Try to wanna grow up fine twice reckon . the guy after 70 years of business toys . r us announced yesterday it's closing . its doors in america looks like everyone . has to grow up sometime a peter . [music]. hello internet welcome to film theory . the never-never-land of the internet . that's peter pam's never-never-land not . the creepy michael jackson neverland if . you haven't guessed it yet today we're . exploring the world of disney's favorite . narcissistic tween heartthrob peter pan. as you're probably aware cuz i say this . literally every disney episode growing. up i loved all the disney movies except . for pinocchio but who didn't want to be . peter pan . he had the ladies fighting over him. constantly which is inexplicable when . you think about what a creeper he . actually is in his own movie ooh here's . a mystery boy who sneaks into my bedroom. at night and talks only about himself . give me a piece of that . so really the big draw here is obvious . everyone wants to be able to stay a kid . forever and play video games and avoid . the irs cuz taxes suck but you can't be . peter pan and stay young forever unless . you figure out where neverland is and . also grab some fairy dust and fly there . and defeat some pirates but one thing at . a time people the geography is clearly . the hardest part until today that's . right the mission for today is to find . the geographic location of neverland . sounds absurd right but we're actually . given plenty of hints throughout the . movie in books second star to the right . and straight on till morning and all . that jazz even jamberries original book. describes peter and the darling children . flying over the ocean to get to . neverland but he just never specifically . says where they choose to land in the . original versions there's no mention of. a star at all . he just says second to the right and . then straight on till morning but i'm . not talking hints i am telling you today . that i have definitively located. neverland to the point that you can . actually book your next vacation there . and start taking all the swashbuckling . and native american themed racism you . want. so sprinkle yourselves with theory dust . and think happy thoughts next stop is . neverland to start we need to remember . that wendy john and michael darling live . in london when peter tells them that . neverland is the second star to the . right and straight on till morning . it's a really vague but actually the. scene gives us plenty of clues to . determine which direction they're headed . first i compared this frame of the movie . to constellations that could reasonably . appear in the london night sky well we . don't get anything too conclusive we can . actually speculate that these stars here. might be mizar and alcor which are in . similar positions to what we see in the . movie though in real life they should . appear to be part . big dipper constellation anyway there's . no need to get out your astrolabes just . yet because the good news is we actually . don't need the exact stars that they're . looking at we can tell which direction . the kids are facing just through the . landmarks around them after flying out . of the nursery the kids in peter land on . one of the sides of the elizabeth tower . clock the east side to be specific now i . already hear you but actually people . cracking your knuckles preparing for a . wave of comments saying but actually . that's not elizabeth tower that's big . ben but a fun fact big ben is the . nickname of the bell inside of the . elizabeth tower so feel free to annoy . all your friends with your pedantic. knowledge of london landmarks anyway how . can we tell that they're facing east . well look at the shout of peter of the . darlings flying up to the clock in the . bottom right we can see a statue of a . horse rearing up and that is in fact the . statue known as the buddakan rebellion . statue which commemorates an ancient. celtic queen who drove the romans out of . london yes queen that statue is located . to the northeast of the town so they're . landing on the east side going to the . right would be them flying south but we . get an even more specific idea of the . direction by tracking their flight they . fly over westminster bridge facing east . and they make a sharp turn over the . bridge so sharp that the camera has to . rotate to follow peter to head southwest . and that's the direction the camera . follows them until they get to neverland . tldr they're going south and west of . london which indicates that they're . making a transatlantic flight towards . the americas so now that we know they're . headed to north or south america we can. look at a few other factors to help us . narrow down the search for neverland . judging by the map that we see of . neverland we're looking at an island. that's fairly small and features a . number of inlets and lagoons typically . there are two types of lagoons of the . americas coastal lagoons which are . connected to the coastline of a much . larger landmass and at ola beads which . are more isolated and formed by coral . reefs by the looks of it there are no . major land masses in the waters around . neverland so we can conclude that . neverland is an atoll now atolls require . coral reefs and tropical waters so that . narrows our search a lot from the . southern tip of florida throughout the. caribbean and down through the cone . in brazil but geography is just the . beginning we also know a lot about . what's on that island notably raka dials . assuming this crocodile didn't escape . from the zoo or from suicide squad . though who can blame him for wanting to . escape that movie if we can pin fleet . never lands location if we know the . species of crocodile there are only two . species of crocodile indigenous to the . waters around latin america more lets . crocodile and the american crocodile . well both can take your hand off pretty . darn well. more lets crocodile is a lot smaller . than the american crocodile at about 10 . feet to 16 feet considering the fact . that captain hook fit entirely inside. this crocodiles mouth we're much more. likely to be looking at the american . crocodile additionally more lets . crocodile is only found in freshwater . environments while the american . crocodile is most often found in salt . water like you'd find off the coast of . an atoll the only downside here is that . the american crocodile is pretty . widespread as far as man-eating reptiles. go so we're looking at pretty much the . entire caribbean in our hunt for . neverland there are also a few other . animals that i thought might narrow . things down a bit more jamberry says . that there are sea turtles and flamingos . in neverland but those are also found . all around the caribbean the seagull . that we see smee shave . doesn't narrow it down the mermaids for . these i even looked at the habitats of. manatees which believe it or not are . historically the animal most commonly. associated with mermaid sightings and . that still didn't aero things down so at . that point i ran out of animals and . wasn't sure if i was looking at a dead . end here but it turns out that the last . part of the theory doesn't hinge on the . animals in neverland it hinges on the . people according to the source material . for peter pan captain hook was . originally a bosun from blackbeard the . pirate now blackbeard was very busy . pirating all over the east coast of. america in the caribbean from seventeen . sixteen to seventeen eighteen which when . you stop and think about it for carrying . the title of the most famous non . fictional pirate in history is actually. not that long of a time spent a . pillaging and searching for booty but . what blackbeard left in longevity he . made up for in volume blackbeard had a . ton of instances over that two-year . period stealing wine burning ships and. blockading ports so where does captain . hook fit into all this. well in the spring of 17-18 blackbeard . captured a few ships in the gulf of . honduras right off the yucatan . insula and added those to his fleet . specifically he was off the coast of the . turn f atoll just east of belize which . wouldn't you know it just happens to be . a little tropical a toll with lagoons . crocodile schley mingo sea turtles the . whole shebang as a bosun and . blackbeard's fleet there's actually. historical precedent that captain hook . would have actually graduated up to the. role of captain on one of those . commandeered ships in the turn of the . toll in the peter pan story it's . specifically the jolly roger and then . from there he drops anchor in neverland . and then gives up his life of pillaging . in exchange for sword fighting little . boys and then outrunning a single . crocodile probably would have been. better off if he just a dubose in there . is though one kind of glaring hole in . this that we can't really ignore if . we're going the history route wouldn't . we also have to ignore the timelines . i mean blackbeard died in 1718 but the. darling family is clearly from the early . 1900's and we even see things in the . movie like the statue of buddha coe . which wasn't installed until 1902 well . it turns out we don't have to ignore the . timeline even that works out under this . theory we know that once you land in . neverland you never never grow old right . that's kind of the whole shtick of this . place well it turns out that neverland . aka the turnip atoll is the exact . historical region believed to contain. the fountain of youth the one geographic . feature in the entire world that would . actually behave and function like a . real-life neverland most of the stories . you hear about the fountain of youth and . history class talked a lot about pulps . de leon who mostly looked for it around . florida the older and much more accurate . historical hunt for it was actually . performed by one de solis and earlier . spanish explorer than old ponce who . spend all of his time looking for the . fountain of youth in the gulf of . honduras due mostly to really bad . spanish historical record keeping ponce. de leon was actually a thousand miles . off the mark of the area that he was . looking for leaving the fountain of . youth squarely off the coast of honduras . and in exactly the location we predict . for neverland so there you have it . everyone book your spring break for the . turn of a toll now because it's the real . location for everlasting childhood talk . about your once-in-a-lifetime vacation. but hey that's just a theory a film . theory. and cut.
