Captain Henry Morgan was a big deal long before he landed the gig of a lifetime as mascot of the Captain Morgan brands of spiced rum and spirits. As a Welsh privateer who fought for the English against the Spanish in the Caribbean in the 17th century, he amassed huge fleets and great wealth in raids along the Spanish Main. He was knighted by King Charles II of England and died a rich man in Jamaica.

When Captain Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan played by Robin Williams must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit to challenge his old enemy.
