More than two decades since the original's release, a sequel to Hocus Pocus is finally in the works. The followup film is reportedly in the works at Disney+, though few other details about next Hocus Pocus installment have been revealed. While it wasn't clear whether the original cast would sign on for the sequel, Sarah Jessica Parker may have let some major news slip on Instagram.
Parker, who played Sarah Sanderson in the 1993 film, shared a photo from the beloved 'I Put A Spell On You' scene from Hocus Pocus in honor of Halloween. When a fan asked if she'd be returning for the sequel, she responded "we have all said yes. Now we wait." Though Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy, who played Winifred and Mary Sanderson respectively, haven't addressed their co-stars comments yet, it would seem they're both planning on reprising their roles for the highly anticipated sequel.
There's been talk about another Hocus Pocus movie for quite some time. Back in 2017, the first film's director, Kenny Ortega, told Entertainment Tonight how much fun it would be to get the Sanderson Sisters back together again. "I would like to see a sequel, and I think that the fans would like to see a sequel," Ortega said. "I think it would be much more fun to bring the ladies back. They’re all still vital and in their prime and capable of doing so much that it would be great to see Bette and Kathy and Sarah come back together to do another movie and I think they would like to."
It would only take twenty-six years, a new streaming platform and virgin lighting the black flame candle during a full moon on All Hallow's Eve to make this sequel happen. Considering the Sanderson Sisters had to wait 330 years to come back to life in the original film, we can hold out a little while longer for the sequel.
