Hocus Pocus didn’t exactly break the box office when it debuted in 1993, but has since became a Halloween cult classic. Fans weren’t the only ones begging for a sequel—the film’s main stars were interested in making one, too. After head witch Bette Midler jokingly tweeted about the sequel not happening due to the studio’s lack of virgins, Kathy Najimy responded by writing, “see u @craftservice.” Sounds like a Law-of-Attraction-type Twitter spell to me.
Sarah Jessica Parker, the third witch, recently shared her thoughts on the possibility of a second film. “I think it’s just on the World Wide Web,” Parker said to Vulture. “We’ve all been exchanging funny, not-reality-based messages to one another. [That’s] as much as I know.” The World Wide Web. Sarah, how dare you call the internet by its government name. Reminds me of the episode of Sex and the City when Carrie’s computer goes to shit.
Virgins or not, there’s still some hope for the return of the Sanderson sisters. Hocus Pocus creator David Kirschner told Yahoo he tried for a sequel a couple of years ago, but Disney passed on it. He recently pitched another—in the form of a Disney Channel original movie—and is still waiting to hear back.
