Thank you, Disney for the beautiful Pixie Dust that landed me in Los Angeles to celebrate this momentous occasion!
The day I ran around Disney Studios sweating my butt off in the name of Peter Pan fun, I realized I didn’t know as much about this classic Disney film as I’ve always pretended to know. As a matter of fact, I realized that most of my Peter Pan knowledge comes from the movie “Hook” which is not animated or a classic.
It’s a classic to me, of course, but it’s not the original Disney Animated film.
I know I’ve seen Peter Pan, but I’m not sure we owned it on VHS which means it wasn’t on the incredible loop of films we watched growing up. The fact that I‘m completely Peter Pan clueless was brought to my attention when our group had to sit down at a table faced with some facts related to the classic film. It was worse than taking the SATs, y’all!
When the 65th Anniversary Blu-Ray landed on my doorstep, I was so excited to sit down and watch it with the kids.
And then I had to make dinner. Fortunately, it captivated the children and they didn’t move until the movie was over, so dinner didn’t burn. At least there’s that. Then life got out of hand and now we’re out of town but I cannot wait to get home and see it with them.
About those Bonus Features
I love checking out the bonus features on a BluRay, and yes, I’m one of those freaks who will pay more money for more bonus features. Being that Styles is into film and theatre, he enjoys watching the bonus features with me. It’s a great way for my teenager and I to connect.
Here are the bonus features you have to look forward to on the Peter Pan 55th Anniversary BluRay, available June 5!
- Stories From Walt’s Office: Walt & Flight
- A Darling Conversation With Wendy & John: Kathryn Beaumont and Paul Collins
- You Can Fly – Oke (Lyric Video)
- Never Smile At A Crocodile – Oke (Lyric Video)

Don’t miss this classic before it flies back to the vault and your only hope of getting a copy is to pay too much on eBay!
