Heroes Wikia / Jayden's Adventures Wiki

This was one of my favorite films growing up and is definitely the best adaptation from the original Peter Pan story! What happens when the boy who never grows up decides to settle down and start a family?

Turns out he gets pretty uptight, but then again, if you spent your whole life lounging with mermaids and fighting pirates, being a lawyer might knock you down a peg.

Since the movie came out in 1991, the stars of this magical rescue story have had some pretty wild adventures of their own. But they can always be found in that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming...

Captain James Hook: Dustin Hoffman

Dustin Hoffman fit this role so perfectly it took me years to actually see Captain James for who he was; a mean old man without a mommy. Hoffman went on to be extraordinarily successful with a slew of movie hits like Wag The Dog, Meet The Fockers, and Kung Fu Panda.

Rufio: Dante Basco

BANGARANG! Dante Basco's character Rufio had friction with our hero, but had us weeping by the end of it all. Basco has had a great career in voice acting (maybe his face is too recognizable?) which includes American Dragon: Jake Long, the Avatar series, and even helped with an unofficial prequel to Hook that focused on Rufio's origin.

Tinkerbell: Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts made for the perfect "Tink", where she courageously stood up for herself and her friends, even hinting at her feelings for Peter, despite knowing it could never be. Roberts has since become a superstar playing in blockbusters like Runaway Bride, Erin Brockovich, Ocean's Eleven, and Eat Pray Love.

Mr. Smee: Bob Hoskins

A totally overlooked role in this classic movie, Mr. Smee has always brought the comic relief and there was no better actor to play him than Bob Hoskins. Hoskins had reached critical acclaim through theater and his role in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He kept his momentum in the industry by starring in roles for Nixon, Enemy at the Gates, and the British drama series The Street, for which he won an international Emmy before passing away in 2014 from Parkinson's disease.

Gutless: Glenn Close

Wait a minute, what?! It's true, the pirate who got thrown into the "Booboo Box" was none other than Glenn Close in a gender-swapping cameo. This actress, singer, and producer had graced our stages and screens for decades. Some well-known roles include Cruella de Vil in Disney's live-action 101 Dalmations, The Stepford Wives, Damages, Love, Marilyn, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
