It will live in your heart forever, these facts will live in your mind.
Though the film was a modest success, Walt Disney himself was dissatisfied with the finished product, feeling that the character of Peter Pan was cold and unlikable. However, experts on J.M. Barrie praise this as a success, as they insist that Pan was originally written to be a heartless sociopath.
In the originally-planned version, Nana traveled with the children to Neverland. It also had a much darker ending.
In the original play, Hook loses his right hand, but the Disney artists felt that would limit his actions too much, and switched the hook to the left hand.
Passages in the original book by J.M. Barrie ("Peter and Wendy") talk of Peter Pan switching sides when the Lost Boys were at war with the Indians, and killing Lost Boys just for fun. It's also implied that Peter "thins out" the Lost Boys when they get too old or disruptive, which some people have interpreted as killing them.
Originally, this was intended to be the second animated feature created by the studio after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
Peter Pan can be found (large warning disclaimer included) right on Disney+
