*Throughout the movie you'll notice that Wendy has trouble flying. Pixie dust works best with happy thoughts. However, since coming to Never Land Wendy has been attacked, bullied, and frustrated with Peter. Factoring all that it's probably hard for her to think happy thoughts.

** The line was something like "They are the children who fall out of their prams when the nurse isn't looking. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent away to Neverland".

* At one point, it is said that Hook was even feared by "the ship's cook". The cook in question is John Silver from TreasureIsland.

** In a later movie she does meet and communicate with humans. And then she's back to ringing like a bell for a few minutes.

** Then again, the flight to Never Land made it pretty clear that Never Land isn't even on Earth, let alone in America. So, technically speaking, the Injuns in Never Land aren't even Native Americans, they're native Neverlandians!

** Adding to that, at least in her first solo movie, Tink only ever speaks to other fairies, never to humans or other creatures. Of course they'd understand her and be able to communicate with her!

** ''Hook'' addressed an aspect of that Fridge Horror rather nicely. Look at his relationship with Wendy. Though that may merely be a case of WhoWantsToLiveForever

** Note that that isn't from --> The boys on the original book, but from an adaption.island vary, of course, in numbers, according as they get killed and so on; and when they seem to be growing up, which is against the rules, Peter thins them out.

*** Surely that's part of the point? The 2003 film version plays heavily on Wendy's sexual awakening, and it's not uncommon for (straight) children just entering puberty to first be attracted to someone who reminds them of their own opposite-sex parent. It adds another layer to the symbolism already inherent in casting the same actor as Hook/Darling.

**** Jung's theories include both an oedipal complex, where a boy's first love is his mother, and an electra complex, where a girl's first love is her father. He described it as a natural progression of sexual idenfication. As the children grow up, these are resolved into relationships with other boys and girls. It's interesting that while the play was published in 1902, the book was published in 1911 when Jung was already known.
