To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Disney’s Peter Pan, Disney is releasing the Peter Pan Diamond Edition on Blu-ray on February 5, 2013. It has new digital restoration and unparalleled high-definition picture and sound!
Last night, my son Niko and I got all cozy on the couch with plenty of goodies to watch Peter Pan together. I had seen it before when I was a kid, but it had been a long time since then. So this almost felt like a new movie to me. This would be Niko’s first time watching it and he was so excited. It brought back child-hood memories for me and it was such a great movie to share with Niko. He loved it as much as I did. When he had to get up he made me pause it so he wouldn’t miss a single second of it. This is definitely a classic must watch for the entire family.
