Peter Pan is not Disney. Disney DID a Peter Pan, but the story did not originate from Disney.
So ppl on DevArt, why why WHY do you gotta add my comic to your “disney” folder. That’s awesome that you like it, it really is, but when you do that, you ignore the origin of the story and it’s hard enough getting out from under the Disney shadow as it is. I already get harangued by people who are confused that I’m not doing it like Disney, or that I’m “stealing” b/c it’s Disney’s story. PLEASE.
They also did it with Little Mermaid stuff, so I assume that they just think either all the stuff Disney does is originally Disney OR they’re just shoving all fairy tale ish stuff under their Disney folder. Either way, it’s still shoving us all back under the shadow that we try so hard to escape from >_<
On the other hand, this does make me more determined to get the original story out there, and hope people will learn that yes, there is actually a book. That no, Disney didn’t write.
