Peter Pan was re-released on video for its 45th anniversary on March 3, 1998. When announced in October 1997, the video was slated to be available only for 45 days, thus returning to the Disney Vault on April 16, 1998. It was later released on DVD on November 23, 1999.


Bursting with pixie dust, adventure and song, Disney's 14th animated masterpiece brings the timeless story of Peter Pan to magical life and reawakens the child in all of us.

The fantastical film begins when the hero of Wendy, John and Michael's bedtime stories - Peter Pan, the boy who refuses to grow up - returns to the nursery and invites them on a magical journey to Never Land. With the help of tinker Bell, his feisty sidekick, a dazzling shower of pixie dust and some happy thoughts, Peter teaches them to fly. Off they soar to an enchanted island filled with wonder and adventure. Before they know it, they're knee-deep in a high-flying battle with swashbuckling pirates, led by Peter's archenemy, Captain Hook - Whose time is nearly up against a ticktocking crocodile.
