Run-throughs: When Captain Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan should return to Neverland and reclaim his younger spirit in order to challenge his old opponent.
Hook is a 1991 American fantasy adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg  and composed by James V. Hart and Malia Scotch Marmo. It stars Robin Williams as Peter Banning/ Peter Pan, Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook, Julia Roberts as Tinker Bell, Bob Hoskins as Smee, Maggie Smith as Wendy, Caroline Goodall as Moira Banning, and Charlie Korsmo as Jack Banning.
It acts as a follow up to J. M. Barrie’s 1911 unique Peter and Wendy focusing on an adult Peter Pan who has forgotten all about his youth. In his new life, he is known as Peter Banning, a successful however unimaginative and workaholic business attorney with a spouse (Wendy’s granddaughter) and 2 kids. However, when Captain Hook, the opponent of his past, abducts his children, he returns to Neverland in order to conserve them. Along the journey he recovers the memories of his past and ends up being a better person.
Steven Spielberg filters J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan through a distinctly 1990s perceptiveness in Hook. Peter Pan has become Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a 40-year-old mergers and acquisitions attorney with a long-term scowl on his face and a mobile phone in his belt. Banning has actually lost any memory of being Peter Pan, and he is likewise in danger of losing his other half Moira (Caroline Goodall) and two kids, Jack (Charlie Korsmo) and Maggie (Amber Scott).
Peter and his household travel to London to check out Granny Wendy (Maggie Smith) who remembers Peter’s lost youth and asks him, “Peter, dear, do not you know who you are?” With Peter’s children asleep in the very same bedroom where the initial Peter Pan story began, there is a blinding flash. Peter enters into the space to find a note from Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman), notifying Peter that he has actually kidnapped his kids. Granny Wendy now informs him who he really is and motivates him to re-discover his pleased thoughts, transform himself into the Peter Pan of the past, and go rescue his children.
With the support of Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), Peter recalls the birth of his kid and once again takes wing. Then it’s off to Never Land to rescue his kids.
