Many of you will no doubt recognise the quote from a movie instalment of a much-loved and famous film (and other media) franchise, which was released in December 1991.

That movie is of course Hook.

It repeated the same line as used in the Disney release of Peter Pan, from 1953. The line originated in the original book by J. M. Barrie: Peter and Wendy, published in 1911, although in the book version the word "star" did not appear. The line was rendered as "second to the right, and straight on till morning".

Oh, yes, there was another film that premiered in December 1991, a mere 5 days before Hook, which borrowed the line as well. A little matter called Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
