While I was doing research for a recent article about the history of Magic of Disney Animation, I found a real interesting article about the development of the "Back to Neverland" film. It's clearly written without input from Disney but shows how the film was developed and I found it a great read.


They objected to Robin Williams as being "not Disney" which I guess in those days was true. They objected to animating the tourist as a Lost Boy. One muck insisted the tourist be changed into an animal, preferably a skunk. He really said skunk. When Jerry pointed out that there were no talking animals, especially talking skunks, in Peter Pan, the muck's head exploded. Really. It exploded, making quite a mess on Bob's nice paneling.

I think Disney has loosened a lot as to what they consider to be "Disney."
