Back to Neverland

USA, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Animation)

Director: Bob Rodgers

Well known US comedian/actor Robin Williams is turned into an animated character who takes us on a tour Back To Neverland. Classic characters Peter Pan and Tinkerbell feature in this Walt Disney production which is as timeless as its characters.

Back To Neverland is included in this program because it is a creative exploration of the art and science of animation. Told in a way easily accessible to children, it is also included because Disney productions are always winners for their pure entertainment. Disney animations and Walt Disney himself are also important in any historical survey of the art of animation.
