Jude Law is looking suave as Captain Hook
The new photos, from DisInsider via the Daily Mail, show a familiar-yet-updated version of the iconic villain. Law can be seen sporting Hook’s iconic moustache and long hair, though he’s got dirty blonde hair, rather than the animated character’s jet black mane.
Law’s hand is hidden behind his back, so we can’t see his legendary hooked hand. The following Twitter post showcases Law’s look for the upcoming Disney live-action remake.

Who is Peter Pan‘s Captain Hook?
He’s not just the scary final act of Peter Pan’s Flight at Disneyland. Captain James Hook is an iconic character as famous as any Lost Boy. The character has been seen in multiple adaptations, including Steven Speilberg’s Hook (1991). In that version, the character was played by Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook’s diabolical mug took centre stage for the first time. Additionally, in Peter Pan (2003) the character was played by Harry Potter star Jason Isaacs. He also played Mr. Darling. Unfortunately, the character didn’t appear in the 2004 film Finding Neverland!
Hook is an iconic Disney villain known for his rivalry with both Peter Pan and the crocodile who hate his hand. He’s a fan favorite character and we can’t wait to see what Law does with the famous pirate!
