Peter Pan Celebrates Blu-ray Release With Some Pretty Cool Concept Art
It’s a good week for Peter Pan lovers, everywhere. Not only can fans of Disney’s classic film purchase the flick on Blu-ray for the first time today, it’s also the film’s sixtieth anniversary. To celebrate, Disney has put together a gallery of Mary Blair’s original concept art for the film, for your viewing pleasure.
If you’re not familiar with Mary Blair, she was an artist and illustrator for Disney back in the day. She’s probably most famous for some of her concept art for films, but if her work looks familiar in another way, she was also responsible for drawing some of the characters later used in the “It’s a Small World” exhibit. Additionally, some of her concept work for films have been used by the company in more recent picture books, including the darling version of Peter Pan.
Of course, the company also had to sneak in the Blu-ray box art for the new release, although I don’t really blame anyone for that slick marketing move. The set offers more than HD picture and some nice cover art, however. Along with plenty of features that have been offered with prior Peter Pan releases, there are several brand new bonus features offered with the Blu-ray release, including a never-before-heard song and a slew of brand new deleted scenes. You can check out the full list of bonus features and decide if Disney’s Peter Pan: Diamond Edition set is the one for you.
