Trivia

In Phil Collins' autobiography "Not Dead Yet", he recalls his scene, which was shot in two ways, a longer original version, and a truncated version he thought was inferior. According to Collins, Dustin Hoffman disliked the longer version and urged director Steven Spielberg to go with it. Spielberg explained that he had to use the shorter version during an after-party at the film's premiere. See more »

Goofs

When Smee and Hook are trying to prove that Banning is Peter Pan, they come across the scar Hook had given him when reducing Tiger Lily to which Banning says it is his "appendix", it is on the left side of his stomach; not the right which is where the appendix is. See more »

Maggie: [as Wendy in the play] Boy, why are you crying?

THE definitive childhood film of my generation.
22 September 2018 | by lwhalen-18184See all my reviews

I will make this review simple: I was born in 1987. I love this movie. If you are near me in age, you probably do too. I dont really know how to explain it, but some people know exactly why this film is so popular with the middle-millenial.

BANGARANG!
