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.
