Peter Pan (Robin Williams) has grown up to be a cut-throat merger and acquisitions lawyer, and is married to Wendy's (Dame Maggie Smith's) granddaughter, Moira (Caroline Goodall). Captain James Hook (Dustin Hoffman) kidnaps his children, Jack (Charlie Korsmo) and Maggie (Amber Scott), and Peter returns to Neverland with Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts). With the help of her and the Lost Boys, he must remember how to be Peter Pan again in order to save his children by battling with Captain Hook once again.Written by

Peter clapping his hands to heal Tinkerbell was a reference to the times when Peter Pan was performed on-stage. Peter would ask the audience to clap to heal Tink. In Peter Pan (1953), the clapping was left out because Peter couldn't interact with the audience and ask them to clap for Tinkerbell. See more »
When Hook is giving the lesson to Jack and Maggie about why their parents hate them, he starts by underlining the word 'Hate' on a blackboard he has. However a few shots later the line that he drew to underline the word is now completely different. The line is longer and thicker. See more »

Boy, why are you crying?
Peter Pan in Play:
I was crying, because I couldn't get my shadow to stick. Besides, I wasn't crying.

Watching it as an adult has given me a whole new perspective
Hook is another childhood favorite that still holds up well today. It runs a little long and there are some missteps (e.g. Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell), but it really does appeal to the child in me. And watching it as an adult has given me a whole new perspective on Peter Banning - including his shortcomings, fears and joys as a father. Plus, who doesn't love the imaginary banquet scene? This is a fun movie.
