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

Imaginary Food Fights Were Had

It wouldn’t be a Hook reunion without frosting food fights.

Even ‘Young Peter Pan’ Grew Up

You may remember the flashback scenes where we see young Peter Pan, played by Ryan Francis. He’s all grown up now too, but still fitting into those smashing tights.

Remembering ‘The Pan’, Robin Williams

While this reunion was noticeably missing ‘The Pan’, Robin Williams, who died two years ago this month, Dante Basco still recreated the emotional scene where Rufio hands his gold sword to Robin and says “You are the Pan”. Indeed, Robin Williams was and is Peter Pan. There will never be one better.

And Finally, The Inevitable Group Shot

If you didn’t have a childhood, you might think there’s a new hipster boy band in town… Oh how wrong you would be! Bangarang!

Whether you’re old, young, or somewhere in between, you’re never too old for the childhood innocence and magic of Neverland, as the cast of Hook clearly demonstrated with this reunion. While these photos may make us all feel a little older, Robin Williams’ closing line of the movie still rings true. “To live, to live would be an awfully big adventure.”

Hook can be purchased or rented through Amazon Video, so what are you waiting for? Grab some popcorn, your kids, and some pixie dust, and return to Neverland once more.
