Peter Pan was a favorite of mine when I was growing up. Before the kids got out of school for the summer they were in the school’s first drama play which was Peter Pan Jr. They had so much fun and the play was fantastic.
Originally released in 1953, Disney’s animated version of ‘Peter Pan’ remains one of the studio’s most popular classics and, like the title character itself, seems to never grow old. Peter Pan can be seen on Digital and Movies Anywhere beginning May 29th and on Blu-ray June 5th. With a little faith, trust and pixie dust, every member of the family will let their imagination soar on this epic adventure to Never Land, sparkling with legendary animation, extraordinary music and both all-new and classic bonus features.
The Signature Collection edition offers over two hours of classic bonus features plus never-before-seen extras, including the latest installment of “Stories from Walt’s Office,” which explores Walt’s love of flying and the company planes; a nostalgic reunion between Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Wendy) and Paul Collins (the voice of John); and new “Oke” renditions of the classic song “You Can Fly” and deleted song “Never Smile at a Crocodile” accompanied by on-screen lyrics and the film’s unforgettable animated characters.
Peter Pan awaits the Darling children—Wendy, John and Michael, the hero of their stories, whisks them away to the magical world of Never Land. After flying with Peter and the delightfully impish Tinker Bell past the “second star to the right and straight on till morning,” they explore the enchanted island and Peter’s secret hideout with the Lost Boys and leap into high-flying battles with swashbuckling pirates and the infamous villain Captain Hook.
Inside our package included the Anniversary Edition of Disney’s Peter Pan movie pack, a soft and warm silk touch throw of the Never Land, a Wendy Plush, and a Moon Light. There is nothing like a warm, cozy blanket on the couch and my one of all-time favorite Disney movies that I can watch again and again with the kids.
In Peter Pan movie pack it has bonus features for each edition.

Growing Up with Nine Old Men – “Peter Pan” is both a story of living with a child’s sense of openness to the world and an acknowledgment that the path to adulthood most often leads away from those qualities. A parallel of sorts to that duality can be found in Walt Disney and his core group of animators, the Nine Old Men, in their lives and in their work. Our short film will look at who they were and the parts they played in one of the most remarkable team of artists that ever worked together.
Deleted Song: “The Pirate’s Song” – Original demo recording of the song played over concept art.
Deleted Song: “Never Smile at a Crocodile” – With music played over static concept art of the crocodile from Peter Pan.
Deleted Song: “The Boatswain Song” – With music played over static concept art of Captain Hook and his crew.
Deleted Scene: “The Journey Home” – A proposed alternate ending where Peter asks the Lost Boys to return home with Wendy and the other children.
Deleted Scene: “Alternate Arrival” – A deleted scene where Wendy and the children are initially attacked by the Lost Boys because Tinker Bell tells them that Wendy is holding Peter captive. We also see in this version of the story that Nana the dog travels to Never Land with Wendy and the children.
