Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, is looking for his shadow in the Darling nursery when he awakens the Darling children--Wendy, John, and Michael. Peter tells the children of Never-Never Land, teaches them to fly, and guides them to his forest home, where he is the king of the Little Lost Boys. Tinker Bell, a fairy, becomes jealous of Wendy and persuades one of the boys to shoot her with an arrow. Wendy recovers and is adopted by the boys as their mother. Captain Hook, a notorious pirate whose hand Peter once cut off, kidnaps the children after a fierce fight with Indians who are the children's friends and guardians. Peter, discovering that the children are missing, goes to the pirate ship and frees them. The children fight the pirates and subdue them. Captain Hook is forced to walk the plank. Peter then returns with the Darling children to their nursery. Wendy asks him to stay, but Peter refuses and returns to his home in the woods.
