Featuring original illustrations by Disney Legends John Hench and Al Dempster, readers can relive the magical story of the classic film Peter Pan through word-for-word narration, multiple reading modes and interactive surprises.
“Disney Publishing has access to a vast library of stories and characters that we are now able to bring to a new generation of readers through mobile devices,” said Lyle Underkoffler, vice president, Digital Media. “We are particularly excited to add this app to our collection of Peter Pan-inspired books, including Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling Peter and the Starcatchers series, which will debut on Broadway this spring.”
The Peter Pan App invites readers to join Wendy, John, and Michael on their adventures with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, Captain Hook and his swashbuckling crew of pirates. Built into the story are interactive puzzles, coloring pages, a leveled-memory matching game and musical instrument, as well as tap-and-play interactivity.
Over the next few months, Peter Pan will be followed by several other Disney Classics tales, including Jungle Book, The Aristocats and Bambi.
