Aunt Millicent is a character in P. J. Hogan's 2003 film Peter Pan, played by Lynn Redgrave. She is the aunt of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, though it is never made clear whether she is the sister of George or Mary. She is a new character in this adaptation of the story, though she replaces somewhat the character of Liza from the original play.
Millicent is a woman of some social sophistication, which she wishes to pass along to the Darlings. She is flustered by the Darling children's excited tales of adventure, which she clearly considers lower-class. She takes a particular interest in Wendy, seeing that she is on the cusp of becoming a woman, and wishing to guide her into instead becoming a lady. She also put herself in an advisory role to George, encouraging him to socialize more with his boss, and she comes to mind the household while George and Mary attend a party, planning to begin Wendy's lessons the next morning.
When the Darling children return from the Neverland, she is relieved and delighted to see them. But she is put off a bit by the Lost Boys, cautioning George and Mary about how the neighbors would react to them adopting the Boys. However, when Slightly wanders in, late, she is touched by his sadness at being left out. Tinker Bell uses some fairy magic on her, and she suddenly realizes that she knows his name, and after a brief hesitation declares that she will be his mother. Thus she gains the child that she subconsciously wished to have all along.
