Peter Pan

Today would be the 60th anniversary of that kids film about being a grown up kid, Peter Pan. One of my personal favorites, Peter Pan is probably the perfect Disney film- action, adventure, great backgrounds and animation, and a stellar voice cast. Second star on the right, and on until dawn…

Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn’t grow up, arrives in the London nursery of the Darling children: Wendy, Michael and John. He teaches the children to fly (with the help of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust), then takes them all to Never Land so Wendy can be mother to Peter’s tribe of Lost Boys. In Never Land, there are flirtatious mermaids, savage Indians, and wicked pirates-including Peter’s great nemesis, Captain Hook. A series of dangerous and exciting cloak-and-dagger adventures with Captain Hook and Peter leads to the villain’s ultimate defeat, and Peter takes the Darling children home in the captured pirate ship, which now soars through the sky, thanks to a little contribution from Tinker Bell.
