BREAKING NEWS: Bette Midler Confirms A Hocus Pocus 2 is Happening
Oh my god...Oh my GOD.....OH MY GAWWWWDDD!!!!
Well isn't this the spookiest news that we have all been waiting to hear for the past 27 years.
News just broke from Bette Midler herself that a 'Hocus Pocus' sequel is indeed CONFIRMED!!!
If you are a Hocus Pocus fan....you will already know that a 'Hocus Pocus 2' has been a topic of discussion every spooky season for the last few years. Disney finally said YES!
Well I....am NOT CALM!
Midler gave away the news in a recent interview with Fox 5 New York's 'Good Day New York' when discussing the upcoming virtual Hocus Pocus reunion set to take place on Friday, October 30th ONLY!
“They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes,” said Midler. “I’m game, I’m totally game.”
Also during the interview, Bette Midler revealed that all three OG Sanderson sisters had already reunited to film the special live, one-night-only virtual event, "In Search Of The Sanderson Sisters" that is ALSO a fundraiser for the New York Restoration Project.

Streamable worldwide. $10 tix benefitting @nyrp. Link in bio. #nyrphulaween
I would bet that seeing all three witches reunite like no time had passed helped give Disney+ that final nudge to make this project happen.
“And to put all that gear on…it was so bizarre because we fell into exactly the same relationship we had and the same style of behaving on screen that we had 27 years ago. As if we had been off for a weekend!” explained Midler.
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica parker and Kathy Najimy will all return to play their original Sanderson Sister roles but we do not know how big of a role the sisters will play, what year the movie will take place or what the new plot will be. (Maybe hide your children just to be safe)
This is some of the most exciting news EVERRRRRRR!!!
So just "Dance...DANCE UNTIL YOU DIE" until we get more information on this sequel.
BUT HOLY FREAKIN COW!
P.S. Virgins -- don't light any candles until further notice. Thank you.
