Oh how Ms. Midler loves to tease the scores ofÂ Hocus PocusÂ fansâ€¦ Today she announced via her Facebook that should be attendingÂ a Halloween party benefitting the New York Restoration Project dressed as Winnie Sanderson â€” her beloved character from the 90â€™s Disney film. The NYRP â€œHulaweenâ€ is being held atÂ Waldorf-Astoria on October 28th and tickets are still available hereÂ (warning: theyâ€™re pricey).
Ever since itâ€™s dud of a release in 1993,Â Hocus Pocus has gained a loyal following over the years. In fact, Midler herself has often been the one leading the charge to have a sequel made, so itâ€™s really no surprise that sheâ€™d see donning that classic costume again as a bit of fun that perhaps could conjure up some extra sales for her cause.
(While weâ€™re on the subject, Iâ€™d be remiss if I didnâ€™t point that my friend Aaron Wallace has just released a new book all aboutÂ Hocus Pocus and itâ€™s fandomÂ titledÂ Hocus Pocus in Focuswhich you can pick up on Amazon or his website.)
So are you excited that Better is still excited forÂ Hocus Pocus? And how much wouldÂ you pay to see her in character for yourself?
