Peter PanFor its 60th anniversary, Disney’s movie adaptation of J.M. Barrie‘s classic children’s book adventure, Peter Pan, got a restoration for its high-definition Blu-ray debut.

The 1953 animated film tells the wonderful story about the Darling children —  Wendy, John and Michael — who travel to Never Land with the boy who won’t grow up, Peter Pan. But in the fantasy land, they discover an ongoing war between the Lost Boys, Peter’s gang of runaways, and the evil pirate Captain Hook. But nothing can’t be fixed without some pixie dust from Tinker Bell.

The movie was directed by three men with plenty of classic animation pedigree: Lady and the Tramp‘s Clyde Geronimi, Cinderella‘s Wilfred Jackson and 101 Dalmatians‘ Hamilton Luske. And Peter Pan was executive produced by Walt Disney himself.

Rated G, the movie is presented with 7.1 DTS-HD audio on both the two-disc and three-disc Blu-ray versions.

Plus, the Blu-ray discs will have four new special features that haven’t been on disc before. They are:

  • “Disney Intermission”
  • “Growing Up With Nine Old Men”
  • “Disney View”
  • “Introduction by Diane Disney Miller”

Also on the Blu-ray discs are these vintage extras:

  • deleted songs and scenes
  • “You Can Fly: The Making of Peter Pan
  • “Tinker Bell: A Fairy’s Tale”
  • Disney song selections
  • audio commentary hosted by Roy Disney
  • music videos
