I received a copy of “Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Never Land Rescue” DVD for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
Synopsis: In “Jake and the NeverLand Pirates: Never Land Rescue,” Jake embarks on his most heroic mission ever as the magic of Never Land begins to disappear just as the ancient Forever Tree seems to be fading away. After a mysterious figure known as “The Guardian” arrives to explain that only the pirate who truly believes in himself can save Never Land from vanishing completely, Jake must break off from the rest of his crew and go alone on a mission to save the Forever Tree, the source of magic throughout all of Never Land. Guiding Jake on his quest is Tinker Bell, who makes her first-ever appearance in the series.
I have time and again mentioned how big of a “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” fan my son is. He’s actually a big fan of almost all the Disney Junior shows (like the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Henry Hugglemonster, Doc McStuffins, Special Agent Oso, Octonauts, and Chuggington) but his favorites are Jake and Mickey. And like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, he even dressed up as Jake when we celebrated his birthday in Disneyland earlier this year. So yes, he was so excited to watch this DVD!
The story revolves around Jake’s mission to save Neverland as magic seems to be draining out of the land. And while there are times when Jake had to face his mission alone, his crew — Izzy, Cubby, and Skully — is always there to help him. Two special guests also appear in the movie so look out for them!
If your little one is an avid Jake and the Neverland Pirates fan, you probably know that one of the show’s themes revolves around “solving problems together” and the same is true for this DVD. It’s something little kids should learn about early on and I’m glad the show gives it emphasis.
