Peter Pan

Peter Pan and his sidekick, Tinkerbell, as imagined by the animators of Walt Disney.  The studio's animated 1953 film Peter Pan was a big hit and remains one of Disney's signature films from the era.

The movie was based on author J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, or the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, which was published as a play in 1904 and as a novel in 1911. J.M. Barrie first created the character of Peter Pan for a story in his 1902 collection The Little White Bird.
