After a week of counting down the days, the occasion has finally arrived. Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Disney classic tale Peter Pan. Not only is this well-known as a beloved attraction in the Disney theme parks, but the original film also lives on to stand the test of time, entertaining generation after generation flawlessly. The story of magic, adventure, and friendship is timeless, speaking unwaveringly to all audiences through mischievous characters in a pixie-dusted setting of pure escapism.
Here is a little bit of trivia for you as well. Did you know it’s said to be that Pixie Dust was added to the storyline by JM Barrie as a requirement for flying after reports of children injuring themselves while attempting to fly from their beds? Had it not been for those kids taking imagination into their own hands, we wouldn’t know what Pixie Dust was today!
Happy 70th, Peter Pan! May we always journey with you, second star from the right, and straight on till morning!
