‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel Is In Development for Disney+


Disney+ has launched development on a sequel to the original Hocus Pocus movie.

I figured this was coming. They must have scrapped the other version they were going to do as a TV movie and are going in another direction for Disney+.  If you remember they announced a couple of years ago that there was going to be a new made for TV movie coming and it didn’t look like they were going to use the original witches. The fans did not like it!

This new sequel has Workaholics writer and co-producer Jen D’Angelo working on the script and it sounds like the Sanderson sisters could return.

According to Collider:

Sources say that D’Angelo has been tasked with finding a way to bring back the original cast of Bette Midler as Winifred, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah, and Kathy Najimy as Mary. None of them are attached at the moment, but the studio is hopeful that they’ll be involved with the sequel in some capacity. Since the project is still in early development at Disney’s forthcoming streaming service, it remains unclear whether they’ll be the main characters, or whether we’ll see them pass the proverbial torch to a new generation of witches.

The original 1993 movie didn’t that great in theaters, but it’s become a cult classic and is going to run all day Halloween on Freeform! The Sanderson sisters have become a bit of the Halloween party mascots at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as of late too.

I’m kind of excited but I admit I’m worried. I really hope they don’t do a reboot. Disney the reboots are getting old. It sounds like the plan is to just make a sequel and that could be good as long as they don’t take that into Hocus Pocus the Next Generation streaming show on Disney+
