While the Diamond Edition includes all of the previous extras, there are also some new ones, the ones on the disc mostly geared towards grown ups revisiting their past, rather than children just discovering the tale, who are better served by the multi-platform components. Two deleted scenes are shown with narration and sketches, in full 16:9 HD, about five minutes in length. They are early concepts, and don't fit in the finished story, so it's clear why they were cut. However, it's thrilling to get this glimpse into history and the creative process of this film's development.
There are also two deleted songs, also story boarded, mixed with a few bits of animation, also in 16:9 HD with restored audio. One, "Never Smile at a Crocodile," is familiar to many, given it's recorded release and appearance on Disney sing along videos, and the fact that it sets lyrics to a melody that is included in the film. The other, "The Boatswain Song," isn't very good, but hey, it's not in the movie, so it's valuable for the same reason the deleted scenes are.
There is a 40+ minute documentary about the Nine Old Men. Those familiar with the early story of Walt Disney's company will already know who these famous animators are, and while the featurette doesn't deal much with Peter Pan specifically, it will be of interest to Disney buffs, and is appropriate here because Peter Pan is the last film they all worked on together.
The only thing I really didn't care for was the Pirate Training that comes up after you pause the disc for ten seconds. It is boring and not very engaging, so I'm not not sure the kids will like it, and it's far too basic for adults to appreciate. I guess it's better than just a frozen screen, but I wouldn't call it an enhancement.
There are also a storybook app, coloring pages and memory games for the computer, a digital copy, a DVD version, and more in the combo pack, making for an interactive experience across various devices, and allowing for interaction by a generation who expects such.
This release is by far the best this movie has ever looked, and is definitely worth checking out just for the film itself. But the features are great, too, so it's a total package. Disney's Peter Pan Diamond Edition will be released Tuesday, February 5th at retailers everywhere.
