‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Is Going to Happen and Bette Midler Confirmed It Herself


There is no feeling quite like finding out one of your favorite shows or movies of all time is coming out with a sequel, right?

I mean, to be fair, there is always someone somewhere who has a problem with it because the belief about sequels is often that the second will never be as good as the first… unless it’s like Harry Potter or something. Let’s be honest, though, it will be extremely difficult to find anyone who isn’t absolutely completely and utterly stoked about the return of the classic ‘Hocus Pocus’ as a sequel.

I’m sure the timing isn’t coincidental, either. To have one of the most iconic Halloween movies of all time announce a sequel less than a week before Halloween is more than perfect timing, and all of my spooky girls are here for it I’m sure. With the world the way it is right now, there’s not much better than having things to look forward to, and this is definitely something to look forward to.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are apparently all set to star in the sequel. If you haven’t seen the first one, these ladies were the original cast in the first movie, and it sounds like they’re all super excited to be bringing it back.

We were kind of already in the loop that Disney + was going to get their hands on this and make a sequel, but you never know these days which characters from the original will actually make an appearance, even if it’s just a cameo… and in this case it’s all 3 of the leading ladies and we couldn’t ask for anything more, could we?

Hopefully this makes your Halloween week even more marvelous than it already was!
