A high-flying adventure from the magic of Steven Spielberg, HOOK stars Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as the infamous Captain Hook. Joining the fun is Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as the pirate Smee, and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy Darling, who must convince the middle-aged lawyer, Peter Banning, that he was once the legendary Peter Pan. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, of friendship, and of magic. A classic tale updated for children of all ages, HOOK was nominated for five 1991 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.
Nominated: Best Art Direction: Set Decoration, Best Effects: Visual Effects, 1992 Academy Awards
It's sort of like 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'It's a Small World' rolled into one. It's a helluva contraption, and certainly one to be marveled at. It gives a good ride.
