Captain Hook as he appears originally in Peter Pan.

Captain Hook is a pirate who wants revenge on Peter Pan since he cut off his hand and fed it to the crocodile. Wanting to find her hideout, he kidnaps her friend Tiger Lilly to find out, threatening to drown her, but is stopped by Peter, who fights Hook, with the latter fleeing once the crocodile arrives.

After discovering the argument that Peter Pan had with the fairy Tinker Bell, Hook tricks her into discovering the whereabouts of Peter's hiding place. After discovering this, Hook kidnaps Peter's friends, and leaves him a package with a bomb.

On his ship, Hook tries to get Peter's friends to join his crew, threatening to throw them into the sea, but is stopped by Peter, who survived the explosion. After a battle between Peter and his friends against Hook and his crew, Hook ends up falling into the sea, where he is chased by the crocodile.

Descendants: The Rise of Red[]

Red and Chloe meet young Hook in the past as a student at Merlin Academy and a member of Uliana's group. He and the rest of Uliana's Gang appear while Bridget is handing out cupcakes to the students, until Uliana snatches them and eats the decorative flamingo feathers, whereupon Hook and the rest of her gang mock Bridget. But the feathers make Uliana's face transform into that of a flamingo, and after chasing Bridget for it without success, she and her gang retreat.

On the way to Uliana's lair in the Black Lagoon, Hook uses his hook to swat away bugs. Once at her lair, the gang plans revenge on Bridget, intending to steal the Sorcerer's Cookbook for it.

At Merlin Academy, after leaving Morgie watching, Hook goes with Uliana, Maleficent and Hades to Principal Merlin's office to look for the book. After finding it on the floor, they open it, but the book causes the four to become petrified. Because of this, Red and Chloe, who were already there, appear before them, snatching the book, and Red takes the opportunity to take off Hook's boots and give them to Chloe to replace the ones she had. After that, Principal Merlin arrives, finding the four young villains petrified, and telling them that as punishment they will be like this for a long time.
