Bette Midler confirms original cast of ‘Hocus Pocus’ to reunite for forthcoming sequel

Midler will star alongside Sarah Jessica-Parker and Kathy Najimy

Bette Midler has confirmed that the original Hocus Pocus cast members will reunite in the forthcoming Disney sequel.

This news follows last year’s confirmation that a follow-up to the 1993 favourite was in the works for Disney+. Soon after, Sarah Jessica-Parker had stated that all three of the main witches, played by Parker, Midler, and Kathy Najimy, had agreed to star in the proposed sequel.

In 2017, it had been reported that Disney was making a Hocus Pocus television movie, but without the original cast.

Now, Midler has revealed that she’d be reprising her role alongside Parker and Najimy. “They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes,” Midler explains to Fox 5 New York. “I’m game, I’m totally game.”
