‘Peter Pan’ vid grows up

'Dalmation' animated sequel also in works at Mouse House

Disney’s returning to an animated Neverland not in videostores but on the bigscreen.

Studio execs are so pleased with the sequel to the 1953 classic “Peter Pan,” now 95% complete, that they’re planning to release the movie theatrically in spring 2002.

Project, shelved temporarily a couple of years ago after animators had been hired to do preliminary work, was revived last year as a potential video premiere.Over the last couple of years, “Toy Story 2” and “The Tigger Movie” have also been bumped up for a theatrical release after development as video premieres.

Disney is also producing an animated sequel to the 1961 animated classic “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” that’s scheduled for a video premiere next year. Pic will be teased on next month’s video release of the live-action “102 Dalmatians.” The studio is also working on video premiere sequels to “Tarzan” and “Mulan,” and the first animated movie sequel to 1967’s Disney animated theatrical release “The Jungle Book.”

“The Hunchback of Notre Dame II” is slated for release on video this fall, and a second sequel to “The Lion King” is being written.
