Hook

Visible crew/equipment: Peter Pan is trying to free his children from Captain Hook, but is captured and tied up. After a few minutes, he falls into the sea; but is then saved by three Mermaids. Watch the last Mermaid with green hair, when she is swimming towards him. If you look at the foliage behind her you'll see a diver's hands rapidly flailing in an effort to swim backwards out of the shot. Also, as the mermaid is kissing Peter you can see a quick glimpse of the diver's mask and equipment. Easier to see on DVD - the Netflix version has been slightly obscured, but still visible. (00:48:25)

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)

Visible crew/equipment: After one Lost Boy fires an arrow at Peter's butt, you can see a thin piece of fishing wire that hangs past the bow and in front of the Lost Boy, either used to launch or control the arrow. (00:53:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When the pirates try to get Peters shoes, after he first arrives at Neverland, Tinkerbell starts fighting them. In one shot a pirate gets hit by a very large saucepan, and falls back-first off a balcony. The very long wire is very visible. It's really long and goes all the way from attached to his back, to offscreen. (00:36:00)

Visible crew/equipment: White lighting screens are reflected on Peter's glasses when he looks up to see Rufio for the first time, and right afterwards when he runs away and bumps into a net.

Sacha

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera zooms into the hook-shaped window-lock opening itself, you can see the faint reflection of the camera and its operator in the silver plate that the lock is attached to. (00:21:45)

Visible crew/equipment: After Hook is eaten by the giant crocodile Peter shouts "Bangarang!" and the kids start yelling it as well. Look on the far right of the screen, behind and underneath the crocodile, and you can see a pair of legs in blue denim jeans just standing there. (01:59:41)

Visible crew/equipment: When the Lost Boys begin to chase Peter around their hideout there is a shot that starts high up in the trees and moves down as it closes in on Peter running from the kids. As the shot passes a support beam attached to the track that Rufio's sail-ship runs on you can see the camera's shadow cast on the support. (00:52:22)

Jack Vaughan

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter first arrives at Neverland we see Smee taking Captain Hook's hook to the ship. When the camera pans underneath the ship's sails to reveal the giant human skeleton attached to the prow you can see a metal walkway at the top of the screen, behind the sails, and the legs of some crew members stood on it. (00:37:23)

Jack Vaughan

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter first arrives at the Lost Boys hideout, as he stands up (and the shot moves backwards), you can see the cameras shadow on the ground on the far left side of the screen. (00:49:29)

Jack Vaughan

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

Visible crew/equipment: When Peter arrives in Neverland he walks up to some pirates and says, "I'm looking for someone". The pirates chase him and Tink beats them up. In one shot, when a pirate is being thrown from a balcony, there is a launch pad in between the slats.

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: 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.

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.
