In ''Peter Pan in Scarlet'', Hook claims that if you don't have a shadow, you can't fly. This directly contradicts the original novel, where Peter seems to be flying about just fine after losing his shadow. ContinuitySnarl, then? Not necessarily. In ''Peter Pan in Kenshington Gardens'' it's established that if you ''doubt'' your ability to fly you won't be able to do it. Hook may just have made up the "shadow" claim to sow doubt in the children's hearts, to stop them from flying away. It's not like it would be out of character for him to try something like that.

[[WMG: Captain Hook isn't really a bad guy.]]
It's all how the children view him. Captian is probably similar to most adults and means to help them, but children just see a giant evil pirate.

You reach Neverland by flying towards "the first star on the right", so logically it follows that this "realm" is in fact a planet orbiting that star (fairy dust enables not just Main/{{Flight}} but FasterThanLightTravel and BreathingInSpace), and therefore the people living on it are technically HumanAliens... and the Darlings and the Lost Boys are technically [[AlienAbduction abductees]].

* Doesn't the book say Wendy is 11 or 12 (it's one of the two, I think it's said she's 12) or so, and Peter is "just her size"? I think Wendy is meant to be 11/12, John is 8, and Michael is 2, but I can't think where I got those numbers from.

from. Peter would logically be around Wendy's age, though there's a slight hole in the plot in that the first two lines of the book state that only Peter never grows up, that all children know "soon" that they must grow up, and that Wendy knew it from when she was two, which would imply Peter would not be much more than two, as it's implied he less chose not to grow up, than it was he doesn't think he WILL grow up and that's completely stopped him from it.




to:

* (clears throat) "All children, except one, grow up." There's your answer right there, first line of the book. All children, except for Peter, must grow up. They soon know that they will grow up. The Lost Boys grow up, Wendy would have, the pirates age, the Picanninies age, fairies age, the animals on the island do, the Mermaids do, Peter is the ONLY child in the universe who won't grow up.

And takes place a year or so later. Or at least, the 2003 film does. If you look at the men who run the bank when George Darling is working there, it's a group of little old men, and one younger, dark-haired man. Which is how it ends in ''Mary Poppins'', with the dark-haired Mr Banks joining on as a manager with the old Dawes men. ''Disney/MaryPoppins'' was also shot to take place in 1910 (according to Mr Banks), and ''Peter Pan'' is usually shown to take place in 1911, when the original play was written. You could also make an argument that Mary Poppins is herself a denizen of Never Neverland, which is how she stays unaging (even though this usually only applies to Peter), and maybe even how she has magic.
