Later this week, on February 5th, a true Disney classic will celebrate 70 years of a prime position in our hearts. It’s a story that brought us a front-row seat into absolute imagination as we explored Neverland and outsmarted a world with pirates and adventure. Peter Pan is a legendary tale that changed how generations of audiences to come would think about fantasy, adventure, and the London night sky.
The film debuted on February 5th of 1953, based on a 1904 play called Peter Pan. The film version includes colorful characters like Captain Hook as Pan’s arch nemesis, Tinkerbell as the mischievous and sassy sidekick, friends Wendy, John, and Peter, as well as the co-adventurers, The Lost Boys. The film was such a bit that it inspired many future stories and attractions throughout the Disney Media Universe and Disney Parks.
If you are looking for a family movie to enjoy this week, take Peter Pan for a spin and remember what a truly exceptional experience this movie is.
