Disney’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ Gets Giant Sanderson Sisters Plushies For Halloween
By SEAN FALLON – September 21, 2018

Winifred Sanderson from Disney‘s cult classic film Hocus Pocus isn’t often described as “cuddly”, but this 18-inch plush doll version of her certainly is. The Winifred plush is a Spirit Halloween exclusive that you can order right here along with her sisters Sarah and Mary for $24.99 each.

Winifred wouldn’t admit it, but these plush shouldn’t be purchased individually. The Sanderson Sisters need to stick together. The same is true for Spirit Halloween’s exclusive Hocus Pocus Funko Pop collection… Read More

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Hocus Pocus, one of the campiest cult classics ever to be cooked up in a cinematic cauldron, delighted audiences 25 years ago. And as the new anniversary Blu-ray proves, the movie has never lost its magical touch. The story centers on the witchy Sanderson Sisters played uniquely and expertly well by Bette MidlerSarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, who haunt Salem, Massachusetts upon awakening from their 300-year slumber. The only ones who can stop them are, ironically, the ones who woke them up in the first place: teenagers Max (Omri Katz) and Allison (Vinessa Shaw) and Max’s younger sister, Dani (Thora Birch), assisted by a cursed, immortal, talking cat, and a resurrected zombie (Doug Jones). There’s a reason that Freeform plays this flick a bunch of times during their annual 31 Nights of Halloween fest, but now you can pick up a tricked-out copy of your own. Read More

Bette Midler has one word for Disney’s Planned Remake Of ‘Hocus Pocus’
DANIEL S. LEVINE 08/09/2018 06:36 PM

Bette Midler, Disney, Hocus Pocus

Bette Midler is one of the most accomplished performers today, but one movie on her resume holds a special place in the hearts of millions: Disney’s Hocus Pocus. The film keeps finding new fans, 25 years after its release, and Midler is “grateful” for the film’s success.

“We had no expectations because we didn’t get very good notices and we didn’t do the business that anyone expected us to do,” Midler said in a recent interview with Good Morning America. “And the fact that it became this cult favorite and that it plays regularly every Halloween, I mean, I have very young fans because of Winnie, because of Hocus Pocus, so I’m grateful for it.” Read More

There’s been plenty of celebration regarding the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but another beloved movie from 1993 is also worthy of honor, especially with Halloween around the corner.
