“I have always felt like Peter Pan. I still feel like Peter Pan. It has been very hard for me to grow up, I’m a victim of the Peter Pan syndrome.” — Steven Spielberg, 1985.

Spielberg’s connection to J.M. Barrie’s 1911 play Peter Pan and the mythos that now surrounds it goes much deeper than most people might know. Starting in his childhood when his mother used to read him Peter and Wendy as a bedtime story, or when he later directed a school production of it, Spielberg has always loved the tale of the boy who can’t grow up.

His dream to create a new Peter Pan movie came to fruition with Hook, which turns 25 this December. Though not a major success for TriStar, Hook has become a fan favorite with a dedicated cult following.
