25 Things to Love about Hook!

Hook turns 25 today so what better to celebrate that than coming up with plenty of things to love about the very different tale of Peter Pan? Even if like myself you do not want to admit that one of your childhood favourites is this old as it also means you are therefore older than the film!

I have always seen this as my Peter Pan film as other than the Disney animated version this was the newest one that came out when I was a kid and plus Robin Williams totally owned the 1990s when it came to kids films. He really was our actor, the best thing I think is that these performances have stood the test of time and are really something special.

I just love what Steven Spielberg was doing with this story though what if he did grow up, how would he actually be in life? Would he remember Neverland or was that all just a silly “dream”. I know this film seems to get a little flack but I certainly love it, always have and always will!

Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts about the film! Was this your Peter Pan story? As we certainly have had plenty more since this was released 25 years ago and I still think it is the best one we have had in that time, even though many have tried to re-invent it I think this remains so unique.


1. Robin Williams is Peter Pan!

2. Peter actually grew up and got away from Neverland.

3. He’s still friends with Wendy though, who accuses him of being a pirate now even though he doesn’t understand it yet! tumblr_mv3bdillbj1qemo6mo8_500_zpsvgkuhg4b
