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.
