Okay I'm going nuts. Someone wanna help explain this to me?

Okay in Peter Pan if you go to Neverland you will never grow up. Then how is Captain Hook, his pirates, and the Indians there?

But if you can grow old, but still be in Neverland because you don't grow up (never mature), then why doesn't Peter age and why can't Wendy return? If I remember right, she still believed in Peter Pan even as an adult. So technically she never grew up so she should have still been able to return to Neverland.

Does anyone understand this?

It's been a while since I've seen the Disney movie, but from what I remember it depends on your own choice. Peter Pan doesn't want to grow up. He stays young forever because he chooses to, and so do his lost boys. The rest of the inhabitants of Neverland don't share that 'stay young forever' mentality and choose to grow up.

Wendy and her brothers go along with the idea at first, but Wendy eventually makes the choice to go back home. As far as I can remember her reasoning was because she wants to grow up and become a mother? And her brothers are reminded of their mother and father back home and they then want to go home too.

I believe Wendy could return to Neverland if she wanted to? But I think she didn't want to, as (at the time of the sequel movie) she's a fully grown mother as she's always wanted, and she's ok with that choice. She's outgrown Peter Pan and now views him as what he's always been, a child. So its her daughter that goes to Neverland on an adventure with Peter instead. I don't remember much more of that movie haha

I read a really well-written but very creepy short story about just that...

Never

Warning: it really is creepy.

I read the book for the very first time last year, and my understanding about the pirates was that they tended to wander in and out of Neverland. Hook was only the current lead pirate. There'd been one before him and in the book I think he was killed, so eventually some other pirate would wander into the scene and take over.

I know that in Peter in Scarlet, Wendy and the others become young again by wearing their kids clothes. Poor Toodles didn't have any sons so he borrowed his daughters clothes and when he became young again he became a girl.

Wait, wasn't this originally written as a play, not a novel?
I don't remember which came first, now...

Pretty sure the Play came first. I know Peter in Scarlet is an Authorized sequal. It's a book.

Ah, okay! Sometimes I get confused by works that span media types.


Do you think the question was left deliberately unanswered for artistic purposes or more that there might be an answer that none of us are familiar enough with the works to provide or more that you think the author never had an answer himself and just dodged the question?
