Posted on May 23, 2018 by Mike Mack
In 1993, Disney made us fall in love with a story about three resurrected witches and the kids that did everything they could to stop them. 25 years later, Midsummer Scream will be celebrating “Hocus Pocus.”
Fans of Disney’s classic film will want to attend this year’s convention for “We Put a Spell on You: Celebrating 25 Years of Hocus Pocus,” a special conversation about the making of the film with producer David Kirschner, screenwriter Mick Garris and special guests.
“Hocus Pocus” starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson sisters, who have since become Halloween icons. The trio of characters appear in the “Hocus Pocus” Villain Spelltacular at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.
