Rufio and the Lost Boys From ‘Hook’ All Grew Up and Did a 25th-Anniversary Reunion Photo Shoot

When Peter Pan, played by the beloved Robin Williams, returned to Neverland as an adult to rescue his captured children in the classic 1991 film Hook nearly 25 years ago, the rag-tag band of orphaned ‘Lost Boys’ gave him quite the hazing. “All grown-ups are pirates!”, they shouted. In an ironic twist of events, the Lost Boys have now found themselves in a similar position. Like Peter, they all moved on with their lives, but also like Peter, they’ve found their way back to Neverland after all these years—25 years later to be exact, and of course, all grown up.

Production company 22Vision recently reunited all of the original Lost Boys for the first time since the movie’s release for a once-in-a-lifetime return to Neverland. Here are some of the photos from this magical photo shoot full of happy thoughts.

Then and Now

22Vision did an excellent job of recreating the look, feel, and even poses of the Lost Boys.

Rufio was the Lost Boy that every kid wanted to be. Dante Basco, who portrayed Rufio in the film, is even holding the same sword from the movie in this photo.

‘Thud Butt’

If you didn’t remember the names of the non-Rufio Lost Boys, you’re not alone. You’re about to get an education, though! Here’s Raushan Hammond. We’d like to know if he can still do that impressively flexible rolling into a bowling ball maneuver.

‘Don’t Ask’

Yep. “Don’t Ask” was the actual name of the Lost Boy played by James Madio.

Isaiah Robinson may have been the youngest Lost Boy, but his childlike innocence allowed him to be the first to see that Peter Banning was really Peter Pan.

‘Sooner’ and ‘Later’

The two kids who Tinker Bell motivates, played by twins Bryan and Brett Willis, recreated that very scene.
