My Take on the DVD
For anyone that is been following me for some time you know how much of a fan and my family is when it comes to Disney and their movies. As you can probably guess, we were very excited when we heard that they were re-releasing Peter Pan from their vault. You see, my kids have never seen this movie as of yet, they have heard of the movie, but they have never seen it yet. With that in mind, when we received it, we went about making some family popcorn and sitting down for a great film (IMHO). My kids were spellbound. They loved the movie. They particularly love the fact that the kids were able to fly, and they actually hope themselves to be able to fly one day as well. They also loved Tinkerbell (as they had seen her before in her own movies). All-in-all and my kids  love the movie and wanted to see it again the next day. The movie itself was very well made and I love that the fact that there was a previously never released a song within this version.
