Disney Television Animation is bringing fans a new cartoon series, mixing CG animation with the world of Peter Pan. The results; Jake and the Never Land Pirates. The original music-filled series follows Jake and his pirate friends (and parrot!) as they travel through Never Land in search of lost treasures. The group learns teamwork and tests their problem solving skills to outsmart Captain Hook and his ever-present lackey, Smee. And since Captain Hook is one of the scariest cartoon characters ever, you know it wont be easy! Look out for the series either late this year or early next.
“Jake and the Never Land Pirates will introduce preschoolers to the excitement of Never Land, an imaginative, engaging pirate world for kids and a wonderfully memorable one for their parents,” says Nancy Kanter, senior VP Playhouse Disney Worldwide. “Comedic foils Captain Hook and his well-meaning sidekick, Smee, will continue to amuse young kids, as the enthusiastic Jake leads his team of kid pirates on adventures that model teamwork for our young viewers.”
