Milt Kahl Talks Casting on Peter Pan

This rare TV footage was filmed when Milt had already finished Madame Medusa for The Rescuers.
It was his last assignment at Disney, he left the studio soon after.
At that time he felt that the "post Walt" animated features weren't nearly as good as when his boss was around. Milt was very critical of the story as well as the craftsmanship that had gone into Rescuers.
Within this frame of mind he talks about animator casting on Peter Pan, many years earlier.

This is vintage Milt Kahl, listen to not only what he says, but how he says it.
You'll agree that Milt was a pretty entertaining character himself…and perhaps that's an understatement!
