That ‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel You Always Wanted Could Actually Happen

Jump to Comments


That’s right! Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are game to do a Hocus Pocus sequel.

During a recent Reddit AMA, Midler revealed that a sequel to the 1993 Disney flick turned Halloween cult classic could happen — but it all depends on how badly fans want it.

“You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney Company,” said Midler, who is in the midst of promoting her newest solo album, It’s the Girls. “The ball’s in their court.”

Sarah Jessica Parker, who played dopey Sarah Sanderson in the original, might have her hands a little full with the rumored Sex and the City 3 reunion, but if the opportunity presented itself, Midler assured fans she would be in.

“Inundate the Disney Company, because I have canvassed the girls and they are willing to do it,” continued Midler referring to SJP and Najimy, her witchy, onscreen Sanderson sisters. “But we have no say in it, so if you want a HOCUS POCUS 2, ask the Walt Disney Company”.

Midler has previously raved about how much she enjoyed filming the movie back in the day.

“We laughed the whole time,” Midler explained on an episode on Katie Couric’s talk show, Katie, back in 2013, “And we flew! We flew! And we got to wear like crazy noses and fake teeth and all those sorts of things.”

If you love watching the film as much as Midler and friends loved making it, let Disney know to keep the ghoulish fun going.
