Video: How Does The Disc Look?
Peter Pan storms onto Blu-ray with an impossibly strong 1.33:1 1080p transfer. In short, it feels almost too perfect. Buena Vista has cleaned up every element of the film's original look - you won't find any instances of dirt or grime here - yet while it's beautiful, it seems almost not even cinematic. Yes, color accuracy is vibrant and well-defined and detail quality is super strong, but there's no lived-in grain presence here, which definitely reverses any ravages of age, but it gives the movie a video-game-esque feel. It seems stupid to argue about a movie looking 'too good' for high-def, but even though Peter Pan remains a visual marvel on Blu-ray, there are still some aspects of its video presentation to nitpick.
Audio: How Does The Disc Sound?
Disney again has gone all-out in offering a huge DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio sound mix here. We get an original mono track (in lossy Dolby Digital, alas), but even though surround channels aren't given a ton to do, this eight-channel affair is totally impressive. Music, dialogue, atmospherics - Peter Pan is a simple, old-fashioned film, and while purists will bemoan the lack of a lossless mono presentation on this disc, it's hard to hold a grudge when the overall results are this strong.
French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes are included, as are English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
