Peter Pan (Williams) has grown up to be a cut-throat merger and acquisitions lawyer, and is married to Wendy's granddaughter. Captain Hook (Hoffman) kidnaps his children, and Peter returns to Never Land with Tinkerbell (Roberts). With the help of her and the Lost Boys, he must remember how to be Peter Pan again in order to save his children by battling with Captain Hook once again.
A John Williams masterpiece, the emotion he evokes through this music is incredible: it can make you experience what the characters in the movie are feeling – see the menace of Captain Hook, or find your happy thought and fly. One could just sit and listen to it for hours without finding all the little nuances in the music. It includes the vocal selections "We Don't Wanna Grow Up" and "When You're Alone."

In 1991 the soundtrack music of the film The Park Is Mine, starring Tommy Lee Jones, was released for the first time on CD. It had been composed back in 1985 by TD with the line-up Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Johannes Schmoelling. As stated on the CD insert, the recording was prepared for release without the cooperation of TD. Thus it could not be mastered using the original master tapes by TD but two-track stereo tapes used for the film. This resulted in a sound quality not as excellent as TD listeners are used to.
