Season 3 Casting ‘Hook’s’ Infamous Rufio (report)

Posted on the 04 July 2013 by Bittersweet1975 @onceupon_fans

Once Upon a Time season 3 is allegedly adding Rufio, the fan favorite character from the Peter Pan adaptation movie Hook. Come on everybody, all together now… Ru-fi-o! Ru-fi-o!


While the Once Upon a Time creators are adamant about keeping the casting of Peter Pan a secret, season 3 will see the addition of several other familiar characters.

And it looks like one of these is Rufio, an original character from the iconic Steven Spielberg movie Hook, which starred Robin Williams (Peter Pan), Dustin Hoffman (Hook) and Julia Roberts (Tinkerbell).

Rufio (Dante Basco) is the leader of the Lost Boys, who took over the group when Peter Pan left them to be with Wendy’s granddaughter Moira.

When Peter returns as a grown-up, Rufio refuses to believe that it’s him, but ultimately admits that he’s wrong, dying in Peter’s arms after being killed by Hook.

The character is perhaps best known for the catchy chant “Ru-fi-o! Ru-fi-o,” and whatever else happens, we hope that Once Upon a Time somehow manages to work this in!
