Bette Midler Shares ‘Hocus Pocus 2‘ Script is “Pretty Great”. Recently, Bette Midler spoke with People and shared an update regarding the story set to be featured in Hocus Pocus 2. Midler shared with People, “They presented us with an outline, and after we picked ourselves up off the floor, because it’s been 27 years, we looked at it and I think all of us agreed that it was pretty great.”
Though the Sanderson Sisters themselves have shared they are on board for the project, Disney has yet to announce any official casting decisions for the Disney+ original film, but Midler did share that all efforts are being made to get as much of the original cast AND crew together as possible for the sequel.
“We’re trying to see who’s available and who’s still out there and still working and who can come back,” Midler spilled to People. “Because, a lot of the success of what we did on that picture had to do with the team that was surrounded, had to do with the team that they assembled to make that picture, the people who did the flying and the rigging, the people who did the green screens, the people who did the … I don’t think they called it the green screen in those days. The people who did the hair and makeup, which were all exemplary, the costumers, and the special effects people.”
Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker recently reunited for Midler’s annual ‘Hulaween’ party that went virtual this year due to the pandemic, but fans were ecstatic to see the trio donning their iconic costumes from the 1993 cult classic. It was also reported by multiple streaming platforms and television networks that Hocus Pocus remained one of the highest streamed and viewed Halloween movies to date this October.
Currently, the sequel is expected to premiere exclusively on Disney+ but we can’t wait to hear Winnie say “The Sanderson Sisters are BACK!” Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney+!
