In the 1991 film "Hook", Julia Roberts plays Tinkerbell in this film. In the movie when his young children are abducted by his old nemesis, Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman), middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams) returns to his magical origins as Peter Pan. As Peter, he must revisit a foggy past in which he abandoned Neverland for family life. When he left, Tinkerbell (Roberts) and the Lost Boys had to fend for themselves. Given their bitterness toward Peter for growing up -- and their allegiance to their new leader, Rufio -- the old gang is not happy to see Peter return.
