Lost Boys (Peter Pan) - Hook

In Hook, a film about a grown-up Peter Pan, there are at least two dozen Lost Boys of various ethnicity living in Neverland, whose clothes suggest that they left civilization at various times over the past century. They live in a giant tree on a tall rocky outcropping just offshore of the island. Two twins are seen in this film wearing Boy Scout uniforms, although it is unclear if they are intended to be the same twins as in the Darling's original adventure. The Lost Boys named in the film are Rufio (Dante Basco), Thud Butt (Raushan Hammond), Pockets (Isaiah Robinson), Ace (Jasen Fisher), Don't Ask (James Madio), Too Small (Thomas Tulak), Latchboy (Alex Zuckerman), and No Nap (Ahmad Stoner).

The boys are led by Rufio, who was hand-chosen by Peter as leader when he left Neverland to grow up as "Peter Banning". Initially, Rufio refuses to believe that Peter Banning is their former leader, nor do most of the boys. However Tinker Bell and the glimpse of Peter Pan that Pockets finds in Peter Banning's face convince them to train him for a showdown with Captain Hook. The Lost Boys gradually come to believe in Peter, a turning point being when he manages to beat Rufio in a heated name-calling match. When Peter finally relearns how to fly, Rufio finally realises who Peter is and gives Peter the Pan sword as a sign of apology and respect. The Lost Boys follow Peter into a climactic war with Captain Hook and the pirates, armed with improvised childlike weapons. Rufio valiantly takes on Hook while Peter rescues his daughter, Maggie. Hook manages to stab Rufio, whose dying words to Peter are "I wish I had a dad… like you." Peter's son Jack, witnessing Rufio's death at the hands of Hook, turns away from the life of a pirate and reunites with his father. Peter and Hook engage in a duel which culminates in Hook apparently being eaten alive by the momentarily resurrected crocodile that had eaten Hook's hand long ago. Before leaving Neverland, Peter selects Thud Butt to be their new leader, telling him "I want you to take care of everyone who is smaller than you," to which Thud Butt agrees.

Tootles appears as an old man. He was one of the many "orphans" whom Granny Wendy is said to have found homes for over the decades. He now seems senile, and lives with Wendy because she could not bear to send him to a retirement home. However, he is the first to recognize that Hook has returned to London. He is seen searching for something on the floor, and explains "I've lost my marbles," which Peter Banning readily agrees with. Later in Neverland, Thud Butt gives Peter a small bag containing Tootles' marbles revealing that they were his happy thoughts and he lost them literally rather than metaphorically. Tootles is ecstatic to get them back in the end, and with the help of some fairy dust that spills out of the bag, he flies out the window toward Neverland.
