FAQ Contents

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags are used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Peter Pan can be found here.

No one knows. In his novel, J.M. Barrie mentions cryptically that Hook is not his true name, and that if his real identity were ever revealed, "it would set the country ablaze." Barrie drops several hints here and there to keep the reader guessing, such as Hook's resemblance to the Stuart royal family and his past as the most feared pirate of the seven seas. Theories abound as to whom he could be, but Barrie himself most likely did not have anyone in particular in mind and probably preferred his audience to come up with their own answers. A common belief, and one that is used in the movie and other adaptations, is that his first name is James.

This is a metaphor mentioned briefly in J.M. Barrie's original book. It seems to have a double-meaning: (1) It is the first sign of a girl's emerging womanhood, and (2) it refers to a woman's finding her true love ("Tis a powerful thing", as both Slightly and Tootles point out). Mrs. Darling later makes a comment about her husband (her own true love) needing her "special kiss" the night of the party. And Wendy tells Peter that the kiss(thimble) she gives to him is only for him. By giving Peter her "hidden kiss", she both saves him from doom and gives in to the inevitable—she's becoming a woman.

No. In the original play and book by J.M. Barrie, it is his right hand that Peter cuts off. In Walt Disney's cartoon and in Steven Spielberg's Hook, the captain is missing his left hand. Disney thought that Captain Hook would lose too much movement if he did not have a right hand. Therefore, he had animators switch the hook to the left hand.

This same music has appeared in several other media, from department store commericials to industrial films. It seems to be a public domain piece popular with editors.

Due to the UK's strict policy a head butt had to be cut in order to receive the PG rating there. This master was used for several European releases as well. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
