Hocus Pocus 2 a possibility? The Sanderson Sisters Say Yes!


Hocus Pocus is by far my favorite Halloween Movie, we watch it every year, multiple times actually. So, my hopes went up a little when I read that the Sanderson Sisters themselves would be happy to do a long awaited sequel! Here’s how things went according to Buzzfeed~

During a recent Reddit AMA to promote her new album, Bette Midler was repeatedly asked about Hocus Pocus — Walt Disney’s beloved 1993 movie about a trio of evil sister witches who are brought back from the dead and set out to drink the youth from Salem’s children and perform a seriously catchy pop number.

In fact, the top comment on the thread involves a fan asking for a sequel. “chuckles,” Midler responded. “You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney company. The ball’s in their court.”

Well, after the AMA concluded, Midler leaned into that suggestion by updating her bio at the top of the page with this: “Inundate the Disney company, because I have canvassed the girls and they are wiling to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a HOCUS POCUS 2, ask the Walt Disney company. You have been SO adorable. This has been most enlightening. SISTAHS!”

Disney themselves had no comment when asked, but the other two stars of the movie did, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker….. and this also gave me hope! Here’s what they said~

Kathy Najimy ~ “I have read Bette’s quote and I agree. The outpouring of love from Hocus-ites has been astounding. The creativity of their Sanderson sisters costumes, posters, artwork, t-shirts, statues, TV stills, photos, compliments and line quotes have blown up social media and I want them to know … We see and appreciate it all. When a film is being shot, you never quite know the impact.. If it’ll be a hit or a miss, and..with this one … we hear y’all loud and clear! A sequel is totally in The Disney company’s hands — And it will be exciting to see what transpires!”

Meanwhile, in response to a Tweet from BuzzFeed News’ Jarett Wieselman asking about her interest in returning, Sarah Jessica Parker wrote, “Yep. I’m in.”

Woo Hoo! I guess we shall see what happens….. but I know for me, if they did a sequel to Hocus Pocus, I’d SO be there to see it! How about you?
