PETER PAN (Theatrical Release USA 1953)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Peter Pan
—highly creative and imaginative—shows the talents of the Disney team as they produce another outstanding animated film that works very well for the child and the adult audience. This treatment of the Peter Pan story is exceptionally well done, worth the watch, and makes an outstanding addition to the family home video collection. Although the film emerges from the decade of the 1950s, there is no lack and no dating or loss of entertainment value in the film...a classic masterpiece.
