Gerald du Maurier as Captain Hook

Captain James Hook is the villain of J. M. Barrie's play and novel Peter Pan. Hook is a pirate captain and Peter Pan's nemesis.

The character of James Hook was first portrayed onstage in 1904 by Gerald du Maurier, and was at least in part tailored to him, as du Maurier was well acquainted with Barrie and in fact was uncle to the Davies children, who were Barrie's inspiration for Peter Pan.

==Peter Pan and Wendy== In Peter Pan and Wendy Captain Hook is the main villain. Captain Hook is both admirable and detestable, being a villainous gentleman in that he understands that there is a right and wrong way to commit evil deeds. In Barrie's play and novel, Hook captures Wendy Darling, the girl who loves Peter and whom Peter views as his surrogate mother, and challenges the boy to a final duel. When Hook is beaten Peter Pan kicks him overboard to the open jaws of the waiting crocodile below. Just before dying, however, he takes a final jab at Peter by taunting him about his "bad form". Peter, with the callousness of youth, quickly forgets Hook and finds a new nemesis, but as Hook made a stronger impression on the public, most sequels brought him back one way or another. Wendy Moira Angela Darling is a fictional heroine and main female protagonist in the Peter Pan stories by J.M. Barrie, in all their theatrical, literary, and motion picture adaptations. ...


Lest anyone think Hook's name too convenient, Barrie notes that "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze." Barrie also suggests through several clues that the Captain was an Old Etonian — this was confirmed in Barrie's speech delivered to the first hundred at Eton College, "Captain Hook at Eton". In the stage play Peter Pan, Hook's final words are "Floreat Etona", the College's motto. The Kings College of Our Lady of Eton beside Windsor, commonly known as Eton College or just Eton, is a public school (privately funded and independent) for boys, founded in 1440 by King Henry VI.

Personality

Hook has a somewhat double-sided nature: although he is a ruthless pirate captain, at times he seems almost compassionate. He is hurt by the fact the children despise him, even though he has caused their hate himself. Barrie says Hook is often melancholy; the only time he is thrilled is when he is "plunging" his hook into a victim. Barrie also says Hook is a wonderful storyteller - he loves flowers and sweet music. He is also a talented musician, playing the flute in the stage play and the harpsichord in the novel and Disney film. He apparently smokes, as he devised a special double cigar-holder. There are many suggestions that Barrie based the character of Hook on himself, and they share the same first name. â™  This article is about the family of musical instruments. ...

In a published speech by J.M Barrie titled "Captain Hook at Eton", given to pupils at Eton College in 1927, Barrie describes Hook's love of poetry, particularly that of the Lake Poets, and also his sporting and academic achievements whilst at school. According to Barrie: "his sympathies were with the classical rather than the modern side. In politics he was a Conservative". As in Peter Pan, Hook is described as lonely, regretful and depressed, writing in the ships' log: "Better, perhaps, for Hook that he had never been born". Hook displays narcissistic tendencies. The Kings College of Our Lady of Eton beside Windsor, commonly known as Eton College or just Eton, is a public school (privately funded and independent) for boys, founded in 1440 by King Henry VI.

Appearance

In Peter Pan and Wendy, Hook is described as "cadaverous" and "blackavised", with blue eyes and long dark curls which look like "black candles" at a distance; in the film Hook, Captain Hook's hair is simply a wig. He has a hook in place of his right hand (this is often switched to his left hand in film adaptations). Captain Hook is often portrayed wearing a large feathered hat, a red or blue coat, and knee breeches. Barrie also later wrote of him as "In a word, the handsomest man I have ever seen, though, at the same time, perhaps slightly disgusting" (J.M Barrie, "Captain Hook at Eton" in Mconnachie & JMB Speeches By J M Barrie). Hook is a 1991 family action/adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins and Maggie Smith. ...

The symbolism of Peter Pan's fight with Captain Hook (traditionally played by the same actor as Wendy's father in the play and most film versions), combined with Hook's fear of time in the form of the ticking crocodile, possibly hints at Jungian subtext.

It is hypothesized that Captain Hook was modeled after the famous English captain Christopher Newport. Both were dark-haired captains of dubious pasts, and both were missing their right hands which were replaced by metal hooks. Newport commanded the ships that landed the settlers at Jamestown in Virginia. He also seems to have a distinctive similarity to Bartholomew Roberts, especially regarding his choice of clothes and his impeccable manners, although Barrie specifically associates his dress and hairstyle with that of King Charles II of England.

Peter Pan in Scarlet

Geraldine McCaughrean's "Official" Sequel to Peter Pan gives Peter a 'new' nemesis, while bringing back the old favorite.


Ravello, a Circus Man in a constantly ragged woolen coat, is revealed to be none other than James Hook, who escaped the crocodile, when the muscle contractions meant to crush and digest him broke the vial of poison he kept with him at all times. The poison killed the crocodile, and Hook used his hook to claw out, but he was a changed man. The Scarred Visage that emerged from the crocodile's belly was not the noble Pirate who went forthwith from the deck of the Jolly Roger, he was changed into Ravello--the traveling man--the Ravelling Man. Only upon receiving Wendy's kiss, and five weeks' worth of sleep, does the real James Hook again reveal himself.


Hook gives another clue to his true identity when one of the Lost Boys asks Ravello his name: He thinks for a while, as if trying to remember, and finally says the name his mother gave him was Crichton, but that names given by mothers don't mean anything.


One of Ravello's trophies is an Eton trophy dated 1894. If Hook was 18 - the last year of an Etonian - in that year, then he was born in 1876, a full one-hundred and one years after his appearance at The Pirates' Conference [see below], and even further after the times of Blackbeard and Long John Silver, but this could be an extension of the magic of Neverland.

Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth

According to the novel Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth, Captain Hook was born the illegitimate son of a nobleman, "Lord B", and an unnamed woman Hook has never met. Denounced by Lord B, James Matthew is brought up by a Shakespearean actress he calls Aunt Emily. When he is fifteen he unwillingly attends Eton College as an Oppidan scholar.


James strives to reach the top of his class at Eton. He is an avid reader of the Shakespeare and Shelley, and his motto is "Knowledge is Power". He describes many things as first rate - "Topping Swank", and he punctuates his sentences with "The End." He is very interested in the French Revolution. The French Revolution (1789–1815) was a period of political and social upheaval in the political history of France and Europe as a whole, during which the French governmental structure, previously an absolute monarchy with feudal privileges for the aristocracy and Catholic clergy, underwent radical change to forms based on...


In the novel James has only a few friends - Roger Peter Davies, whom he nicknames "Jolly Roger" and later names his ship after; and his pet Electra, a fatally poisonous spider with a hook-shaped marking on her abdomen. However, James Matthew has many enemies, particularly Arthur Darling, a seventeen-year-old Colleger, whom he rivals in studies, fencing, sports, and the attentions of the visiting Ottoman Sultana Ananova Ariadne. Although James successfully wooes Ananova, their mutual affection sets off a chain of political outrage that affects the noble position of Lord B. Lord B selfishly arranges for James to leave Eton on his trading ship, the Sea Witch. But the deeply hurt James doesn't leave without defeating Arthur in a final fencing duel, terrifying him with a homemade guillotine. He also burns his own school records so there would be no traces of his well-liked "notorious" behavior. Ottoman redirects here. ... This article is about the decapitation device. ...


James leaves Eton with Jolly Roger. Once on the trading ship, he meets the boatswain Bartholomew Quigley Smeethington, generally called Smee. Smee and all the other sailors live in terror of their ruthless captain, who, in a cruel twist, also happens to be a Christian priest. James, as always, is able to empathize with the underdogs. When James discovers in horror that his father is a slave trader, he frees the slaves on the ship and overthrows the ship's captain (who then is killed by Electra), and then murders the quartermaster with a metal hook.

Throughout Capt. Hook, author J.V. Hart relates events in James Matthew B's life to events in James Matthew Barrie's life and the lives of the Llewellyn-Davies children; including naming James' arch-enemy after the Llewellyn-Davies' father. But the author mainly expands upon details in Barrie's original play and novel, while changing a few key points - he ascribes James' strange coloring and yellow blood to a blood disorder; James' long dark hair is natural, rather than the usually suggested wig; James is christened "Hook" after murdering the quartermaster of the Sea Witch, rather than in reference to his iron arm (in the original novel, Hook was known as "Hook" before he lost his hand, so this is consistent).


Peter and the Starcatchers

In the novel Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Captain Hook is at his nastiest - he is described as greasy and filthy, with terrible breath, beady black eyes, and a pock-marked face. He eats raw meat in his room, often leaving the food on his bed. This grotesque image of Hook contrasts strongly with J. M. Barrie's Etonian gentleman. In Peter and the Starcatchers, which takes place before the captain meets Peter Pan, Hook is called "Black Stache", probably because of his moustache, and his ship is called the Sea Devil - he obtains the Jolly Roger after using a corset-shaped sail to attack a British ship named the Wasp. In this prequel, although Peter cuts off Hook's hand, he supposedly does it by accident, and he does not throw Hook's hand to the crocodile; the animal simply gobbles it up in passing. Black Stache is renamed Captain Hook in the second installment, Peter and the Shadow Thieves. In both novels, Hook is the lesser villain; second to the seaman Slank in Peter and the Starcatchers, and second to Lord Ombra in Peter and the Shadow Thieves.

Captain James Hook

Hook in the Walt Disney version of Peter Pan.
First appearance Peter Pan (1953)
Created by Walt Disney Pictures
Voiced by Hans Conried (Peter Pan (1953))
Corey Burton (Modern animation)
Chikao Ōtsuka (Kingdom Hearts)
Also known as J. Hook

The version of Captain Hook who appears in the Disney animated film adaptation of Peter Pan is a cowardly fool, prone to crying out for help as well as being called a codfish and having his clothes repeatedly ruined (always starting with his hat), and had the hook in place of his left hand instead of his right (supposedly, the animators wanted Hook to be able to do things that are usually simpler to do with the right hand). Though he has his evil moments, Hook is overall a comically inept villain compared to other Disney villains such as Jafar, Scar or Maleficent. He apparently loves loopholes in contracts or deals — after he promises Tinker Bell that he will not lay a finger (or a hook) on Peter, he then lays a bomb in Peter's hideout, since he didn't say he wouldn't do that. In the film, Hook is voiced by and modeled after Hans Conried, who provided the same talents for Mr. Darling. Frank Thomas was the directing animator of Hook.

Hook subsequently appeared in a number of other Disney productions, such as the 2002 film Return to Never Land. There, Hook had finally managed to get rid of Tick-Tock somehow, but he was replaced by a just-as-hungry octopus, who, in fact, actually (and quite ironically) mistakes Hook for a codfish. At the end of the film Hook and his crew were in a rowboat and got chased out of Neverland. Hook also appeared frequently on Disney's House of Mouse, and was one of the main villains of Mickey's House of Villains. In Mickey's House of Villains, he is portrayed as Jafar's (leader of the villains) second-in-command. He also appeared in Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse.

Captain Hook appears in the Action/RPG game Kingdom Hearts, in cooperation with Maleficent and other villains. He uses his pirate ship to get himself between worlds. He takes Riku along with him, where Kairi is being held. However, he does not like Riku's bossiness and regrets taking him along. When Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive in Neverland, Riku throws them in the hold where they meet and escape with Peter Pan, who is searching for his friend Wendy. Captain Hook believed that Wendy was a "Princess of Heart" and that is why he captured her. However, Riku reports to him from Maleficent that Wendy is not a Princess of heart at all, irritating Hook. After defeating the Heartless below deck, Sora fights a copy of himself summoned by Riku in Hook's office. After confronting Hook on the deck, Sora and company realize that Riku escaped to Hollow Bastion with Kairi. Hook then flees to his office. Using a voice imitation of Smee, Hook's right hand man, Peter Pan tricks Hook into thinking everything is all clear. Hook returns to the deck and is thrown into a fight with Sora and others. He proves a powerful swordsman and bomb expert, but no match for the Keyblade. Hook is thrown overboard and is chased into the horizon by his arch nemesis the Crocodile.

Captain Hook was released in the Disney Store exclusive toyline Disney Heroes, a slightly stylized version of the classic animation model, replacing the small hook with a metal forearm and larger, more angular hook.

Something worth noting, although Peter Pan is themed around a hatred of mother-figures, in nearly every Disney film and sequel there is a mention of Hook's "mommy". In Disney's Return to Neverland the Captain holds a portrait of his two-hooked mother, and in Disney-published Peter and the Starcatchers, Hook is said to have marooned his mother.

Peter Pan and the Pirates

In 1990, Fox produced the television series Peter Pan and the Pirates. Appearance wise, Hook was more early 18th Century rather than the classic Charles II Restoration period. He also had white hair, rather than black. Hook's personality however was again far closer to Barrie's original character. Fox's Hook was much more complex again. He terrified his crew, was brutal towards his enemies, had no fear, showed great intelligence and was passionate about plays by William Shakespeare. He was voiced by Tim Curry, who won an Emmy Award for this part. {Ironically one episode indirectly revealed-via alternative timelines-that the reason Hook's pirates never succeed at anything is because of Hook himself!} While the original version of Hook was said to have learned the pirating trade as the cabin boy of Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, this version learned it as the Midshipman of his elder brother, a notorious pirate who commanded a frigate called "The Rake". Originally engaged to a young woman, one Christmas Day raid saw the Hook brothers (Hook's name in this account is given as "James Hook") capture a ship transporting Hook's fiancee, Cecilia. Also on a Christmas day, perhaps the same day, the two brothers had a disagreement over the sharing of the loot, fighting a duel which saw Hook leave the ship after gouging out his brother's eye, thus earning him the moniker of "Captain Patch". While Hook eventually found his way to Neverland, and thus a form of immortality, Patch perished somewhere, his treasure eventually ending up in Neverland.

Hook

In the film Hook, Captain James Hook is played by Dustin Hoffman. Hook kidnaps Peter Banning's children to lure his archenemy back. He then negotiates with Tinkerbell to let the out-of-shape Peter have three days to rekindle his spirit. He is somewhat depressed since Peter Pan, now named Peter Banning (played by Robin Williams), has left Neverland, and worries he has nothing left to accomplish, having killed the crocodile and made it into a foundation for a clock tower. He wants to have a grand war with Peter to end all wars on Neverland, but is upset to learn Peter has grown up and has forgotten everything. He also has grown tired of killing Lost Boys. In one scene, he attempts to shoot himself, after which he comments, "Death is the only adventure I have left." Hook is a 1991 family action/adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins and Maggie Smith. ...

At the same time, Hook tries to attempt to brainwash the children by saying the father never loved them, and he is successful with Peter's son, Jack. Peter does return and gets his children back, and to give Hook the final battle he desires. In the end he dies, ironically "eaten" by the croc who seems to temporarily come back to life, and his final words were "I want my mummy!"


In the film, Hook's hook is on his left hand due to Hoffman being right-handed. A person who is right-handed is more dextrous with their right hand than with their left hand: they will write with their right hand, and probably also use this hand for tasks such as personal care, cooking, and so on. ...

In the Japanese manga One Piece, the character of Sir Crocodile, one of the most powerful pirates of the series, seems to be inspired by Hook. The idea behind Crocodile's hook seems to have come from this famous fictional pirate, specially considering the fact he is the only pirate so far in One Piece to have a hook. Other aspects about Crocodile come from Peter Pan in general, such as his name which is from the beast that hunted Captain Hook. Unlike Hook however, Crocodile did not fear crocodiles and even kept several unusually large ones as pets. Crocodile also uses a clocktower to hide a bomb that he intended to kill his enemies with. Crocodile also smoked cigars, though not in the same way as Hook did. Like Captain Hook's main enemy, Peter Pan, who was a young boy living in a dream world, one of Sir Crocodile's enemies was Monkey D. Luffy, who is also a young boy full of dreams.
