Hocus Pocus 2 has been on the minds of fans as well as the cast and producer, David Kirschner. The sequel to the popular 1993 film was pitched to the studios and turned down several years ago. Kirschner recently shared he has once again pitched it as a TV movie for Disney. The film which starred Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Midler as the Sanderson Sisters is a favorite among fans of all ages.
All three actresses have publicly commented they would return for a sequel with Midler joking about it on twitter writing “@kathynaijmy @SJP Breaking news!! SEQUEL DELAYED!! @Disney having trouble finding a virgin! #HocusPocus.” as well as as second post “What’s that you say? ‘Fast and the Furious’ has six sequels and ‘Hocus Pocus‘ has zero?”
A few years ago during a Huffington Post interview, Bette Midler said the movie was one of her favorites. Midler shared, “We had a great time making it. It was Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and I and we laughed the whole time.”
Earlier this week, Sarah Jessica Parker commented that for now it’s all just internet talk.
