Box set containing three popular family movies. In 'Hook' (1991), busy American lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams) takes his family to London for a holiday with Granny Wendy (Maggie Smith). But the visit takes an unexpected turn when Peter's kids are abducted by the villainous Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman), forcing the lawyer to confront his past and accept that he is the grown-up Peter Pan. With the help of the tomboy fairy Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), he then returns to Never-Never Land ready to confront his old crocodile-hating enemy and win back his family. 'Oliver!' (1968) is the musical version of the classic Dickens tale. Young orphan Oliver (Mark Lester) suffers under a harsh regime at the workhouse run by Mr Bumble (Harry Secombe). He manages to escape, and, after meeting a friendly pickpocket known as the Artful Dodger (Jack Wild), joins a gang of street thieves operated by the disreputable Fagin (Ron Moody). Although happy with his new friends, Oliver takes a dislike to Fagin's violent and aggressive colleague, Bill Sykes (Oliver Reed). In 'Annie' (1981), Annie (Aileen Quinn) lives a miserable life in an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan (Carol Burnett). A chance of escape and happiness comes Annie's way when she meets billionaire 'Daddy' Warbucks (Albert Finney), but Hannigan and her colleagues soon conspire to get Annie back.
