Wait, you DON’T already own the digital copy or the Blu-ray? What are you waiting for? We can probably guess and we’re assuming that you fit into one or more of these categories if you don’t already own the Anniversary Edition Of Disney’s Peter Pan On Blu-Ray!
You didn’t know that Peter Pan is available today on Blu-ray
It’s okay. We understand. Just remember that Tuesdays are the day that new movies are available on Blu-ray/DVD on this day each week. This time of year is especially important because Disney Studios has so many amazing movies that have been released in theaters. This means, they’ll soon be headed to Blu-ray soon!
You forgot how amazing Peter Pan really is
Please, let me remind you! It really is one of my favorite Disney classics. Can you believe the original was released in 1953?
“All it takes is faith and trust and a little bit of pixie dust!” If you’ve not shared this movie with your kids, it’s time.
You don’t realize that Peter Pan isn’t just for kids
If you don’t have kids or grandkids with whom to share Peter Pan, we still approve of your buying this movie! Disney films aren’t just for the kiddos, especially Peter Pan. I mean, honestly, who else can relate to never wanting to grow up more than adults can?
You think your old VHS copy is just fine
It’s not. I will not justify this with any further comment. Just stop with the VHS, great-grandma.
You weren’t aware of all the amazing extras
Oh, my gosh, the extras!
The Blu-ray and digital copies of the new Anniversary Edition of Peter Pan will have you filled with reminiscent tears! Here are just a few of the extras included:
- New Signature Collection Bonus
- Stories from Walt’s Office: Walt & Flight – “Think of the happiest things, it’s the same as having wings”. One thing you’ll notice inside Walt Disney’s office are all of the models and pictures of airplanes. Walt loved planes and was an aficionado of flying. As a continuation of the “Stories from Walt’s Office” series, we’ll soar into the world of one of Walt’s favorite pastimes and look at the history behind the company airplane he used to scout Central Florida looking for the perfect place to build his second theme park.
- A “Darling” Conversation with Wendy & John: Kathryn Beaumont and Paul Collins – Join Disney Legend Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Wendy) and Paul Collins (the voice of John) as they reunite for the first time in many years to reminisce and discuss their experiences working on Peter Pan, meeting Walt Disney and learning to fly … literally.

- Growing Up with Nine Old Men – “Peter Pan” is both a story of living with a child’s sense of openness to the world and an acknowledgement that the path to adulthood most often leads away from those qualities. A parallel of sorts to that duality can be found in Walt Disney and his core group of animators, the Nine Old Men, in their lives and in their work. Our short film will look at who they were and the parts they played in one of the most remarkable team of artists that ever worked together.
