Bangarang : Rufio Before Hook
As we know here at GameOctane, Kickstarter is a great way to raise money for those that are in need of backing awesome projects. Bangarang is exactly that but more. If you are thinking to yourself that the word Bangarang sounds familiar, you may remember a great film about Peter Pan who lost his way, and with the help of the Lost Boys found his youth and soul again while saving his own children against the villainous captain hook.
Dante Basco, the actor that played the infamous Rufio in the movie Hook is getting this Kickstarter going strong working to raise money to bring a new age twist to the story. 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.
The story has been reverse engineered from what was set-up in Hook. We answer all the questions you’ve ever wondered — How and why is Rufio the leader of the Lost Boys? Where does “bangarang” come from? And of course, how he gets the Mohawk.
Like any Kickstarter project, there are various backing levels ranging anywhere from an open ended donation with no reward below $10 all the way up to $10,000 for those high rollers that will include rewards of the utmost VIP Experience as well as meet and greets with the cast. private viewing during the premiere and of course meeting the man himself Rufio (Dante Basco).
