Corrected entry: Just after Peter gets hit in the head with the baseball, he goes to look at his reflection in the water. Robin Williams has blue eyes, but the younger boy playing the reflection has brown eyes.

Correction: This kind of error has been posted and corrected dozens of times on this site. 1) Eye colour changes with age. 2) The older Peter Pan may have poor eyesight and be wearing contacts.

Corrected entry: When Tinkerbell pulls on Peter's bowtie, Peter is looking far above the spot where Tinkerbell is.

Correction: He's in shock because a fairy is pulling him and he doesn't really believe in fairies. When you're in shock you tend to just look straight ahead at nothing so he didn't have to be looking at tinker bell.

Corrected entry: In the scenes where Jack's gold watch is shown, the time changes between shots.

Correction: In NeverNeverland, time goes backwards and at a variable pace, so although this probably was a mistake it could be perfectly normal.

Corrected entry: Tinkerbell takes Peter to Neverland when he is a baby. Peter gets older because he leaves Neverland every spring, thus growing while he's away. How come he stopped growing after meeting Wendy?

Correction: Everyone grows in Neverland, but the young at heart never 'grow-up'. Peter grows up into late childhood but never exceeds it. All the 'children stay at that last stage indefinitely.

Corrected entry: Peter goes to make battle with Hook and the pirates. To introduce himself he makes a cut in the sail, cutting his own image out. Smee goes to pick up the cut piece. You can see that there are holes to make arms. We never see Peter do this.

Correction: Yes it is true that we don't see Peter cut arm holes. However, we actually only see Peter make two cuts in the sail before the shot goes to everyone looking up. There is much cutting noise after that we can't see.

Corrected entry: When Peter cuts the boat's sail in the shape of Peter himself before the lost boy's intrusion, and Smith picks it up, it's perfectly cut. However, when Peter flies through the hole, the cut sail has no feet.

Correction: The piece was cut out in the shape of Peter Pan. The part of sail that was between his legs is hanging on the other side of the sail. Gravity is to blame.

Corrected entry: Even though HOOK is not an official remake of the Peter Pan movie, what happened to the "Indians" that were present in Never-Never-Land, especially since almost everything else is included.

Correction: The Indians are indeed mentioned, by both Smee and Captain Hook, in the movie. Smee suggests that the captain go hunt Indians, and Hook replies that he is sick of killing Indians and Lost Boys, and he wants a real battle (with Peter Pan).

Corrected entry: There are mermaids in the film that help Peter breathe under water, obviously doing a good deed to him. But in the book, mermaids were "evil" creatures that tried to drown inhabitants of the island.

Correction: But it also says in the book that Peter is the only person on the island that the mermaids like. He sits on the rocks and talks to them sometimes.

Corrected entry: When Smee lifts Peter's shirt up to reveal the part where Hook cut him in the past, Peter says, "It's from my appendix." Your appendix is on your right side; this cut was on Peter's left.

Correction: Peter may not have known that, and if he had always been told his scar came from an appendectomy, he would have had no reason to question it.


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)

Trivia: George Lucas and Carrie Fisher have cameos as a kissing couple on the bridge. Tinkerbell sprinkles fairy dust on them, and they begin to float.
