Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: In the nursery, as Tink pushes the books off the top shelf, in the close-up the wooden fan is seen leaning against the books on the middle shelf. Then as Peter flies towards the hallway following Tinker Bell he passes the bookcase and the fan is gone. Yet when Peter tells Wendy about meeting Tink at Kensington Gardens the fan is back. Books on the middle and bottom shelf change in these and other shots too. (00:12:35 - 00:19:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Peter, Wendy and the boys are on the cloud looking down on the Jolly Roger when Wendy comments, "She must do 12 knots under full sail." In this wide shot we see Noodler standing at the snow topped rail between the cannons. John then views Noodler in a close-up and the snow is different, there are lines lying on top of the cannons, etc. (00:29:55)

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Smee opens the door to Hook's stateroom, calls out, "Cap'n?" and from the exterior we see the large globe to the left. When Smee walks in, the globe is seen again from the other side, but the globe shows the exact same region and markings as when it was seen from the doorway. (00:27:35)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Smee places the pocket watch down on Hook's desk, in the close-up Hook smashes it twice and pieces of glass, metal, etc. go flying everywhere. Yet in the next front shot the loose parts are positioned differently when Hook is about to smash it a third time. (00:27:55)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Peter floats up after John says, "You offend reason sir," the clothes wardrobe is seen behind Peter and there are three very large floral hat boxes sitting on top. Yet when Michael flies and lands on top of that wardrobe the floral boxes are arranged completely differently. (00:21:10 - 00:22:05)

Peter Pan (2003)

Other mistake: When the Lost Boys spot the large white bird they argue about who gets the telescope. In the wide shot one of the twins slips and falls on the ground and looks directly at the camera with a puzzled look on his face. In the next close-up Tootles and especially Nibs start smirking, Nibs has to look down and away as Slightly says his lines and the other twin starts to look at the camera when the shot changes.

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: After Wendy says, "I should like to give you a kiss," and proceeds to give Peter the thimble, it is only now that Peter's 'kiss' for Wendy is on the garment he is wearing. It is not on his garment in all the previous shots of Peter. (00:17:50)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Tinker Bell comes in through the window, zips around the nursery and flies to the bookcase, knocking the two statue bookends and all of the books in between onto the floor leaving an empty shelf. Yet moments later Peter enters the nursery, follows Tink towards the hallway, passes the bookcase on the way and now there are other books on the top shelf. (00:12:35)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: John jumps out of bed, stands next to Wendy between the beds and says, "I should like to offend it with you." In the next shot, when Peter says, "Just think happy thoughts," John is much further away from Wendy and is positioned directly in front of Peter who stands on John's brass footboard. (00:21:25)

Peter Pan (2003)

Audio problem: Wendy is tied to the mast on the Jolly Roger when Hook forces her to tell a story. In the wide shot, the pirates start to find seats and Hook has his hand at Wendy's throat as we hear her begin, "There was a boy named Peter Pan," yet her mouth does not move. She continues to say off camera, "who decided not to grow up," and in the next shot Hook gets angry and tells her to skip the prologue. (01:18:00)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Wendy tells her story while tied up on the Jolly Roger, there is a front close-up of Noodler who raises his 'left' hand to ask, "Was one of them pirates called Noodler?" Then there is a back shot of Noodler who is still raising his hand, but it is his 'right' hand that is raised and then moves to the front of his body. It is not the wart pirate's hand in the back shot, whose hand is on Noodler's shoulder in the next front shot. (01:18:15)

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Unable to make his shadow stick Peter is upset and when Wendy surprises him he zooms up to the ceiling and bangs his head. In this shot the light fixture hangs flush with the ceiling under a decorative medallion around the base. Later, when Peter floats to the ceiling after John says, "You offend reason sir" the fixture now hangs way down on a very long chain. (00:15:00 - 00:21:15)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Wendy places a flower full of medicine near the wooden crocodile for Peter to take. After Hook sneaks in he spots the flower and then places the poison inside it. Then when Peter wakes up and calls out, "Wendy," he sees the flower. In all three shots the wood chisel, wood chips, flower, etc. are different. (00:09:25 - 01:11:50)

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When John says, "You offend reason sir," Peter floats up. The large light fixture is hanging from the ceiling. However, in the next shot facing Peter when he says, "Just think happy thoughts," where is the light fixture? It's gone so Peter can fly around the ceiling, but it's back again in later shots.

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Wendy gets a needle and thread, then shows Peter the needle. As she says, "This may hurt a little," she shows the sharp needle to him. When she does the light in the room becomes brighter at this point (not a deliberate pun) as compared to the dimly lit nursery until this moment. It stays brightly lit until they leave for Neverland.

Peter Pan (2003)

Revealing mistake: At the bank there is a close-up of Mr. Darling with Sir Edward Quiller Couch standing behind him to his right, just as Nana, et al. are about to collide with the bankers. The camera pans in for the extreme close-up of Mr. Darling, who makes a horrified face. Later, when the Darlings are at the party Nana bursts in. Sir Edward again stands to Mr. Darling's right. Mr. Darling puts his hands up in front of himself and the next close-up shot is the very same shot from the bank. Part of Sir Edward's hair is edited and the background is digitally augmented. (00:09:25 - 00:23:20)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: We see the outside of the Darling's house as Wendy speaks of Alf Mason's ugliness, when she looks out from her window after Nana barks, when she searches the patio with a candle, when Nana is chained outside and when Peter, at a distance, sees the Darlings leave their home for the evening, etc. Among the changes, seen in certain shots, is the house adjacent to the Darling's home and the Darling's patio's appearance and surroundings.

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Tinker flies into the nursery, zips around the room and in the shot from under John's bed goes to the wardrobe with the hanging clothes. Then in the close-up she plunges into all the readily available pockets. These clothes which are seen in many following shots too are quite different in the later shots, not to mention the significant difference of the close-up with all the pockets in perfect position for Tinker Bell to fly in and out of. (00:12:30 - 00:15:20)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: The dirty smudges all over Peter's body either disappear altogether or change shape, position and/or shade in consecutive shots. For example, the smudges at Peter's left ear or just under his neck change while in the Darling nursery. (00:15:35)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: The distance between Nana's doghouse and Wendy's nightstand changes. For example, when Tinker Bell flies into the nursery she flies into Nana's house and we see the distance between the two. When Wendy climbs out of bed and curtsies to Peter the two are nearer to one another, and when she says her full name the two are even closer, but when Tink pulls Wendy's hair the house and nightstand are further apart again. (00:15:20 - 00:19:55)
