25 years after Never-Never Land, the Lost Boys of "Hook" meet again.
Get ready to feel soooo old: The Lost Boys of the 1991 Steven Spielberg movie “Hook” have reunited — and yes, like most of us, they’ve changed a bit in 25 years, but can still strike a mean pose. The actors ranged in age from 6 to 17 during the film’s production, and now have a variety of careers: several are actors and filmmakers; others are a musician, firefighter, tech entrepreneur, graphic artist. The reunion was intended both to celebrate the film’s quarter-century, and also to honor the memory of their Peter Pan, Robin Williams, who died two years ago.
“I think for all of us [Robin’s death] was the death of our childhood,” Dante Basco (“Rufio”) said of the loss, to ET. “There’s sadness there, also there’s a lot of space to kinda celebrate one of the most legendary artists of our time.” Thomas Tulak (“Too Small”) added, “It was like his mission to make sure everyone around him is happy and laughing all the time.”
