A pet project of Walt Disney's since 1939, this animated version of James M. Barrie's Peter Pan reached full fruition in 1953. Eschewing much of Barrie's gentle whimsy (not to mention the more sinister aspects of the leading character), Disney and his staff fashioned a cheery, tuneful cartoon extravaganza, which cost $4 million and reaped several times that amount. The straightforward story concerns the Darling family, specifically the children: Wendy, Michael and John. Wendy enjoys telling her younger siblings stories about the mythical Peter Pan, the little boy who never grew up. One night, much to everyone's surprise, Peter flies into the Darling nursery, in search of his shadow, which Wendy had previously captured. Sprinkling the kids with magic pixie dust, Peter flies off to Never-Never Land, with Wendy, Michael and John following behind. Once in Peter's domain, the children are terrorized by Captain Hook, who intends to capture Peter and do away with him. After rescuing Indian princess Tiger Lily from Captain Hook, Peter must save the children, not to mention his own "Lost Boys," from the diabolical pirate captain. In addition, he must contend with the jealousy of tiny sprite Tinker Bell, who doesn't like Wendy one little bit. Breaking with several traditions, Peter had been played by a girl in all previous incarnations, Tinker Bell had always been depicted by a shaft of light, etc ... this "Disneyized" version of Peter Pan may not be authentic James Barrie, but it has never failed to enthrall audiences of all ages. Adding to the fun are the spirited voiceover performances by Bobby Driscoll (Peter), Hans Conried (Captain Hook and Mr. Darling), Kathryn Beaumont (Wendy) and Bill Thompson (Smee), and the sprightly songs by Sammy Cahn, Sammy Fain, Ollie Wallace, Erdman Penner, Ted Sears, Winston Hibler, Frank Churchill and Jack Lawrence.

I received a worn out, used dvd. The item I chose never said it was used. After sending an email to the Seller, I never received an email back and Barnes and Noble said they can't do anything about it. Poor customer service.
YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!! NOT ONLY IS BOOT-LEG MOVIES AGAINST THE LAW. BUT THAT YOU FEEL IT IS O.K. TO STEAL MONEY FROM PEOPLE AND PIRATING MOVIES FOR A BUCK IS O.K. MAKES ME SICK.
Everyone should have a library of Disney classics for their children and grandchildren to enjoy. This story is charming and has Tinkerbell, the little fairy that enchants little girls everywhere.
It was in great condition and fast delivery.
Very disappointed in what was to be a "new" Peter Pan dvd. While the item was shrink wrapped, it was clearly a photocopied cover and labels on the two dvds inside. No paper dvd guide was inside the cover either. I was very disappointed that the gift I gave my daughter for Christmas ended up not being a true copy of Peter Pan.
Although not quite as painterly or detailed as the the cartoon features of the late 30's and early 40's, this spirited, unpretentious adaptation of the Barrie classic deserves a high place in the Diney canon for merely the 'flying over London'' sequence alone; the remainder of the film never quite matches that segment despite the fine quality of the animation. This was the first movie I ever saw and it holds a special place in my heart.
i love this movie, because i feel like tinker bell in real life. i feel like im three foot shorter than everybody and no one can see how good i look in a mini skirt.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!!!! Yes, I am pre-ordering! Finally!! Besides the Little Mermaid this was the other movie I was desperately waiting for to come out in a 2 disc edition. I absolutely loved this movie as a kid, I absolutely love it now. March 06, can't come soon enough!!
It's been so long since I had seen this movie! It's even better than before since I'm able to reminisce about my childhood and sings the songs along with the movie. Go and share it with the world!
WOW! By far the greatest story ever told! Every time I watch this film I am wisked away to a magical world unlike any other. I can fly, fight pirates, & hang out with all the lost boys. I think it's beautifl to think of a land were you never have to grow up and can play with as many children you want to untill you all get tired and go to sleep together. Truely a fantastic adventure of wonder!
This is a A+ fil. It is a treat for all ages it was a perfect film in the 20th centruy and it stands as strong and tall, this centruy.
What can you say about a classic? It's a classic for a reason! Great fun! These Disney movies can be a bit scary for the wee little ones, but everybody should own them before they go back to the vault. I purchased this for my eight month old little girl to enjoy in a few years down the road. I will save it, and when she is old enough I will give it to her. After all, I think these movies go into the Disney vault for ten years, so if you want it, get it now before it's gone.
I purchased this DVD set for my 3 1/2 year old son. He loves the story, the characters and the action. It is the movie he requests nearly every evening and wants to take along with him every day. I will admit I enjoy watching it with him too. The movie has also inspired him to play Hook and Pan with his mates and tell his own pirate stories. It has sparked his imagination and enchanted him. We have also rented the Return to Neverland and Tinker Bell movies which compliment the original story.
One of my favorite Disney movies.Peter Pan is a definite must have for any Disney movie fan.
As any Disney classic how can you not like it or learn from it. Disney classics are always recomended.
