If the children are ever to return home, Peter must defeat Captain Hook with the help of Tinker Bell and her fairy friends. Peter Pan Jr. features classic songs from the 1953 film such as, “You Can Fly!,” “Following the Leader” and “The Second Star to the Right,” as well as songs from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the 2008 Disney film “Tinker Bell.”
