We watched the Diamond Edition Blu-ray of Peter Pan this afternoon. Eva enjoyed most of the movie but she has always been afraid of Captain Hook. The only version of Captain Hook that she is not afraid of is the one from Jake and the Never Land Pirates. She was also afraid of the Indians. She loved so many portions of the movie but since she’s a sensitive kid overall she said that she didn’t like the movie. I’m just pretty sure that she couldn’t separate the scenes with Hook with the fact that everything works out in the end.
It had been a long time since I had watched Peter Pan from beginning to end. I enjoyed seeing the movie again and there was much that I had forgotten about what happens beyond the overall story. I had forgotten the Indians as well as the mermaids. I was familiar with the Lost Boys including their names. Andrew has a stuffed Nibs character that he loves cuddling with.
The funny thing is that the Lost Boys are never actually named out loud during the movie. However, if you watch the Bonus material there is an alternate opening to the movie in storyboard form. On the storyboard the Lost Boys are all named. I enjoyed these bonus features because they gave some incredible insight into the movie and also to the men who worked as animators on the film. I watched all of the Bonus Features after the movie.
The Diamond Edition Combo Pack was filled with many great things like a Digital Copy of the movie as well as the Storybook Classics App to download. We’ve had the app and it is a terrific one. I also am a huge fan of the digital copies with movies. I think that every new DVD should come with a Digital Copy. Here’s some special materials that you can download as well as some videos to watch and the official press release of the Diamond Edition DVD.
