History[]

Neverland Map

Inhabitants who live on the mystical island of Neverland may cease to age if they so choose and it's best known resident Peter Pan famously refused to grow up, so it is often used as a metaphor for eternal childhood (and childishness), immortality, and escapism. Neverland has been featured prominently in subsequent works, either adapting Barrie's work or expanding upon them. These Neverlands sometimes vary in nature from the original, which seems fitting as Barrie originally described them as doing that.

to the original work and the 1911 novel, it is a physical manifestation of children's dreams, and is able to be reached through a child dreaming. However, it is possible to physically go there, and even to become a permanent resident. Its structure constantly changes and is slightly different for each individual who visits.

Locations[]

  • Home Underground - is a place where Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the Boys reside. There are many entrances into the underground home. Hollowed-out trees are made to fit every Lost Boy in Peter's ranks, and there is a small Nevertree in the middle of the large room that grows every day. Peter and the children use it as a table to eat on, then they cut it when it has grown too large. In Peter Pan in Scarlet, Peter lets the Nevertree grow too large, and it grows out of the roof. It then picks up the Wendy House and lifts it into the air. In Disney's version the hideout its called Hangman's Tree a large, but dead tree located deep within Neverland. It gets destroyed by the bomb that Captain Hook had disguised as a present from Wendy, but later Peter, Tinker Bell, and the Lost Boys rebuilt their hideout. In Peter Pan and the Pirates TV series it is renamed The Underground House.
  • Neverwood - A location where the most of the adventures in the stories take a place. The Lost Boys build the Wendy house there, and it is also the location of the Home Underground.
  • The Little House - is built from branches by the Lost Boys for Wendy after she is hit by Tootles' arrow. At the end of the play, one year after the main events in the story, the house appears in different spots every night, but always on some tree-tops. The Little House is the original "Wendy house," now the name of a children's playhouse.
  • The Jolly Roger - is the pirates' brig, described by Barrie as "a rakish-looking craft foul to the hull."
  • Neverland Plains - A location where the Indian tribes reside.
  • Skull Rock - A location where the "pirates are said to hide their booty."
  • Crocodile Creek - A swamp environment where the Crocodile lives.
  • Mermaid Lagoon - A location where the beautiful mermaids of Neverland dwell. They love to sing, comb their long hair and play the "mermaid games" in the shallow waters near the shore. However, at night when the moon is out, this area becomes a very haunting and dangerous place for mortals. The mermaids begin to howl and have even been known to drown those who dare to get too close. Captain Hook is terrified of the mermaids. He refers to them as the "loreleis" and considers their turf to be the most treacherous place in the Neverland. The lagoon is also where the infamous "Marooner's Rock" can be found. "Mermaids' Grotto" - referred to in Peter Pan and the Pirates TV series is a place where the mermaids and other mer-people congregate that is situated at the bottom of a lagoon.

In adaptations[]

  • The Black Castle - referred to in the 2003 film is an old ruined and abandoned castle, decorated with stone dragons and gargoyles. It is one of the places where Tiger Lily is taken by Captain James Hook. This sequence is based on the Marooner's Rock sequence in the original play and book and, like Disney's non-canon "Skull Rock", Black Castle replaces Marooners's Rock in this film.
  • Neverpeak Mountain - is the huge mountain that is right in the middle of Neverland. According to Peter Pan in Scarlet, when a child is on top of Neverpeak Mountain, he or she can see over anyone and anything and can see beyond belief.
  • The Maze of Regrets - is a maze in Peter Pan in Scarlet where all the mothers of the Lost Boys go to find their boys.
  • Pixie Hollow - is where Tinker Bell and her tiny fairy friends live and dwell in Disney's Tinker Bell movies and related books.
  • The Neverseas - are the seas around Neverland in Disney's Tinker Bell films. Some small islands can be found in it, and it seems that it can communicate with the real seas, as a normal ship comes across the path of a young James Hook in The Pirate Fairy.

It is occupied by a tribe reminiscent of both African and indigenous Pacific-Islander cultures. This location appears regularly in Disney Channel's animated series Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
  • Shipwreck Beach: Shipwreck Beach is a beach located on Neverland. It is littered with various shipwrecks of vessels that have fallen to its dangers waters.
  • Dead Man's Cave: The location only appears in the sequel Return to Never Land, Peter Pan hides Captain Hook's treasure within the cave.

  • Forget-Me-Not Falls - referred to in Peter Pan and the Pirates TV series, home to Forget-Me-Not who jealousy safeguards the lost memories of all who dwell in Neverland notably Peter Pan's most earliest memories prior to coming to Neverland.
  • Smoky Top - referred to in Peter Pan and the Pirates TV series, nickname to the resident active volcano located somewhere in Neverland, it must be monitored at all times to ensure it does not ever erupt.

  • Slightly's Gorge - referred to in Peter Pan and the Pirates TV series, created when redrawing the Never-scroll after Captain Hook discovered it and systematically erased parts of Neverland to affect Peter Pan.
  • White Wood -referred to in Neverland (miniseries), a icy forest where grew large white trees and the ground had frozen edges.

  • Bull Island - referred to in Neverland (miniseries), a island near by Neverland with a high in the middle a two-pointed bull mountain that the natives see on a clear day as they pass the outer islands, there are also forests and caves.
  • In Steven Spielberg's 1991 film HOOK- the pirates occupy a small port town peppered with merchant shopfronts, warehouses, hotels, pubs and an improvised baseball field, and many ships and boats of varying sizes and kinds fill the harbour, as the pirates, since Peter's disappearance, have been able to expand their territory. The Home Underground has also been replaced by an intricate tree house structure which is prominent on the landscape rather than concealed, as the Lost Boys have successfully taken over their part of Neverland. This structure is possibly a continued development of Peter's "house atop the trees" which he occupies following Hook's defeat and the Lost Boys' return to the Mainland, presumably because he no longer has to hide nor house a large community. The number of lost boys have also increased and they navigate their home via hybrid wind-surfer/skateboard tracks, as the power of flight was lost with Peter. The Mermaids' Lagoon is also directly connected to the Lost Boys' tree house structure by a giant clam-shell pulley system, possibly because they have become allies to the Lost Boys in Peter's absence. The Home Underground is discovered buried and forgotten by an adult Peter in the film, underneath the new home of the Lost Boys. Thus, while more elaborate, the locations of the Home Underground and the Pirates are unchanged. Neither the redskins nor their territory appear in the film.
