays and story books. His latest appearance is in Disney Jr.’s one hour special Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Peter Pan Returns, a television show aimed at 2-5 year old children.
In this special, Jake and his three pirate companions help Peter Pan retrieve his mischievous shadow from the dastardly Captain Hook and his swash-buckling crew.
This musical series features some eye-catching animation mixing hand-drawn with 3D digital renderings. The adventures in which the characters take part are interactive, asking toddlers to participate without talking down to them like other shows which shall remain respectfully unnamed (Dora the Explorer).
In this special home release, there are a lot of goodies for your little ones to dive into. In addition to the Peter Pan Returns special, five additional episodes of the show are also included along with a music video at the end of each segment. There are also two special features, including Yo Ho, You Ready To Find Peter’s Shadow?, an extra adventure for kids to follow along and interact with, and Pirate Party With Pirate-oke, which allows viewers to watch the music videos in a karaoke style.
As an additional bonus, an inflatable pirate sword just like Jake’s is included to help your child make-believe with his pirate friends.
This is a jam packed DVD + Digital Copy release that fans of the show will be able to enjoy time and time again.
Bottom Line: Pick up a copy for your young, heroic pirate-to-be today and revel in their jolly good times.
