Continuity mistake: When the coconut flies at Peter, he spins, swings, and completely misses it. Then shown from another angle, he repeats the move, only to hit the coconut, but this time has his eyes closed in preparation for the liquid to fly everywhere.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The stuff that hit Rufio was originally blue with a touch of red and covered much of his face. Less than a minute later, it's mostly gone, but has changed to dabs of green with a touch of yellow over his left eyebrow.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: Peter picks up a wooden spoon and flicks imaginary food at Rufio. Looking at Rufio, a black plastic spoon covered in blue flicks some blue and red substance at him that has a consistency if pudding. When Peter looks at the now-covered spoon, it has red, green, yellow and blue stuff stuck on it.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: As Rufio makes his entrance, he swings on a twin roped bar, and a second later he's on a single vine, with nothing else nearby to swing on or from.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: As Tink flies around waking up the Lost Boys, as she flies by the red-headed kid, the wires operating the puppet are visible.

Movie Nut

Visible crew/equipment: As the hook is locked into place, there are several pyrotechnic charges set off, one of which can be seen exploding directly underneath the hook. Also, the studio lighting is reflected in the chrome finish.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: During the sword fight between Pan and Hook, Pan switches the sword from right to left. After dodging a thrust, it's suddenly back in his right.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The lane switch on the overhead path is just off center so neither track is complete. As Peter begins to run, the piece is in place, presumably because Rufio came through, but there is no evidence of an automatic switching device.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: As Peter stands on top of the rocks, you can see a distinct difference between his appearance and Never-land. Also, as the camera pulls back to follow his progress through the Lost Boys area, a vine is seen shaking on the left side because the camera hit it.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: Many times during the film when characters are flying, it is clear that they are flying on a harness due to their stiff, rigid movement and also due to the bulkiness that will suddenly appear on their back. It is especially noticeable at the end when Tootles sprinkles the fairy dust over himself and flies out the nursery window. (02:09:20)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Peter crawls into Nana's doghouse to greet her (after returning from Neverland) he shakes the doghouse a little as he crawls in, causing snow to fall of its roof, which lands in the two dogbowls next to it. But in the next shot the dogbowls are now empty with no snow in them and also there is a long bone sticking out one of the bowls too. (02:06:20)

Continuity mistake: When Peter gives the sword to the Lost Boy he chooses to leave in charge of Neverland, the Lost Boy holds the sword out, upright. In the next shot he is holding it down and once again lifts it upright. (02:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is leaving Neverland near the end of the film, he is talking with the Lost Boys, and they asks which one of them he should leave in charge of Neverland. As he does, he removes his sword from its sheath - twice between shots. (02:01:30)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Pan is battling with all of the pirates on Captain Hook's ship, he continues to knock them all to the ground with his sword. As the shots change during the scene, the positions of the pirates that lay on the floor keep changing instantly after they fall. (01:44:50)

Continuity mistake: When Peter Pan is fighting all the pirates on Hook's ship, we then see all of the Lost Boys swing across to the ship on ropes, after Peter shouts "Bangerang!" As all the Lost Boys swing over; some of the same boys swing over twice between the shots. (01:46:05)

Question: 1) I remember reading online once that some person in a band (not any of the ones mentioned in the trivia for this movie) lost a bet and appeared as one of Hook's pirates in this movie. Is this true and if yes who was it? 2) I also once read online that it is a tradition for Peter Pan movies to have the same actor to play Hook and somebody else in the movie. I don't remember Dustin Hoffman as anybody else in this movie. Was he somebody else in the movie?

Answer: (1) David Crosby and Jimmy Buffett both appear as part of Hook's crew - whether either of them is there as a result of losing a bet is unknown. (2) Traditionally, in stage productions of Peter Pan, the actor who plays Hook will also take on the minor role of Mr Darling, Wendy's father. As, in the story presented in the film, Wendy is now elderly, her father is likely long dead, and thus no opportunity exists to maintain the tradition. However, you can hear Dustin Hoffman as the voice of the pilot on the plane ride to London, giving a nod to the tradition.
