25 Years On, Hook's Lost Boys Reunite To Remember Robin Williams
Just last week we honoured the 25th anniversary of classic kids film Hook by hunting down all the Lost Boys and finding out what they're up to these days.
Thudbutt's a magician, Wendy steam cleans her vagina (she was played by Gwyneth Paltrow, remember?) and Rufio's 40 years old - just some revelations that left us feeling bitter sweet.
The cast clearly heard our call for more, more, more, because now they've come together to honour the film and its star Robin Williams, who tragically died 2 years ago.
Recreating key scenes from the film, the Lost Boys have joined up for an iconic photoshoot that will make you feel things. Some bad, some good, mostly depressingly existential (we are old and so are the Lost Boys, boo hoo).

We haven't seen each other in quite some time but I almost feel like there was no lost time,”James Madio (“Don’t Ask”) shared with ET's Denny Directo. “We just picked it up right away where we were and just reminiscing about everything. It's just really cool.”
“Hook is just one of those movies that people really grew up on,” he said. “To get them together to remember Robin and celebrate this milestone is something that I loved being a part of.”
“You have to understand, when you're 15 and you're doing this Steven Spielberg movie with megastars... Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts... you know you want to be cool,” said Dante Basco, who played Rufio.
“I don’t know how cool I’m going to look with my belly button out!” I mean, through the months it grew on me and now, I mean, years later it's become this iconic, iconic look that people cosplay around the world.”
“I think for all of us [Robin’s death] was the death of our childhood,” Basco said of the loss of Robin Williams.

“There's sadness there, also there's a lot of space to kinda celebrate one of the most legendary artists of our time.”
“[Robin] really taught me at a young age what it means to be a star, what it means to be a leader on a set,” he continued. “Everything you want Robin Williams to be he delivered in spades.”
“He kept the set very alive,” Madio said. “He made sure that he had a relationship with each and every one of us.”
“It was like his mission to make sure everyone around him is happy and laughing all the time,” Tulak added.
"That's what I think his power was: his reach and being able to make anybody... even through a television screen or a movie screen-- make you feel so great,” Ryan Francis (who played “Young Peter Pan”) contended.
