Continuity mistake: When Smee gives Hook his nightcap drink, Hook takes it in his hand and holds it at the top of the goblet so that it is hidden under his hand. But in the very next shot he is holding it by the handle and the whole goblet is now visible with a small black umbrella sticking out the top. Additionally, the position of the small umbrella that sits in the goblet changes a few times. (01:02:40)

Continuity mistake: After finding his son hit a home run in the game with the pirates, Peter decides he must learn how to fly. The ball his son hit comes flying from the sky and hits Peter in the head, knocking him over. When he hits the ground, he is lying on grass, but one second later he opens his eyes on grey rock. (01:28:10)

Continuity mistake: When Smee and Captain Hook are alone on the ship at night, Smee stands up just after eating chicken off his plate. His blue bandana hangs down his left shoulder near his plate. However, after a shot of Hook when it faces Smee again his bandana is now short, just resting on his left shoulder. (00:58:50)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the food fight, when Peter stands on a tall rock and looks over the scene, he is smudged with paint. In the next shot, the paint smudges are very different.

Revealing mistake: In the last scene that we see Maggie and Jack before they are kidnapped, when the bed covers fly off their beds, you can see that they are suspended by their corners. This is particularly obvious when they are lifted up. The middle of the quilt sags while the corners are lifted. (00:22:25)

Revealing mistake: When Tinkerbell is waking up all the Lost Boys and announcing Peter Pan's return, we see a shot in which Tink flies around a curly-headed boy. When she does, you can see the wire used to move the figure around his head. It is most visible when the boy turns his head toward the right side of the screen. (00:50:20)

Continuity mistake: When Hook gets his gun to attempt suicide, Smee runs to the model Neverland, and his sleeves are rolled all the way up his arms, yet when it cuts and he grabs the small boat from the water, his sleeves are rolled down to his wrists. (00:59:45)

Continuity mistake: When Smee and Hook talk alone in the ship, Smee walks to the table, picks up a plate, and starts picking up food. Then it cuts and now Smee is holding the plate, with a red napkin underneath it which wasn't there previously. (00:58:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Hook is first introduced by Smee, just as the camera focuses in on Hook's hook, you can see the reflection of the crew in it. (00:38:30)

Continuity mistake: When Peter gets hit with the baseball his son hit, it looks like in the shot behind the flying ball, that it's going to miss his head by several inches. But when it cuts to the front angle, the ball hits him squarely in the head. (01:28:05)


Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Hook is about to command his pirates to attack Peter Pan, and in doing so, goes to draw his sword. The shot cuts from Hook to Peter (I believe) and then back to Hook. When it cuts back to Hook, he goes to draw his sword again.

Continuity mistake: When Peter is shot with the arrows, he has big patches of red, blue, yellow and green goop on his shirt. The patches are all big and touch each other, yet when Peter runs from the sniffing flowers, the stains are all smaller. (00:53:10 - 00:53:45)

Continuity mistake: Before the big battle scene at the end, between the Lost Boys and the pirates, Peter shows up with a lot of makeup, mainly mascara and shadow on his eyelids. His extra makeup appears and disappears throughout the whole scene.

Continuity mistake: When Peter is having the ultimate fight with Captain Hook, Hook scratches Peter on his arm in a right to left direction. But when we see him in the next shot-from the front the scratch is left to right.

Continuity mistake: When the Lost Boys bring the pots of "food" to the table, there is a large spoon which lays by Peter's plate. Yet when it cuts, the spoon has vanished from it's place, so that the Lost Boy can put the pot down on the table easily. (01:09:10)

Continuity mistake: When Tinkerbell visits Peter at his home, in one shot she pulls the rug from under Peter's feet and Peter flies to the floor. When he lands to the floor, there is nothing around his head, just bare floor. Then when it cuts to a wideshot, lots of items like the tent sheet, the parachute etc. are surrounding his head.

Continuity mistake: When it shows the plane flying to London, in the first shot we see it is a huge craft but when it shows the inside it is very tightly compact and narrow.

Hook: Prepare to die, Peter Pan!
Peter: To die would be a grand adventure!
Hook: Death is the only adventure you have left!

Question: Is the food fight scene completely imaginary, or are the Lost Boys actually able to will food into existence by imagining it? I always thought it was the latter growing up and we as the audience didn't see it until Peter, as the audience's proxy, saw it for himself, but any YouTube videos I watch about this movie all seem to think all the food was just in everyone's collective imaginations.

Answer: Neverland very much runs on "If you believe, it will happen" which is what Tink means during the meal when she says "If you don't imagine yourself as Peter Pan you won't be Peter Pan." So by the rules of Neverland, as soon as Peter believed it was real it was then real. The dinner was trying to teach him to believe as, in Neverland, if you don't believe it then it won't happen.
