This year out of the Disney vault comes the animated classic of the boy who never grew up. Sixty years after its original release, Disney has given us The Peter Pan Diamond Edition. This digitally remastered version breathes new life into the classic story and colorful characters while adding enough additional content to entice those all too familiar with the movie to give it another look.
My 6 year old daughter absolutely loves Peter Pan, and subsequently made me watch it with her half a dozen times over the two days after it arrived in the mail. Needless to say, I had significant time to examine the quality from every angle. The audio and video quality was extremely well done and looks stunning even on large format HD televisions. It was very hard to tell that this was animated over 60 years ago.
Thankfully, after our 6th consecutive viewing, I was able to convince my little princess to let me explore the rest of the Blu-Ray, and check out the extras. Disney stocked the Peter Pan Diamond Edition with tons of extra content like audio commentary, extra songs, and the documentary “Growing Up With Nine Old Men”. But I do have to say my particular favorite new feature is the pirate filled interactive pause screen. You will definitely need to take some time to pause the movie and experience this feature.
All in all, I would have to say that Disney definitely hit it out of the park with this Diamond Edition release. It is not only an exceptionally well done version of this classic movie, but it has a wealth of additional content that both entertains and gives insight into the amazing people who helped bring this story, and countless others to life. I would highly recommend it for Disney fans old and young alike.
Peter Pan Diamond Edition is out now, and is really a must own for anyone who always wanted to travel to Neverland!Follow us for more updates:
