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:

Jane's lucky to have visited Peter Pan's world. ^_^

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?

Eh, that's why I never bother to take aesop's too seriously, they're really fragile and break so easily... :P

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.
