I always thought Peter Pan was supposed to be about childhood innocence. Pan and Tinkerbell were not sweet and cuddly, they both came across as selfish, cold and really unlikable bullies.

plays as less of a child fantasy of soaring adventure than it does as a retrograde narcissistic adult male fantasy of being desired and pursued by every female in the room

Not an especially mature film, probably the most "kiddie movie" of all the 1950s Disney features.

Definitely a Disney classic but misses out much of the darker side of J.M.Barrie's fantasy tale.

Disney's depersonalizing habit of putting different teams in charge of different sections of the story really shows up here.

Ornamented with some bright and lilting tunes, it is a lively feature-length Technicolor excursion into a world that glows with an exhilarating charm and a gentle joyousness.

I have to give a special shout-out to Tinkerbell, a Disney creation that I never fully appreciated as a child.

A cavalcade of classic songs, unforgettable moments, gorgeous handcrafted animation and, unfortunately, some racial stereotypes.
