* Peter is originally from England the same as his wife. It is stated in the dialogue that he was adopted by an American couple, but he was already nearly a teenager. Would he have realistically lost the English accent he would've spoken with during his time there? That was always a puzzler for me as RobinWilliams doesn't bother with a British accent.

** This could actually count as FridgeBrilliance. In the flashbacks, Peter still speaks with an American accent (look at the scene where he meets Moira). Since he left England as an infant, and was then raised by Tinkerbell (who, in this version, sounds like the very American JuliaRoberts), he would have picked up ''her'' accent instead.

*** Going back to the second point. All the happy things in Wendy's life are probably dead by this point; Michael died in World War I, John may be dead (possibly having died in the SECOND war), Wendy could be a widow by this point; her children have moved out and she's merely a babysitter, the person she loved didn't love her back and let her - as she was a 1910s child - make a (possibly) arranged marriage in the 1920s that may not have truly made her happy. Peter returning for her all those times made some of this go away, but as an old woman, there isn't much she can do about it now. And, to make things worse, she hasn't seen her granddaughter and great-grandchildren in 10 years!

** Tootles obviously didn't forget either, people just thought he was crazy when he talked about it.

** From technical standpoint, they were probably scrubbed out to avoid lawsuits from Real Native Americans. Indigenous people have been getting more and more vocal over the years about their culture being portrayed as stock fantasy characters.

** From a technical standpoint, they were probably scrubbed out to avoid lawsuits from Real Native Americans. Indigenous people have been getting more and more vocal over the years about their culture being portrayed as stock fantasy characters. To put it very lightly, they're offended at being portrayed as NobleSavages and won't tolerate it anymore. Google Idle No More for an example.

To add an example regarding the indians.
* This Troper loves this movie to death, but there was one minor nitpick. Where are the Indians. I mean there was mention of them so they didn't go unnoticed. But you'd think in a movie like this, they'd be there to give Pan some sage like advice to Pan during his time of need. Or at the very least be BigDamnHeroes when Pirate Battling becomes too much for even the lost boys to handle.

*** Alternatively, maybe she never fell out of love with him. Over time, the memories associated with Peter and Neverland became less happy and more bittersweet as she realized that he was never going to love her back the way she wanted.

* So, how's the growing-up logic in this movie? In Disney's Return to Neverland, a grown-up Wendy remembered Peter as if she met him yesterday, but here in Hook Peter, Wendy and Tootles as grown-ups forgot they were lost boys and lived in Neverland as if their memories were erased.
