Hook

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: Moira throws the cell phone out the window with the antenna extended and the flap opened, and it is buried by Nana this way. When Peter finds it at the end of the movie however, the antenna is down and the flap is closed.

Revealing mistake: When Rufio brings the sword down on the rope holding the slingshot, you can hear the intended sound effect, but the rope is not cut. (01:05:20)

Trivia: Three of Dustin Hoffman's children have minor roles in Hook. Maxwell Hoffman plays 5-year-old Peter Pan, Rebecca Hoffman plays Jane in the play, and Jake Hoffman plays one of the players at the Little League game. In addition, Jimmy Buffett plays the shoe-stealing pirate.

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: Does anyone know if the song Maggie sings underneath the stars is a real song? What's it called? Are the lyrics to the whole song written out anywhere? I'm talking about the one that goes "But I know I'm not alone, standing here on my own".

Chosen answer: "When You're Alone," written by John Williams and Leslie Briccuse, was an original song and was nominated for a 1991 Oscar. It lost to Beauty and the Beast. It was also up against "Everything I Do, I do it for you" from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Question: Was Captain Hook called Hook before he lost his hand, and had it replaced by a hook?

Mad Ade

Chosen answer: No, he wasn't. To quote J.M. Barrie, "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze", which rather implies that Hook was supposed to have been an important individual at some earlier point in his life. The only other clue to his history is that Barrie mentions that he attended Eton.

Question: What does the "JAS" in Hook's "JAS Hook, Captain" signature on the ransom note stand for? Is it possibly Hook's true name? (Going off of the Q&A about his name posted here).

Chosen answer: Jas is simply an older three-letter abbreviation for the name James. Was also used in Peter Pan creator J. M. Barrie's short story, "Jas. Hook at Eton" - a reference to the fact that James Hook might have been an Old Etonian, due to the fact that he has a tattoo of the crest of England's Eton College on his chest.
