Peter Pan in Neverland


Classical Academy | On This Day...


On 5 February 1953 Walt Disney released the fourteenth film in its repertoire: Peter Pan. Based on the play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up by J.M. Barrie this animated movie had been one of Walt Disney's favourite stories and he had wished to turn it into a movie ever since 1935. Rumour has it that Tinker Bell's design is based on Marilyn Monroe.

 

Peter Pan - the boy who never grows up - can be very hot-headed, but he's also commanding and brave. He can be both mean at times and caring, and he most famously was responsible for the loss of Captain Hook's left hand. Join Peter Pan for a musical trip to Neverland with these fantastic pieces...
