peter-pan-return-to-neverland

is it wrong of me to vastly prefer the Peter Pan: Return to Neverland sequel over the original disney movie

i mean… i don’t remember much of the original but the stuff i do remember bores me. mostly Wendy admiring Peter and Peter being a dick

while in the sequel Jane doesn’t take any of Peter’s shit, she makes friends with Tinkerbell, Jane and Peter’s relationship is way more interesting and dynamic (heck, Peter had to work to become Jane’s friend), and Jane ends up saving Peter, and defeating Hook, with the help of Tinkerbell

that’s just so much more interesting to me

reasons i ship Jane/Peter Pan:

  • she punched him the first time they met (it was an accident)
  • she wasn’t afraid to call him out on his shit, and did so often
  • they literally flew over and through a rainbow that’s the cutest thing ever
  • Peter was humbled because of her and actually grew to be a better and kinder person
  • she learned to let loose and be a kid again thanks to him
  • he was talking about how all girls he’s met have had crushes and him and she’s like ‘or maybe you’re just full of hot air’ and he literally fell out of the air and then he looked at her with this really cute admiring look on his face with his
  • they both made efforts to meet each other halfway
  • they have the cutest fucking interactions okay they’re fucking adorable
  • he saved her from the pirates at the beginning, and she saved him (and the Lost Boys) from Hook at the end
  • she has a Peter Pan plushie ok that’s adorable
  • he genuinely liked her as a friend and not just someone to be his mom (like that plot point was dropped immediately after it was mentioned and it was never brought up again)
  • they became better people thanks to each other
  • it’s just really cute ok

please watch Return to Neverland it’s the cutest you won’t regret it

I saw this one confession and another Disney Confessions blog that said they really wanted a Disney Character that lived through one on the world wars but they also think that Disney would never do that. Has everyone forgotten that Jane, daughter of Wendy Darling and female protagonist of Return to Neverland became less kind and creative when WW2 started?
