Wendy Darling (Kathryn Beaumont) enjoys telling her younger brothers, Michael and John, stories about the mythical Peter Pan (Bobby Driscoll), the little boy who never grew up. One night, much to everyone's surprise, Peter flies into the Darling nursery, in search of his shadow, which Wendy had previously captured.

Sprinkling the children with magic pixie dust, Peter flies off to Never-Never Land, with Wendy, Michael and John in tow. Once there, the children are frightened by Captain Hook, who intends to capture Peter and do away with him. After rescuing Indian princess Tiger Lily from Captain Hook, Peter must save the children, not to mention his own Lost Boys, from the diabolical pirate captain. In addition, he must contend with his tiny sprite Tinker Bell, who is jealous of Wendy.

Based on the novel by James M. Barrie.
