Jane by Yet-One-More-Idiot Jane by Yet-One-More-Idiot
In spite of my initial dislike of Disney's near-terminal case of sequelitis - including Return to Neverland among others - RtN was a really good, clean, fun film. And I loved Jane Darling's part in it. But please don't get me started on them setting the film during the Blitz. Wendy's adventures were in 190x, not the 1920's!

:iconiloveyouplz: I love what :iconshadowoflight01: =shadowoflight01 did here with Jane's hair, that extra layer of sheen on her cute bobbed haircut, and the excellent shading. Aside from her distinctive but very adorable "big cute eyes" style, I could swear this was taken from a cel from the film itself! :love:

I think what Disney was going for was setting the original Peter Pan in 1911 (the year the book was published) and going 30 years into the future.

Yeah, that's what I think too. After all, a 30 year generation isn't that unusual (my parents are 30 years older than my sis and me), although not always the case (my paternal and maternal aunts are both 18 years older than their eldest). :)

Thanks for the comment.

Unfortunately, I think I might have found something about this that ruins the whole movie. The moral was supposed to remain young at heart. However, since this was set in Britian during World War II, in the middle of The Blitz, well, I'll just use a quote from The Nostalgia Chick.
"Hey little girl, what are you doing being concerned about nazis, bombs and living to see the end of the war? Pixie dust, damn it!"

I don't know, is there anything in this movie that can fix this seemingly broken Aesop?

Indeed. I'm not a huuuge fan of stories being Disneyfied, but they did good work with Return to Neverland. :)

I think Disney was thinking that Wendy's adventures took place in 1911 (the publication of Peter and Wendy as a novel).

The setting was absolutely essential for Jane becoming such a great character.

I thought it was 1910, but I shan't quibble over a year. Yes, the Blitz setting is essential for the characterisation of Disney's Jane. :)

It's not a *very* anime style that she's been drawn in, but I agree it does make her look even sweeter. <3

No it wasn't. Look at the original novels. At the end of peter pan and wendy, Peter visits a much older wendy, and takes jane to neverland.

As for it being a dream in the disney movie, your wrong there too. The twist ending with the pirate ship, and george darling recognizing it gives THAT away all too well.

I didn't quite say that, BriteStarRobot - I don't like that Disney (or any film company for that matter) so frequently resort to making sequels just to earn huge pots of money. But I do actually really LOVE "Return to Neverland", it was a cute film. :dance:

Also, where was it said that Neverland was supposed to be a dream? I've read the original novel (well, a reprint, but I doubt it's been changed that much...), and it doesn't imply that anywhere as far as I could see. :)

In the film, it's implied, you just need to watch the ending more carefully as I have.

Oz, for example, definitely was a dream in the 1939 movie.

Oh yeah, Oz in the film was definitely a dream, but the original Oz novels implied it was a real place (especially as in the later novels, Dorothy and her family apparently *moved* there permanently).
The Disney Pan film must've been a fairly subtle implication, I always inferred it the way the book went, that it was all really real. Although I loved the Fox cartoon series more anyway. :D

Peter Pan, regardless of what happens in the ending, is one of my favorite movies. I also like Pocahontas and Mulan as well.

I think she possibly looked her cutest in the film at the point where Peter is inducting her into the Lost Boys...Girls. :D The whole kind of cat-like helmet thingy (you can't see my hand gestures, they really don't help the explanation ;P) was very childish and sweet. :)

I know, as much as I remember she's bratty as well as girly when she can't take the boys' high 5 spit.

Yet-One-More-Idiot Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2009
She's not bratty, she's just....she's been forced to grow up, because of the war, and it's made her a bit cynical of things like Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Never Land. And then she finds out they're real and it's like she's been forced to grow down, to unlearn all the habits that helped her to cope with living in war-torn London.

And can you blame her about the hi-5 spit? Even I went "eww..." at that one. ;P

BB-K Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see.

Anyway, I remember she even cost Tink's life. And it's much worse when I remember Peter doesn't care of Tink in the last episode. The belief in fairies has always been the main lifeforce of their lives.

:iconyet-one-more-idiot:
Yet-One-More-Idiot Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2009
Yes, but Wendy helped Hook to sneak into the home and plant poison for Peter - which Tink swallowed and temporarily killed her - so Jane wasn't the only one to do that.
In that final episode though, Peter only didn't care about Tink because he simply didn't remember her - having grown up, he forgot about and stopped believing in fairies, until he was so old that his mind started to go and he DID believe again.

I suppose so, but Tink in front of him don't count, at least Hook cares since he's a well gentleman to all girls. Not sure of Disney's Hook's personality though.

:iconyet-one-more-idiot:
Yet-One-More-Idiot Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2009
As Hook said "Of course I believe in you - you're right in front of me, ain't ya?" Whereas Peter refuted her existence to her face; obviously he became extremely stubborn in his adolesence. :P
Yeah, Fox's Hook is very gentlemanly to ladies, he would often be surprisingly courteous when facing "Mistress" Wendy, and not attack her if she appeared alone simply because she asked him not to. I think she reminded him of his late mother. :D

Thanks PeterPan1944. :) And yes I know, I've seen your comments on other people's Return to Neverland pics before. :D

Personally, I feel Disney screwed that up 'cos Jane should've been a kid in the late 20s, not the Blitz ("Peter and Wendy" was set in 1902). But that's Disney for ya... ^^;
