Product Description

Let your dreams take flight with Walt Disney's original classic. PETER PAN soars to new heights in the magical 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD with an all-new digital restoration. Fantastic adventures await Wendy and her brothers when Peter Pan, the hero of their stories, whisks them away to the magical world of Never Land. After following Peter and his feisty sidekick Tinker Bell past "the second star to the right and straight on till morning," they explore the island and Peter's secret hideout with the rambunctious Lost Boys and leap into high-flying battles with swashbuckling pirates and the infamous Captain Hook! Bursting with fantasy, adventure, and pixie dust, this 2-disc Platinum Edition includes three all-new games in Camp Never Land, deleted scenes, a new discovery -- in which Walt Disney reveals why he made PETER PAN -- and much more.

Additional Features

The Platinum Edition of Peter Pan is absolutely packed with special features that include everything from Walt Disney's own words about why he made Peter Pan to interviews with animators, producers, historians, and film critics; games; activities; and songs. Like the 2002 Peter Pan Special Edition, the Platinum Edition offers an excellent commentary track hosted by Roy Disney that features interviews with some of Disney animation's "nine old men" like Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas, historians, voice talent including Kathryn Beaumont, character models, and film critic Leonard Maltin. More "backstage" features include a 15-minute "making of" segment that looks at 1940's and 1950's animation technology and the challenges posed by transforming J. M. Barrrie's well-known story, stage play, and silent film into a believable animated film and an 8-1/2 minute featurette that focuses on Tinker Bell's character, its animation, and Margaret Kerry's experiences as a real-life model for the character. Most intriguing is a 7-1/2 minute featurette based on a 1953 magazine article that provides a rare chance to hear, in Walt Disney's own words, his thoughts, motivations, and ultimate goal of creating a children's world where adults and children could feel they belonged in Peter Pan. Equally fascinating is the 21-minute "The Peter Pan That Almost Was" segment detailing the developmental stages of the Peter Pan story and the multiple versions considered as Walt Disney and his crew strove to make the most powerful film possible. The 1952 featurette "The Peter Pan Story" explores multiple story telling mediums and details various stages of the animation process including drawing, layout, story boarding, animation, background art, and sound effects. Children ages 3 and older will delight in a host of appealing special features created just for them that include "Peter Pan's Virtual Flight" through London, two read alongs, songs with or without on-screen lyrics, deleted songs, music videos by Paige O'hara and T-Squad, Sudoku challenges with multiple difficulty levels, and interactive "Train to be a Lost Boy," "Tarrrget Practice," and "Tink's Fantasy Flight" games. Disney's Peter Pan is a truly classic, intergenerational film and the abundance of special features included in this Platinum Edition make it a must have for all ages. --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars THERE IS NO WIDESCREEN VERSION ! December 31, 1999
Format:DVD
I can't add anything to the praise for this film. If you love Disney films, this is considered one of the classics. I just wish to briefly comment on the criticism of the lack of a widescreen version. The first widescreen film, The King and I, was released in 1956. Previous to this all films were full screen. Peter Pan, released in 1953, and a good many of the Disney classics are only available in full screen aspect. This is not the Pan and Scan alteration of an original Widescreen format. The way this film is presented on the DVD is the original aspect ratio; Nothing has been altered. I have seen this so called criticism leveled against many Hollywood classics such as Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz. Please, get off your high horse and stop whinning about how Disney or whatever movie company is ripping you off. None of these films ever had a widescreen version to begin with. Do a little research and you could be content to enjoy these classics in the aspect ratio they were orginally presented in. Thats all I wish to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Movie! November 13, 2004
Format:DVD
The children in the Darling family love story about Peter Pan. So naturally when he shows up one night looking for his missing shadow, they're thrilled to go back with him to Never Land. There, they face Indians and "the world's most famous crook," Captain Hook. Will they survive their adventures with the boy who never wants to grow up?

I have always had a fascination with this story. As a kid I remember checking the Disney picture book version out of the library week after week. When I finally got to see it, I was enthralled. There is just something magical about the story. It's partially the coming together of all the boyhood adventures in one place. Mermaids, Indians, and Pirates? What more could any boy want? And, of course, the ability to fly. The "You can fly" sequence over London is one of my all time favorites. The whole movie really is animated very well with a story that movies quickly from place to place with lots of humor to keep everyone entertained and gorgeous animation of the fanciful Never Land.

This special edition is worth tracking down. The picture (original full frame) is sharp and the surround sound is very nice. Extras include a documentary on the making of the movie and a promotional theatrical featurette from the original release. The "audio commentary" is unique. Hosted by Roy Disney, it consists of selections from interviews of the voice talent, live action models, animators, and animation historians. While not your usual commentary, it's fascinating stuff and well worth a listen. Finally, there's a treasure hunt game and DVD storybook for kids.

This movie still brings a smile to my face and probably always will. Maybe my friends are right when they say I love this movie so much because I always wanted to be Peter Pan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be careful to order the right VERSION October 3, 2005
By nplette
Format:DVD
Disney's Peter Pan requires no introduction. However, the "Special Edition" includes several Asian languages in addition to English, but each time you put the DVD in, you have to go to the settings menu and turn off the subtitles if you don't want them to come on automatically. If you are an English speaker and want the regular North American edition, buy the "Limited Issue".

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful Walt Disney animated classic March 9, 2007
Format:DVD
My young niece Sarah and nephew Caleb are terrified of Walt Disney's 1953 animated feature, PETER PAN---the crocodile, a band of pirates, Captain Hook with a hook hand, a rock slide that seems to momentarily kill Tinker Bell. The movie scared them so much in their younger days that they don't want to see it again, and neither does their mother. I, however, as a 56 year old film scholar find the film delightful--a boy who can fly and refuses to grow up leads the Darling kids over nighttime London and to Never-Land, where they all get to fight with indians and pirates. There is a Skull Rock, and a pirate cove, and a beautiful pirate ship. It is all just marvelous for adults. As for the crocodile, he is so stupid, boredly watching Hook fight with Peter until Hook falls into the water. And Hook is an irresistible pirate for kids of all ages. I love when Peter is on a mountain top pretending to be Hook and giving orders to dopey Smee in a boat below.

The glories of this animated film are that it is animated so the wires don't show in spectacular flying sequences, again highlighted by "You Can Fly" as the gang flies over 1904 nighttime London, plus the prologue bedroom and all over Never-Land. Hook has a real metal hook he deliciously screws on. Tinker Bell is a real, jealous fairy and not a spotlight on stage. And this is the one time Peter is played, satisfyingly and curiously, by a boy and not a grown woman, like Mary Martin on TV or Betty Bronson in a wonderful 1924 silent film version. Also unlike, say, the Martin version, you can have spectacular fight sequences and the Lost Boys and Darling kids tied up by the indians, not a lot of wires and painted backdrops.

By Jake
Format:DVD
Disney's "Peter Pan" is one of their most enchantingly delightful animated features, telling the story of how Peter Pan whisked Wendy, John, and Michael off to his home in Never Land for a magical adventure none of them would ever forget fighting Captin Hook and his ruthless band of pirates.
Although the original 1999 "Limited Issue" DVD lacked bonus features (with the only one being the option to watch the movie in French), fans of the film have been rewarded for waiting with this Special Edition. The movie looks better then it did on any previous release, and that's reason enough to buy this masterpiece. But the extra features -- oh! True, this disc pales in comparison to the Platinum Edition release of "Snow White" (unfortunately "Peter Pan" is NOT one of the nine other Platinum Editions to be issued over the next decade) but for one disc I'd say they did a pretty nice job. "You Can Fly: The Making of Peter Pan" was also provided on the 1998 45th Anniversary Limited Edition VHS, but it's worthy of another watch. After seeing the movie again, start with that, and then see the wonderful 13-minute 1952 promotional featurette "The Peter Pan Story." They're even more exellent when viewed together.
Next, head back to the movie, but turn on the audio commentary this time. Hosted by Roy E. Disney, it provides some really amazing information on the film I never knew before. Other commentators include Walt Disney himself (pieced together from old interviews, etc.), some of his Nine Old Men, other vetran animators, Kathryn Beaumont (who provided Wendy's voice in the feature), and of course noted film critic Lenoard Multin, among others. Next, take a few minutes to examine the vast visiual gallery. Wonderful stuff in there for fans and casuial viewers alike.

Peter Pan Platinum Edition or older Special Edition
I own both editions, so maybe I can shed some light for you. It's completely up to you if you want to upgrade. The Platinum Edition features a new digital restoration and a new home theater mix, so the picture is definitely better, the colors are much more vibrant and the picture is cleaned up... Read More

Does the Amazon order come with the carboard slipcase
I purchased mine at Wal-Mart and mine came with the slipcase. Amazon should be sending the orders with them on since they come from Disney itself. If you didn't get it I would think maybe Amazon took them out of the slipcase for some reason. Or maybe they didn't get them with the slipcases.
