Back in February, Hook star Dante Basco launched a successful Kickstarter for Bangarang, a short film about the origins of his character Rufio. The result is the 14-minute short film below. Clearly, it was made with a lot of love.
This is the story about Rufio, before the mohawk, before Neverland, before he was The Pan.
Roofus is a 13-year-old kid who is destined to be more than he is. After his mother is forced to put him into a foster home, he and his rag-tag group of best friends – a Jamaican boy named Julani and a bright-eyed latina force of nature named Ella – find a way for Roofus to escape his ill fate, find his happy thought and fulfill his destiny.
