Our favourite Halloween classic Hocus Pocus is officially moving forward at Disney Plus and Jen D’Angelo, the writer of Workaholics, has been roped in to pen the script.
Attention Witches! Our dreams are finally coming true and it looks like our Halloween just got better. Yes, fan-favorite Halloween witchy classic Hocus Pocus is officially getting a sequel and we are beyond excited!
Yes, Hocus Pocus 2 is officially moving forward at Disney Plus and they have even hired a writer to pen the script. According to Collider, Jen D’Angelo, who served as a writer and co-producer on Workaholics, has been roped in for the sequel.
According to the report, Jen has been asked to find a way to bring back the original cast members -- Bette Midler as Winifred, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah, and Kathy Najimy as Mary.
Although none of them are officially on board, the studio is really looking forward to having them somehow involved with the much-anticipated project.
Although the Hocus Pocus sequel is still in early development, there is no confirmation whether we will get the original cast back or there will be a new generation of witches.
Recently, there were rumours about a sequel when the original star cast of Hocus Pocus came together for a reunion and had us all guessing.
The photo shows Vinessa Shaw (Allison) posing next to a crystal ball along with other original cast members Larry Bagby (Ice), Tobias Jelinek (Jay), Omri Katz (Max Dennison) and Doug Jones (Billy Butcherson). “Oh, will there be a #2?” she asks in the caption, before adding, “‘Tis time!”
The cast members had come together for the taping of Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween Fan Fest” special on September 12 at the Hollywood Forever Ceremony.
Hocus Pocus released almost 26 years ago starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy and yet it is still fresh in our minds. We can never forget the three wonderful Sanderson Sisters who cast spells on the children of Salem, scaring the living daylights out of them and laughing it off later.
The 1993 horror-comedy movie has become a Halloween classic over the years and also has its own cult following. Initially, Hocus Pocus wasn't a commercial success but it is now one of the most-watched movies on Halloween.
