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

Bette Midler Hocus Pocus

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 – Video

Hocus Pocus - Bette Midler

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

    7 Secrets from Cult Favorite Hocus Pocus for its 25th Anniversary

    Ready for a serious flashback? Hocus Pocus is 25 years old.
