The Lost Boys From Robin Williams' 'Hook' Look Unrecognisable 25 Years Later

Almost unbelievably, it's been 25 years since Hook was released. Despite living in Neverland, the Lost Boys had to grow up.

In this awesome photoshoot, 22 Vision got the actors to come in and compare what they look like now to what they looked like back in the day.

As we approach the anniversary of Robin Williams' death, it's particularly fitting that the cast paid tribute to Peter Pan himself.


How sick was Hook though?! I remember watching it and just thinking how amazing it would be to get to play on those massive sets. It was like the pirate ship from The Goonies but EVEN BETTER.

The group consisted of Dante Basco (Rufio), Raushan Hammond (Thud Butt), Isaiah Robinson (Pockets), Ryan Francis (Young Peter Pan), James Madio (Don't Ask), Thomas Tulak (Too Small), Bo Gheorghe (Noseminer), Bryan & Brett Willis (Sooner & Later), and Ahmad Stoner (No Nap).

The biggest transformation has to be Thomas Tulak who appears to have gone from a small lad to some kind of Spanish God.












ET spoke to the group about Robin Williams and the effect he had on them growing up.

Basco said: "I think for all of us [Robin's death] was the death of our childhood.

"There's sadness there, also there's a lot of space to kinda celebrate one of the most legendary artists of our time. [He] really taught me at a young age what it means to be a star, what it means to be a leader on a set.

"Everything you want Robin Williams to be he delivered in spades."

Tulak added: "It was like his mission to make sure everyone around him is happy and laughing all the time."

What an incredible man.

The group were all between the ages of six to 17 years old at the time of filming; they've now all moved on into different things.

Rufio (Dante Basco)

Dante still works in showbiz, and he's currently writing and producing. He also does a lot of voice over work.

Thud Butt (Raushan Hammond)

Believe it or not, Raushan is now a world-renowned magician and illusionist. Who'd have thought it?!

Don't Ask (James Madio)

The married dad of two is still in film and TV. Nah seriously, he's a dad now. How mad is that.

Sooner & Later (Brett & Bryan Willis)

The twins are now both married with children. However, the life of fame wasn't for them. They both ended up as firefighters and both worked their way up to Fire Captain in separate fire houses.

Noseminer (Bo Georghe)

Bo was originally cast in the movie due to his gymnastic abilities. After filming ended he carried on pursuing that dream and won a California State title in his division. He now owns a graphic design agency in LA.

No Nap (Ahmad Stoner)

Stoner gave up acting and has recently launched a tech company in Texas.

Pockets (Isaiah Robinson)

According to ET, Robinson is now an accomplished musician, composer, and teacher.

Too Small (Thomas Tulak)

Tulak has absolutely smashed it and is an award-winning independent filmmaker, director, and YouTuber.

Young Peter Pan (Ryan Francis)

Francis is now based in LA where he's a successful filmmaker. He wrote, directed & produced the movie Do Over.

So it turns out that growing up wasn't so bad after all.

Who else is going to go and watch Hook tonight? 8pm. Mine. Bring popcorn.
