Peter Pan

Trivia: Disney's Peter Pan was the first Peter Pan ever to be played by a boy. Traditionally Pan had always been played by women.


Trivia: The tune played whenever the crocodile approaches originally had lyrics. The song was titled "Never Smile at a Crocodile".


Trivia: Many people believe that Tinkerbell's curvaceous body was based on Marilyn Monroe, but it was actually based on actress Margaret Kerry who auditioned for the part.


Trivia: Following tradition, the same man whose voice is Captain Hook's is also Mr. Darling's. Since the very first showing of Peter Pan, the same actor who plays Captain Hook also plays Mr. Darling.


Trivia: In front of the Darling House in London, a cluster of trees form a "Hidden Mickey."


Trivia: Peter Pan was the first story to ever use the name Wendy. There was no record of any girls in the world ever being named Wendy before the book.


Trivia: A hidden Mickey can be seen behind Captain Hook's chair when he gets sick.


Trivia: Walt Disney originally planned Peter Pan to be his second animated feature film after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). However, it required four years of negotiations to finally obtain the rights. The studio began working on the story and character designs in 1939, but after the United States joined World War II in December 1941, the studio was made to make war propaganda films, and Peter Pan was among several projects to be put to one side.

Continuity mistake: In the duel at Skull Rock, after Peter leads Captain Hook onto thin air, Hook drops his sword and scrambles to grab hold of the cliff again. But when we see Hook's reaction to the approaching crocodile, you can see his sword back in its sheath. (00:51:50)

More quotes from Peter Pan

Question: Why do the other pirates bully Smee? What do they have against him?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: He's too much of a bumbler and too cheery (for example when he tells the crew "good morning" and they wanted to know why it's so good.) They probably also see him as a fool and brown-noser since he's always trying to make Hook happy. To the crew he's just Hook's assistant and not a real pirate at heart.
