Did You Know?


The film originally had a shooting schedule of 76 days and a budget of $48 million, but production took longer than expected. Thus, the shooting schedule expanded to 116 days (40 days over the original), and the budget rose from roughly $60 million to $80 million. Steven Spielberg blames himself for this, saying, "I began to work at a slower pace than I usually do." See more »

My favorite movie of all time!
15 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All of you that are leaving comments are probably old farts that didn't grow up with this movie. This movie is a awesome fairy tale. It is a classic and probably my most favorite movie of all time. Very creative storyline. Its about Peter Pan forgetting his past and saving his kids. Robin Williams did a incredible job in this movie. I saw people dressed up as Rufio at every year at college parties. this movie was made 17 years ago and its considered a classic. I've never meet anyone that doesn't like it. So if you haven't seen it then go watch it! It has everyone one from the cartoon, like Wendy, peter pan, hook, the lost boys, tinker bell. And a new character Rufio!!!
