“Peter Pan” Soars Into the Walt Disney Signature Collection

In celebration of its 65th anniversary, Disney’s beloved flight of fantasy, “Peter Pan,” joins the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, landing in homes on Digital and Movies Anywhere on May 29 and on Blu-ray June 5. With a little faith, trust and pixie dust, every member of the family will let their imagination soar on this epic adventure to Never Land, sparkling with legendary animation, extraordinary music and both all-new and classic bonus features.

The Walt Disney Signature Collection edition of “Peter Pan” invites adventures of all ages to believe in magic once again and experience a timeless treasure from Disney’s golden age of animation that has stirred the hearts and imaginations of moviegoers worldwide since its original 1953 release. The Signature Collection edition offers over two hours of classic bonus features plus never-before-seen extras, including the latest installment of “Stories from Walt’s Office,” which explores Walt’s love of flying and the company planes; a nostalgic reunion between Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Wendy) and Paul Collins (the voice of John); and new “Oke” renditions of the classic song “You Can Fly” and deleted song “Never Smile at a Crocodile” accompanied by on-screen lyrics and the film’s unforgettable animated characters.

In “Peter Pan,” fantastic adventures await the Darling children—Wendy, John and Michael—when Peter Pan, the hero of their stories, whisks them away to the magical world of Never Land.  After flying with Peter and the delightfully impish Tinker Bell past the “second star to the right and straight on till morning,” they explore the enchanted island and Peter’s secret hideout with the Lost Boys, and leap into high-flying battles with swashbuckling pirates and the infamous villain Captain Hook.

“Peter Pan” is the seventh title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. The film takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio,” “Bambi,” “The Lion King” and “Lady and the Tramp.”

My Thoughts

Peter Pan is the delightful tale of a young boy who never wants to grow. He lives in the Never Never Land, but occasionally visits our world. When a little girl named Wendy finds his shadows, they form a friendship. Soon Peter is bringing Wendy and her brother to Never Land where they meet fairies, pirates, mermaids and many more fun characters. 

Peter Pan is such an awesome classic. My mother and I both grew up watching this firm, and it  is wonderful to be able to sit down now with three generations who all enjoy it. There is magic, adventure, and beautiful music throughout. This special addition only includes some wonderful bonus items including deleted songs, a look backstage, and sing-a-longs. 

To help celebrate the release of the signature collection blu-ray, Disney also sent my kids some fun Peter Pan swag. This plush Nana was the perfect companion to snuggle up with while we watched the firm.

To make things even more fun, we got to make glitter necklaces filled with Tinker Bell's fairy dust.  This was a great way to get us in the mood for a little fairy magic. If you want to grab a copy of Peter Pan, look for it in stores nationwide starting June 5th.

I have always loved Peter Pan since I was a young child. The Walt Disney Signature Collection would be wonderful to have.
