Continuity mistake: Unable to make his shadow stick Peter is upset and when Wendy surprises him he zooms up to the ceiling and bangs his head. In this shot the light fixture hangs flush with the ceiling under a decorative medallion around the base. Later, when Peter floats to the ceiling after John says, "You offend reason sir" the fixture now hangs way down on a very long chain.
00:15:00 - 00:21:15Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When John says, "You offend reason sir," Peter floats up. The large light fixture is hanging from the ceiling. However, in the next shot facing Peter when he says, "Just think happy thoughts," where is the light fixture? It's gone so Peter can fly around the ceiling, but it's back again in later shots.
Continuity mistake: Tinker Bell comes in through the window, zips around the nursery and flies to the bookcase, knocking the two statue bookends and all of the books in between onto the floor leaving an empty shelf. Yet moments later Peter enters the nursery, follows Tink towards the hallway, passes the bookcase on the way and now there are other books on the top shelf.
Continuity mistake: John and Michael dash out of the cave with the crocodile and run. After John yells, "Happy thoughts!" the exact same shot is seen twice as they run together. Then when John and Michael step into the traps, each are snared only on their right leg. However, in the next shot both of their legs are trapped as they hang upside down.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy awakens, she opens the door to find the Lost Boys standing there looking 'lovable'. The shots from the interior shows Wendy's hand on the door with her arm outstretched while she remains inside. Yet in the exterior shots she is standing outside the door frame.
Continuity mistake: When Peter struggles with his shadow on the dresser in the hallway, in the first shot Peter's right foot forces the red table runner to slide off. Yet in the next shot the wrinkled runner is still on the dresser, though it starts to fall with Peter as he goes down. In the next close-up of the drawer, the runner and Peter are still on top and both fall again, albeit differently. But when Aunt Millicent closes the bedroom door the wrinkled table runner is on the dresser again as she walks away and when Wendy gets needle & thread the runner is neat and flat.
00:13:30 - 00:14:35Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Peter is on the cloud looking through the telescope to see the Jolly Roger. Peter says "let's get a closer look" to Wendy, Michael and John, and he does a front-flip with the telescope in his hand, in the next shot the telescope is gone, but then he has it again a minute later.
Continuity mistake: After Wendy admits to being Red Handed Jill, Peter walks towards her and begins to overwhelm Wendy with his blade and knocks her sword out of her hand. In the first couple of shots facing John, Michael and Lost Boys, they are positioned a certain way. Yet when Peter's blade is at Wendy's throat the boys are positioned very differently.
Continuity mistake: In the Black Castle, when the croc appears outside the gate on the rock, we see in the left corner of the screen the children in the boat with Wendy standing up, next shot is of them all jumping to the side of the boat looking out over the water to the croc, the very next instance, when the croc is climbing down off the rock, the children are now back in their original positions again in the boat.
Continuity mistake: In the nursery, behind Michael's and John's beds there are many small soldiers and horses perched on the chair rail (decorative molding). The position/amount of these soldiers and horses differ significantly in consecutive shots within the scene before they leave for Neverland and also within the scene when they eventually return.
00:12:25 - 01:35:25Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While duelling on the Jolly Roger, Wendy and John back up into each other, turn their heads to look at one another and scream face to face. In the next shot Peter flies towards Hook and in the background on deck below, Wendy and John are standing apart and facing the same way. Then in the next shot they are still back to back while screaming face to face.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy, John and Michael return home, in the wide shot as they look around the two swords in the toy chest, at the foot of Michael's bed, are visible. When they go to their beds Wendy places her Neverland sword into the toy chest, but the two originals' positions differ - the boys' Neverland swords are visible on their beds. When Aunt Millicent walks in with the Lost Boys, as the Darlings hug, the toy chest is visible and the swords are gone.
Continuity mistake: After Wendy is shot by Tootle's arrow, while she lies on the ground the boys are gathered around her and Peter takes his "kiss" from under the neck of her gown. The "kiss" is looped onto the chain around Wendy's neck, but in the next shot Peter holds it without the chain. He could not have removed it from the chain, which is still around her neck, so quickly.
Continuity mistake: There are two dolls perched on either side of Wendy's headboard in the nursery. When Tink grabs hold of Wendy's hair, pulls her back towards the bed and slams her into the footboard, the doll on the left falls, yet the doll is back up on the headboard in the following shots. While Peter speaks with Wendy throughout these shots the positions of both of the dolls change.
Continuity mistake: When Peter tries to attach his shadow the toys, loose books and stacked books at Wendy's footboard differ in the following shots. Wendy exclaims, "You can fly!" and the books in the wardrobe are also seen and when she climbs out of bed the books in the wardrobe differ as well. Throughout this scene in subsequent shots these things differ, with no one touching them.
Continuity mistake: In the exterior wide shot, as Wendy opens the window of the nursery the curved window guard rail is seen being right up to the edge of the ledge below the window. In the shot from above as Wendy, John and Michael look up, the guard rail is not in this particular shot.
Continuity mistake: In the hallway Peter struggles with his shadow and while sitting on the dresser the large fan picture hanging above the dresser falls down onto the dresser top as a result. Peter still sits there and after Peter yells, "I've got you now!" there is a close-up of the dresser as Peter falls off and the back is seen but the large picture is missing. It couldn't fall forward as Peter blocks it when he sits there and it couldn't fall behind the dresser because the back has a lip on it. In all of the subsequent shots of the dresser and the floor the picture is not seen, it simply vanished.
Continuity mistake: When Princess Tiger Lily finds the two boys hanging upside-down in a snare, she is looking forward at them, and then falls backward laughing and rolls down an embankment. When the two boys start yelling at Hook, they all look straight up to see them, though they should be a good ten feet from that spot. One may argue she went back to that spot when trying to retrieve her knife before the pirates caught her, but even then, she was holding the knife when she fell, and would still be far from the right mark.
00:40:45 - 00:41:45
Continuity mistake: The distance between Nana's doghouse and Wendy's nightstand changes. For example, when Tinker Bell flies into the nursery she flies into Nana's house and we see the distance between the two. When Wendy climbs out of bed and curtsies to Peter the two are nearer to one another, and when she says her full name the two are even closer, but when Tink pulls Wendy's hair the house and nightstand are further apart again.
00:15:20 - 00:19:55Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Wendy sees John, Michael and the Lost Boys tied up she gasps in a wide shot, in which the pirates are spread out all around. A pirate puts a gag at her mouth and in the next close-up three pirates gather just behind the kneeling boys as Hook walks by to talk to Wendy with other pirates gathered round. In the next wide shot there are no pirates directly behind the boys and everyone is positioned the same way as the previous wide shot, those three specific pirates are in three different areas. Other pirates are in completely different spots as well between the close-up and following wide shot.
Continuity mistake: After the children return home, when Mr. Darling welcomes the Lost Boys to the family the boys all jump on him and then Michael pours the treasure onto the floor. In these and the rest of the shots the small red rug is in the middle of the floor, a completely different position than the previous shots, where it was under the table.
Continuity mistake: When John falls to the floor he slams into the toy house. In the wide shot he and the house stop moving with his feet landing near the toy house, whose front door is wide open as the camera shows Wendy and Michael through it. In the close-up however his head is near the house, whose front door just opens a bit.
Continuity mistake: As Peter hushes Wendy and explains, "...I shall never find her if she's dead," Wendy's bed is seen beside them. When Peter grabs hold of Tink and tosses her at Wendy's pillow, Wendy's blankets are positioned quite differently than the previous shot of it.
00:19:05 - 00:20:05Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Smee opens the door to Hook's stateroom, calls out, "Cap'n?" and from the exterior we see the large globe to the left. When Smee walks in, the globe is seen again from the other side, but the globe shows the exact same region and markings as when it was seen from the doorway.
Continuity mistake: During Wendy's farewell to Peter, when Hook pulls Wendy up she says, "Tis just a thimble," and right beside Wendy a pirate grasps John at the neck with his hand. In the next side shot as the pirates laugh, the pirate holds John around the shoulders with his arm, however, in the next shot the pirate still clutches John at the neck with his hand.
Continuity mistake: The inside of the front door of Wendy's house changes completely in different shots. 1. The interior shot after Wendy wakes up. 2. The exterior shot of Wendy standing in the doorway with the Lost Boys. 3. When Wendy wakes up aboard the Jolly Roger and opens the door. 4. When Wendy leaves the Jolly Roger and Hook waves goodbye.
00:37:15 - 01:00:00Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Peter floats up after John says, "You offend reason sir," the clothes wardrobe is seen behind Peter and there are three very large floral hat boxes sitting on top. Yet when Michael flies and lands on top of that wardrobe the floral boxes are arranged completely differently.
00:21:10 - 00:22:05Super Grover
Continuity mistake: As Wendy approaches the Lost Boys to give them their medicine, in the close-up they surround Peter begging to be killed. In the next wide shot Tootles pulls one of the twins close and puts his arm around him, though in the next shot they are positioned as they were in the first close-up. Wendy's necklace changes within these shots as well.
Continuity mistake: After Wendy admits to being Red Handed Jill, Peter holds his blade to Wendy's throat. In the first close-up Peter grasps the hilt so the sharp curved edge of the blade points towards the knuckles of his fingers. In the second close-up his hand grasps the hilt so that the sharp edge points towards the palm of his hand. (This has nothing to do with how his wrist is turned.)
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Wendy kisses Peter, Peter comes back down from the sky and cuts the ropes binding Hook. Hook is still tangled in the ropes when Peter tosses him a sword, but in the next shot, Hook flies away from the ropes as if he wasn't ever tangled in them. There wasn't enough time in between shots for him to cut the ropes himself.
Continuity mistake: When Hook slices Peter at the Black Castle, we see very that Hook cuts Peter directly below the jugular notch at the neck. Yet in the following shots the cut is shown to be far below the original cut made nor does it have the same appearance within those shots as well.
Continuity mistake: In the nursery, John shouts, "I've got it! I've got it!" then runs to his bed and visible on the left are clothes that hang from the tri-fold screen which stands near John's bed. In the close-up of John's feet, as he runs on his bed to try and fly, one set of clothes from the previous shot is gone. When he lands on the floor, there is yet another set of clothes that hang under the outfit with the white ruffle as well and then as John flies out the window still another set appears.
Continuity mistake: Peter, Wendy and the boys are on the cloud looking down on the Jolly Roger when Wendy comments, "She must do 12 knots under full sail." In this wide shot we see Noodler standing at the snow topped rail between the cannons. John then views Noodler in a close-up and the snow is different, there are lines lying on top of the cannons, etc.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy tells her story while tied up on the Jolly Roger, there is a front close-up of Noodler who raises his 'left' hand to ask, "Was one of them pirates called Noodler?" Then there is a back shot of Noodler who is still raising his hand, but it is his 'right' hand that is raised and then moves to the front of his body. It is not the wart pirate's hand in the back shot, whose hand is on Noodler's shoulder in the next front shot.
Continuity mistake: We see the outside of the Darling's house as Wendy speaks of Alf Mason's ugliness, when she looks out from her window after Nana barks, when she searches the patio with a candle, when Nana is chained outside and when Peter, at a distance, sees the Darlings leave their home for the evening, etc. Among the changes, seen in certain shots, is the house adjacent to the Darling's home and the Darling's patio's appearance and surroundings.
00:01:10 - 00:11:55Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After the children return, the shadows cast within the room change drastically in the following shots. For example, when the wall behind John's and Michael's beds is visible the shadows cast by items, such as the clock and light fixture, are very different throughout this last scene.
01:36:25 - 01:37:55Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When the children arrive home, John does not have a mark on his forearm. As John shakes his father's hand there is a long black mark above his wrist. During the family hug while they kneel on the floor the mark is smudged. When John is on the floor with his father and the Lost Boys, Michael dumps the treasure onto the rug and in the next shot as John holds one of the twins the mark on his forearm is long and clear now. The mark changes position as well.
01:37:15 - 01:38:55Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Hook sneaks into Peter's hideout while Peter sleeps in order to kill him. In the first close-up Hook tries to reach Peter, who's lying down, as Peter mumbles in his sleep. In Peter's second close-up he is in a completely different position as the poison drops into the water. As he wakes with a start in his third close-up, Peter is lying in the same position as the first close-up.
Continuity mistake: On the Jolly Roger, after Hook tells the others, "He's mine," and Peter shouts, "Now," we see Wendy bursting through a closed door and surprising the pirates. In the next shot we see Wendy bursting through the closed door again from another angle and her hair is different in both shots.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy says, "But, there's no such thing," Peter flies to her and covers her mouth with his hand. When he says, "Don't say that." In this side shot his fingernails are relatively clean. In the next shot facing Wendy, Peter's hand is still on Wendy's mouth and his fingernails are filthy. Then back to the side shot and his fingernails are clean again.
Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Darling rushes back to the nursery, realizing that her children are home, she stands at the doorway facing Wendy, John and Michael and the blankets on Wendy's bed are very messy. However, when she hugs the children the blankets on the bed are spread quite neatly.
Continuity mistake: When Smee places the pocket watch down on Hook's desk, in the close-up Hook smashes it twice and pieces of glass, metal, etc. go flying everywhere. Yet in the next front shot the loose parts are positioned differently when Hook is about to smash it a third time.
Continuity mistake: Tink unlocks the nursery window, flies about and darts under John's bed. In the view from above John's bed, we see a large play castle at the brass footboard of his bed. However, in the next shot looking out from under his bed as Tink opens the wardrobe, we see through the bars of the footboard that the play castle is GONE. Then in the next shot of the bed the castle is back.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Peter ducks down next to the Lost Boys, we see Hook look at the boys and Peter is in the far right, but as Hook comes closer, Peter is now in the middle (it would have been impossible for him to slide into the middle because Hook would have noticed it).
Continuity mistake: When Wendy is tied up aboard the Jolly Roger the amount and/or position of rope around her differs greatly between shots. For example, when Hook shoots Noodler it's wound around 6 times - on her left it's 3 over the wood and 3 under, yet when Hook cuts the lines it's wound 5 times - on her left it's 4 over the wood and 1 under.
01:18:20 - 01:19:20Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Tinker flies into the nursery, zips around the room and in the shot from under John's bed goes to the wardrobe with the hanging clothes. Then in the close-up she plunges into all the readily available pockets. These clothes which are seen in many following shots too are quite different in the later shots, not to mention the significant difference of the close-up with all the pockets in perfect position for Tinker Bell to fly in and out of.
00:12:30 - 00:15:20Super Grover
Continuity mistake: At the bank Nana skids and picks up the two passengers and they all advance towards the bankers. As the boy runs and then as all three approach the bankers, the bankers behind Mr. Darling are positioned differently depending on the camera's angle in each of the far shots, close-ups and overhead shot.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy is at school she puts down her needlework and flips the page in her notebook to the page with the drawing of Peter and as she flips the page the drawing is seen. In the next close-up, the drawing seen here is different from the one seen in the previous shot. Two examples of the difference are Peter is much closer to Wendy and he has no wings in the wide shot.
Continuity mistake: Peter flies in and tells everyone of the new pirate Red Handed Jill and as he says, "She's just a storyteller," the small piece of watermelon, that looks as if it's been hacked already, is visible on the table. Then when he says, "I shall run her through!" he slams his blade into a large wedge of watermelon - its shape is very different (before the blade hits it of course). Other food on the table differs in consecutive shots within this scene as well.
Continuity mistake: The scene after Hook gets swallowed by the crocodile Peter puts on the hat that Hook tossed into the water earlier. But in the close up shots of Peter, the hat with its feathers look perfectly dry, contradicting the very loud splash it made when it hit the water.
01:23:40 - 01:33:35
Continuity mistake: Peter and Hook are face to face as Hook taunts Peter saying, "I'm afraid the window's barred..." In the shots facing Hook, Peter holds the base of Hook's hook with his left hand while his right hand blocks Hook's hook with his sword. However in the shots facing Peter, while the boy blocks Hook's hook with his sword, Peter's left hand does not hold the base of Hook's hook.
Continuity mistake: After Wendy sews the shadow onto Peter the light in the nursery brightens. The items in the room cast their own shadows, for example, the clock and light fixture over Michael's beds. These shadows change drastically in the following shots, until they fly off to Neverland.
Continuity mistake: When the children return home, in a wide shot as they look around the nursery while their mother sleeps in the chair, the table's two legs are positioned near the outer edge of the small red rug. When Mrs. Darling walks out of the room the table is pushed farther back, close to the bookcase. The little rug near the corner curio changes between shots as well.
Continuity mistake: Wendy places a flower full of medicine near the wooden crocodile for Peter to take. After Hook sneaks in he spots the flower and then places the poison inside it. Then when Peter wakes up and calls out, "Wendy," he sees the flower. In all three shots the wood chisel, wood chips, flower, etc. are different.
00:09:25 - 01:11:50Super Grover
Continuity mistake: The pirate hat hanging on John's foot board first faces him, then faces the camera, the toys on the floor in front of Michael's bed, etc., change position between the shots of Peter entering the nursery and when Aunt Millicent opens the bedroom door, even though no one moved anything between these shots.
00:13:00 - 00:14:20Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After the children's arrival from Neverland, they are in bed as Mrs. Darling, unaware of their return, stands and walks out of the nursery. In this shot there is a set of eleven identical books and another red book on the top shelf of the bookcase. However, when Mr. Darling hugs John now there are actually fourteen in the set of identical books along with the red book on the top shelf.
01:35:45 - 01:37:15Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When John and Wendy duel in the nursery, Wendy ducks beside the table and John plunges his sword into the bookcase as he lands face down on the table knocking things off. In the next close-up of Nana, the table is visible behind her with no sign of John or Wendy and toy soldiers sit upright at the edge of the table.
Continuity mistake: Mrs. Darling plays the piano and when the children start dancing around Aunt Millicent we see the small red velvet pillow on the table to her left. In the next wide shot as they dance, Mr. Darling settles them down and the pillow is not on the table, yet in Aunt Millicent's close-up the pillow is there as before.
Continuity mistake: Before Peter takes the Darling children to Neverland, just after he says, "We'll ride the winds back and away we'll go," Wendy backs up between the two beds of her brothers asking if they can come too. Michael (the younger one on the right) is seen lying on his back in the middle of the bed with his arm over his chest, but in the next close up of him, he is lying on his side hanging over the edge of the bed.
Continuity mistake: Tiger Lily's painted blue hand on her face changes its shape throughout the shots in the forest and Black Castle. For example, when she is in the boat entering the gate as she stares wide eyed at the skeletons, the blue thumb is thicker and parallel to her face, whereas in the forest the blue thumb is thin, long and points towards to the side of her face.
00:41:00 - 00:43:00Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Peter & Wendy go to see the mermaids, one of the mermaids places her hand on top of Wendy's, and starts to put her head underwater. In the next shot (filmed from behind the mermaid), before Peter hisses at it, she is upright in the water, not dipping her head under anymore.
Continuity mistake: When Tink flies into the nursery and zips around searching for Peter's shadow she flies into Nana's house and in this shot Michael's bed is more than a foot away from the nightstand. In the next overhead shot Michael's bed is much closer to the nightstand. Michael's blanket differs considerably as well.
Continuity mistake: In the interior wide shot of the nursery, just before Peter says, "Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all..." Wendy stands in the window with Peter flying behind her and the tri-fold screen is visible on the right with clothing on it. When Mr. and Mrs. Darling run into the nursery, the clothing hanging on the repositioned screen are completely different.
Continuity mistake: In the nursery, as Tink pushes the books off the top shelf, in the close-up the wooden fan is seen leaning against the books on the middle shelf. Then as Peter flies towards the hallway following Tinker Bell he passes the bookcase and the fan is gone. Yet when Peter tells Wendy about meeting Tink at Kensington Gardens the fan is back. Books on the middle and bottom shelf change in these and other shots too.
00:12:35 - 00:19:10Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Tink flies into the nursery she zooms to the bookcase, knocks down the books, one by one, from the top shelf and the last thing to fall is the statue bookend. In the next close-up the Indian bookend lands last, but it's not the same one that fell in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: The toy house is placed up against the wall near the children's bedroom door on the wood floor, with its front door facing out towards the boys' beds. However, when John flies and promptly falls, the house is not only placed away from the wall and on the rug, it is also facing the opposite way, with its front door facing the children's bedroom wall.
00:19:55 - 00:21:45Super Grover
Continuity mistake: John jumps out of bed, stands next to Wendy between the beds and says, "I should like to offend it with you." In the next shot, when Peter says, "Just think happy thoughts," John is much further away from Wendy and is positioned directly in front of Peter who stands on John's brass footboard.
Continuity mistake: When Hook makes Wendy tell the story of Peter Pan and subsequently shoots Noodler, the first of the two pirates to go down at storytime, the camera cuts to the next shot and Hook's pistol is out of his hand, which is not only visible, but being held up in the air, as opposed to under his right arm where he shot from.
Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Nana sleeping in her house before we see Peter flying over Wendy, who is also asleep. Then there is another shot of Nana coming out of her house barking. The toys' positions near Nana's house differ in both shots and Nana did not move them.
