The 1991 star-studded fantasy-adventure is getting a 4K upgrade this October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing Hook for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on October 9.
A high-flying adventure from the magic of Steven Spielberg, Hook stars Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as the infamous Captain Hook. Joining the fun is Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as the pirate Smee, and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy Darling, who must convince middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning that he was once the legendary Peter Pan. And so the adventure begins anew, with Peter off to Neverland to save his two children from Captain Hook. Along the way, he rediscovers the power of imagination, friendship, and of magic. A classic tale updated for children of all ages, Hook was nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Visual Effects in 1991.
The release will feature a 4K RESTORATION FROM THE ORIGINAL CAMERA NEGATIVE, with approval on the 4K High Dynamic Range master from director Steven Spielberg; 11 Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes; and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
