****** Yes he does - Return to Neverland has a pirate who looks identical to Starkey,almost certainly him. He's the guy with a knife in his mouth. Of course, which of the pirates survived Return to Neverland is completely up for grabs.

** It means the first man, the first woman and the first stepmother (the first stepmother is mean, and the first man and the first woman mean a lot to each other).

* In the second film, how does Jane manage to reach the pirate ship, let alone climb aboard and make her way up one of the masts without being seen?

*** When George Darling was in Neverland, [[PeterAndTheStarcatchers Captain Hook was Black Stache]]. Nah nah...more likely Captain Hook was a SadistTeacher, since he used to be a schoolteacher in the original version if I recall.

* Exactly how long has Peter been in Neverland? He could be older than Hook, or ReallySevenHundredYearsOld for all we know.

* In ''Return to Neverland'', wasn't Wendy being a little hard on Jane? Okay, she was a bit mean to her brother, yes, but she had a point and Wendy didn't seem to want to at least try to understand Jane's POV. (If I'm wrong, please correct me; I only watched the movie once years ago.)
** It wouldn't be the first time a parent didn't listen to their child, for whatever reason.
** Wendy was trying to calm her younger son down and Jane was acting like a KnowNothingKnowItAll. Yes Jane was trying to be practical and Wendy was probably grateful for that. But from what I remember, Daniel was scared by the sounds of the bombing. Wendy tried to calm him down by saying "it sounded more like cannons - on a pirate ship". That got Daniel thinking about Peter Pan and took his mind off his fear. Then Jane goes ahead and ruins that because she ''has'' to put her opinion out there. Wendy could have been willing to discuss it later in private, but Jane was behaving like a brat and upsetting her younger brother - in the middle of a freaking blitz.
*** Actually, I think you're mixing two scenes together. If I remember right, during the blitz, Jane didn't say a word to Daniel and Wendy when they were playing pretend, only muttering under her breath that it was childish nonsense but otherwise keeping to herself and trying to listen to the radio. It was only when Daniel got too wild and tried to involve Jane, making her drop her notebook into Nana 2's water bowl that she scolded him, and even then she just said she didn't have time for games. The other scene was when Wendy told Jane that she and Daniel were going to be sent away for their own safety, sending Jane into distress because of her promise to her father to look after her family. When Wendy tries to tell her to "have faith" that's when Jane starts to lose it because she sees it as more of her mother's childish games ("Ugh, faith, trust, pixie dust! Mother those are just words from your stories, they don't mean anything!") Then Daniel comes in, and everything spirals out of control. But to answer OP's question, yes, I do think Wendy and the movie as a whole was too hard on Jane. And while she was out of line in the second scene with Daniel, the whole movie portrays her (intentionally or not) as if she shouldn't be concerned with the war and focused on her childhood instead. (Yeah, easy for the filmmakers to say when they aren't in danger of dying by blitz any moment)

** Your Mind Makes It Real? Isn't Neverland created by the stories and dreams of children? Just because it's a dream, doesn't mean it wasn't real. Alternately, Wendy was dropped off and waited up for her parents - but just dozed off at the window.
** The sequel seems to confirm that it was more than a dream. If Jane didn't believe in it, why would she dream about it?
