First of all, I have always been a Peter Pan fan so obviously this movie is going to speak to me more than it will to most people. What distinguishes this movie from previous versions is that it stresses the ~*loneliness*~ of being Peter Pan. The common misperception of Peter Pan is that he's nothing more than a lucky boy who always has fun and is the subject of jealousy for adults and kids alike. This movie, however, presents him as somewhat of a "tragic boy" who cannot live like the rest of us, can never fully comprehend and experience love, and is given countless opportunities to live but rejects it, and therefore, is always looking in through the window that "bars" him out. I'm not saying that the movie makes you feel only sympathy for him, for after all, if he escapes life then he also escapes the unwanted responsibilities which come with adulthood, the frailty of old age, and ultimately death. In the end, you feel both envy yet sadness for Peter, which are the feelings J.M. Barrie intended his book to evoke. You don't need kids to share this movie with-- everyone can identify with Peter, for surely we have all felt lonely or longed for our childhood at some point in our lives.
