Action & Adventure movie directed by Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske, and Wilfred Jackson

PETER PAN remains one of Disney's most fondly-remembered films. Despite appearing in the same decade as Mary Martin's Broadway and television version, it is neither lessened nor ignored in comparison.

Peter Pan (voiced by Disney's resident juvenile lead Bobby Driscoll) takes young Wendy (Kathryn Beaumont) along with Michael and John on a flight of fancy to Neverland, where you can never grow old.

In their fantastic adventure, Peter and the Lost Boys battle the nefarious Captain Hook (Hans Conried), the bumbling Crocodile and the bloodthirsty Indians.

The story deals with the abandoned dreams of childhood, a child's wish to remain young and the resentment of having to grow up. James Barrie's story speaks to the child in all of us.

This beautiful new DVD reissue coincides with Disney's new sequel, RETURN TO NEVERLAND, and includes a fantastic audio commentary, still galleries, DVD storybook and featurettes.
