Disney's take on Peter Pan meeting Wendy again. As far as Disney sequels go, I actually thought this was one of the better ones. The old. Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy is J. M. Barrie' s most famous . Peter returns briefly, and he meets Mrs. Darling, who has agreed to adopt the Lost Boys. . Most children's adaptations of the play, including the Disney film, omit any romantic themes between Wendy and Peter, but. Follow the leader for a chance to meet the boy who never grew up!

Physical appearance[ edit ] Barrie never described Peter's appearance in detail, even in his novel, leaving it to the imagination of the reader and the interpretation of anyone adapting the character. In the play, Peter's outfit is made of autumn leaves and cobwebs. Barrie mentions in Peter and Wendy that Peter Pan still had all his "first teeth". This costume is exhibited in Barrie's Birthplace. Early editions of adaptations of the story also depict a red costume   but a green costume whether or not made of leaves becomes more usual from the s,  and more so later after the release of Disney's animated movie.
In the Disney films, Peter wears an outfit that consists of a short-sleeved green tunic and tights apparently made of cloth, and a cap with a red feather in it.
He has pointed elf -like ears, brown eyes and his hair is red. In Hookthe character is played as an adult by Robin Williamswith blue eyes and dark brown hair; in flashbacks to him in his youth, his hair is light brown.
In this film his ears appear pointed only when he is Peter Pan, not as Peter Banning. His Pan attire resembles the Disney outfit minus the cap. In the live-action Peter Pan filmhe is portrayed by Jeremy Sumpterwho has blond hair and blue-green eyes.
His outfit is made of leaves and vines. Barrie created his character based on his older brother, David, who died in an ice-skating accident the day before his 14th birthday. His mother and brother thought of him as forever a boy. Although his age is not stated in Barrie's play or novelthe book says that he still had all his baby teeth. In other ways, the character appears to be older, about 12—13 years old. Personality[ edit ] Peter is an exaggerated stereotype of a boastful and careless boy.
He claims greatness, even when such claims are questionable such as congratulating himself when Wendy re-attaches his shadow. In the play and book, Peter symbolises the selfishness of childhood, and is portrayed as being forgetful and self-centred.
Peter Pan ( film) - Wikipedia
Peter has a nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude, and is fearlessly cocky when it comes to putting himself in danger. Barrie writes that when Peter thought he was going to die on Marooners' Rock, he felt scared, yet he felt only one shudder. With this blithe attitude, he says, "To die will be an awfully big adventure". In the play, the unseen and unnamed narrator ponders what might have been if Peter had stayed with Wendy, so that his cry might have become, "To live would be an awfully big adventure!
In Peter and Wendy, it is explained that Peter must forget his own adventures and what he learns about the world in order to stay childlike. Peter's ability to fly is explained, but inconsistently. In The Little White Bird, he is able to fly because he is said to be part bird, like all babies. Six months later, during a storyboard meeting, Kinney presented a two-and-a-half hour presentation, in which Walt sat silently and stated, "You know, I've been thinking about Cinderella.
In order to restore the studio to full financial health, he expressed his desire to return to producing full-length animated films. Walt felt the characters in Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan were too cold while Cinderella contained elements similar to Snow White and decided to greenlit the project. For instance in one version, it was Mrs. Darling who found Peter Pan's shadow and showed it to Mr.
Darling as in the original play. In another version of the film, Nana went to Neverland with Pan and the Darling children, and the story was told through her eyes.
In other interpretations of the story, John Darling was left behind for being too serious, practical and boring, but story artist Ralph Wright convinced Disney to have John go with the others to Never Land. However, Walt felt that this was against Tinker Bell's character and that she had "gone too far" and changed it to Captain Hook kidnapping and persuading Tinker Bell to tell him.

There is a point in Barrie's play where Captain Hook puts poison in Peter's dose of medicine and Tinker Bell saves Peter by drinking the poison herself only to be revived by the applause by the theater audience.
After much debate Disney discarded this fearing it would be difficult to achieve in a film. Ultimately, these scenes were cut for pacing reasons. Margaret Kerry received a call to audition to serve as the live-action reference for Tinker Bell. Dupree was interviewed and eventually won the role,  in which he provided reference for the flying and action sequences.
Bobby Driscoll also served as the live-action reference model for Peter Pan, although it was mainly used for the close-up scenes. Hans Conreid completed the voice work over the course of a few days, and served as the live-action reference for two-and-a-half years. He told Kahl that "[t]hey are too masculine, too old.
There is something wrong there. What's wrong is that they don't have any talent in the place," Kahl replied. The characterization of Hook proved to be conflicting as Thomas claimed story artist Ed Penner viewed him as "a very foppish, not strong, dandy-type, who loved all the finery.
Kind of a con man. I think we better wait and let Frank go on a little further. To best capture his comedic yet fear-ridden, sycophantic personality, Johnston used a variation of the Dwarf design from Snow White, and had Smee blink numerously.
His former mentor, Fred Moore, worked in Johnston's unit as a character animator on minor scenes for Smee. Moore also animated the mermaids and the Lost Boys. Moore died the following day at the St.

I'm sure the youngsters who grow up with cartoons will be right at home with all the characters. The music score is fine, highlighting the constant buzz of action and comedy, but the songs are less impressive than usually encountered in such a Disney presentation. Mooreone of the executive producers of the re-imagined Battlestar Galacticahas cited this film as the inspiration for the series' theme of the cyclical nature of timeusing the film's opening line, "All of this has happened before and it will all happen again," as a key tenet of the culture's scripture.
The website's critical consensus reads, "Though it doesn't delve deeply into the darkness of J. Barrie's tale, Peter Pan is a heartwarming, exuberant film with some great tunes.
