Something “ratchet” this way comes.
Todrick Hall, the former “American Idol” contestant and famed BeyoncÃ© medley master, has taken aim at the beloved Halloween classic “Hocus Pocus” on his new MTV show “Todrick.” After bringing Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” to the hood and back and showing Leonardo DiCaprio the door in his “Titanic” parody “Titaniqua,” it was only a matter of time before the Sanderson sisters got the Todrick treatment.
In “Hocus Broke-us” the trio of witches that haunted your childhood nightmares (originally played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) are still on the hunt for eternal youth, but now go by different names: SeyoncÃ©, Kelly and Michelle. After touring the underworld for 22 years, the Sanderson sisters must now adapt to a world of hoverboards, trap music and Fetty Wap. Even Midler’s “I Put A Spell On You” gets a 2015 update.
The last time we heard about “Hocus Pocus 2”, the Divine Miss M herself expressed an interest in breaking out her buck teeth and broom during an Reddit AMA last year. “You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney company,” she said. “The ball’s in their court.”
Maybe the power of Todrick can get Disney to the negotiating table.
