The Film Theorists on YouTube have dug so deep into Peter Pan, that they have found Neverland. It turns out that Neverland is just off the coast of Belize in Central America. Peter Pan’s Neverland is in the Turneffe Atoll.
Peter Pan fans and wanderers can find the Turneffe Atoll just 30 kilometers off the coast of Belize. Known for its rich marine life and pristine beaches, Turneffe Atoll is one of the three atolls in the Belize Barrier Reef.
The Film Theorists team managed to pinpoint the exact location of Neverland by using clues from Disney’s $87 million box office hit Peter Pan and J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan novel in 1911. The Film Theorists also looked into the history of Captain Hook and related him with Blackbeard the notorious pirate, who was in search of the Fountain of Youth. The Film Theorists also based their search from the pirate film, Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, released in May 2011. The Film Theorists said that the characters in the Pirates of the Caribbean film were also in search of the Fountain of Youth, and the theorists also based the Neverland location hunt from the setting of the Pirates of the Caribbean film.
There isn’t much history recorded about the Turneffe Atoll. Not much conquerors and nomads have written much about the Turneffe Atoll. However, there is a recorded incident on the Turneffe Atoll, and coincidentally it is related to the theory of the Film Theorists. Pirate Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, spent the winter of 1717–1718 harassing ships sailing to and from the port of Vera Cruz, Mexico and traversing the Bay of Honduras. On April 1718, at Turneffe Atoll, Blackbeard captured the ten-gun logwood cutting sloop Adventure and forced its captain, David Herriot, to join him. Also on board was Edward Robinson, the ship’s gunner, who would later be involved in the Battle of Cape Fear River. Blackbeard then made Israel Hands captain of the Adventure and began sailing for North Carolina.
