Hook, the Robin Williams-helmed Peter Pan sequel that’s turned into something of a cult classic, is turning 25 later this year. And to mark the special occasion, Peter Pan’s Lost Boys donned their old costumes for a special, pixie dust-filled reunion.

The Lost Boys are all grown up—and they’re getting back into their old costumes to recreate some of Hook’s iconic scenes for a photo shoot. That means lots of colors, mish-mashed clothing, and in the case of Dante Basco, who played ringleader Rufio, that meant wearing his iconic feather mohawk and cropped, midriff-bearing top.

22 Vision, which has photographed other recent cast reunions such as The Little Rascals and School of Rock, helmed the project. And according to 22 Vision CEO/Producer Brian Pocrass, the photoshoot was two years in the making.

While the photo shoot was a way to mark Hook’s big milestone, it was also a way for them to pay tribute to Williams as the second anniversary of his death approaches. The Lost Boys, who were anywhere from 6 to 17 years old when they filmed Hook, remember Williams fondly , and according to Thomas Tulak (who played Too Small), Williams made it “his mission to make sure everyone around him is happy and laughing all the time.”

As Basco told Entertainment Tonight: “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.”

You can view all of the reunion photos on 22 Vision’s Facebook page.
