Bette Midler's in love with 'Hocus Pocus' all over again

Bette Midler gave herself an early Halloween treat this year: She rewatched “Hocus Pocus,” the kid-oriented dark comedy and cult classic that just turned 25 and starred the Divine Miss M as the leader of a trio of witches.

“The first time I watched it I was only watching myself. But this time I saw everybody,” she told People on Monday night at her annual Hulaween party in New York City, where the theme was “Hulaween in the Cosmos.” 

“And I tell ya, those girls in the back — they were going full blast! They were giving me a run for my money. The kids were great, everybody was great! Read More

Bette Midler Announces She’s Joining the Hocus Pocus Reunion Special

Something wicked this way comes — and we couldn’t be more excited!

Almost a month after Freeform first announced its Hocus Pocus 25th anniversary special, original star Bette Midler finally confirmed that she’d be joining in on the fun.

“Wait, wait a minute,” Midler, 72, said in a video posted on Freeform’s YouTube page, while assuming the voice of her Hocus Pocus character Winifred Sanderson.

“What’s a Sanderson sister celebration without Winifred?” she asked with a smile.

The video confirmed that she would be joining fellow stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and Thora Birch in the special, which will air Oct. 20 as part of Freeform’s 31 of Nights of Halloween lineup. Read More

1. Why does the movie start with Superman flying over a lake?

Hocus Pocus Stills

2. Man, I hope this guy finds Emily.

3. This movie isn’t scary, right? I mean, it’s Disney so….then again, Disney movies can be scary. The Hunchback of Notre Dame was TERRIFYING. Ugh, this better not be scary.

4. Who just lets their kids sprint through the woods?

5. And what kind of dumb kid would follow a stranger into a house in said woods?

6. TBH, this house looks like it’d be great to throw a frat party in.

7. Haha, me every day:

8. What’s with people in the 1600s and ill-fitting white garments? Read More

Hocus Pocus – Bette Midler – BOOOOOOOK!!!!!! – 1993 

In July 2014, it was announced that Disney was developing a supernatural-themed film about witches and that Tina Fey was on board as a producer and star. However, Deadline debunked rumors that the film was a sequel to Hocus Pocus.[32] In November 2014, Bette Midler said in an interview that she was ready and willing to return for a sequel. She also said her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy were interested in reprising the roles of the Sanderson sisters as well but stressed that Disney had yet to greenlight any sequel.[33] In November 2015, Midler stated in a Facebook Q&A that “after all these years and all the fan demand, I do believe I can stand and firmly say an unequivocal no” in response to a question about a sequel.[34] Read More
