- Advertised Extra: Amanda Seyfried has two scenes yet gets prominent billing.
- Box Office Bomb: Budget, $150 million. Gross, $35,088,320 (domestic); $128,388,320 (worldwide). It was one of the biggest bombs of 2015.
- Creator Backlash: Rooney Mara has since regretted playing Tiger Lily due to inadvertently perpetuating whitewashing in the industry.
- Deleted Role: Leni Zieglmeier was cast as Wendy but her scenes were cut from the final film.
- Dyeing for Your Art: Hugh Jackman shaved his head bald and grew a thick bushy beard for his role as Blackbeard.
- Fake Brit: Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and Rooney Mara use British accents to play the Neverland characters. Averted with Hook though, who becomes American like Garrett Hedlund.
- Playing Against Type:
- Promoted Fanboy: Levi Miller is a huge fan of Peter Pan, having played him in drama productions and lists PJ Hogan's film as one of his favourites.
- So My Kids Can Watch: Joe Wright directed the film for his son.
- Stillborn Franchise: More films were planned, presumably featuring Hook's eventual FaceHeel Turn and more of Wendy and Tinker Bell. After the colossal bomb that was the first, that put the kibosh on any franchise hopes.
