I have a huge soft spot for Walt Disney’s Peter Pan. Not only did my dad love the film when he was a kid and I too adored it as a child, but my own daughter totally fell in love with the 1953 classic Peter Pan. I can not tell you how many times we’ve watching the film over the years and she has Peter Pan art on her walls, was Peter Pan one year for Halloween and we always head for the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland first thing.
Yes, our family really, really loves Peter Pan. Doing the math, that is three generations who have traveled to Neverland with Peter, Michael, Johnathan and Wendy proving just how timeless this film is.
This year Walt Disney’s Peter Pan celebrates it’s 60th birthday with a new Diamond Edition DVD and Blu-Ray release. And with that comes some incredible opportunities for those who write about these sort of things for a living. It was an absolute thrill to be given the opportunity to chat, for ten glorious minutes, with the one and only Kathryn Beaumont, the woman who was the voice talent for Peter Pan’s Wendy (she also was Alice in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland). We talked about Wendy, Walt and how often she returns to Neverland.
