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 the nursery windows are opened (as Peter and the kids return) we see an orange leaf float inside the room and land on Moira's neck. In the next shot it is on her shoulder. (02:03:00)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Smee is bent over at the water tank that has Hook's toy ships in it, in one shot as we see the shot with Hook's back facing the camera, Smee's bandana ties both hang in front of his shoulder. In the following shot the ties are now differently positioned, with one folded back over his shoulder. (01:00:05)

Continuity mistake: When Peter walks into the clearing at the Lost Boys hideout, he walks forward and steps his left leg into a vine tip which is laying on the floor. This causes the vine to wrap around his ankle and pull him up into the air. However as he is pulled up, the vine is now wrapped around his RIGHT leg. (00:49:45)

Continuity mistake: When Peter steps out onto the ships deck (before Hook comes out and makes his speech), Tinkerbell is with him and she lands on the top of a barrell. On top of the barrell is a glass bottle laying down, which between shots (as Tink lands on the barrell), changes which direction it is pointing. In addition the large piece of rope sitting next to it differs in position as well. (00:38:00)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is giving the lesson to Jack and Maggie about why their parents hate them, he starts by underlining the word 'Hate' on a blackboard he has. However a few shots later the line that he drew to underline the word is now completely different. The line is longer and thicker. (01:05:45 - 01:06:40)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: During the lesson that Hook is giving to Jack and Maggie about their parents hating them, the items on Jack and Maggie's desk (most noticabely the large white feathery quills and the large sheets of paper) change position a few times. (01:06:30)

Continuity mistake: When Hook is talking to Smee about the subject of Peter Pan (as Smee collects food from the table), Hook holds up his hooked hand and stares at it as he is talking. As the shots differ from wide views of the room to closeups of Hook, the lace cuff that surrounds his hooked hand keeps differing in its position. (00:59:20)

Continuity mistake: When the little Lost Boy begins to "inspect" Peter by tugging at his face and whatnot, in the first shot as he pulls Peter's cheeks the bracelet that he has around his wrist has a feather attached to it which is at the top of his wrist. In the next shot the bracelet has suddenly rotated, as the feather is now at the bottom (under his wrist). (00:56:10)

Hamster Premium member

Revealing mistake: In the shot of Tinkerbell flying across the screen with the vine (to trip up the Lost Boy twins) if you look closely you can see the wire that is attached to the vine, which is being used to pull it across. (00:52:50)

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

More quotes from Hook

Trivia: The name 'Wendy' was popularised for girls by the play of Peter Pan - JM Barrie adapted it from the way a neighbour's daughter mispronounced "friend." However, prior to PP, Wendy was a unisex nickname for both Gwendolyn and Wendell, also a name in its own right to a limited degree. More info here: http://www.wendy.com/wendyweb/history.html.

More trivia for Hook

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.
