25 Things You Didn’t Know About “Hocus Pocus” September 21, 2018
Those who know me well, know that the film “Hocus Pocus” is one of my favorite Disney movies, and it’s become a yearly tradition to watch it a few times (at least) each and every Halloween season. This fantastic film is celebrating 25 years this year as well! It’s hard to believe it’s been out that long! I came across this article about Hocus Pocus, on hollywood.com, regarding fun facts that most fans didn’t know about the movie. I know I didn’t know, so the article was a fun read. That being said, I thought I’d share the info with our readers as I know we have a lot of fans of the Sanderson Sisters! So here we go, 25 things you didn’t know about Hocus Pocus~

We Reveal 7 Secrets from Cult Favorite Hocus Pocus for its 25th Anniversary
SEPTEMBER 10, 2018
2 MINUTE READ
Ready for a serious flashback? Hocus Pocus is 25 years old.
That means it’s been a quarter century since the coven of evil witches played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy were accidentally set free to wreak havoc on Salem, Mass. And it’s been 25 years since a cult favorite was born.
For many of us, October means grabbing a pumpkin spice latte, loading up on candy corn, hitting the DVR and lining up every single showing of Hocus Pocus so we can just keep watching over and over and over again. It’s become Halloween tradition in many a household thanks to Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween. But just maybe there’s a better way?

“I didn’t have the kind of body that someone usually expects of someone going into show business,” she says. “So I would put on plays in my backyard and make all my friends in fifth grade do Bette Midler revues.”
Those childhood plays of Najimy’s have evolved a bit, and now she’s written and starring in a show, “Lift Up Your Skirt,” that will be at the Art House for one night only, on Sunday.

Hocus Pocus TV Tropes And Trivia
A 1993 Halloween-themed Disney film for “kids”. This was the second film directed by Kenny Ortega, previously known for Newsies (1993). Now considered a cult favorite, the film’s rather campy, but pretty entertaining. It does, after all, contain a memorable rendition of “I Put A Spell On You” by Bette Midler. The song “Come Little Children” from this film went on to become a Halloween classic.
The One ‘Hocus Pocus’ Detail You Missed That Is Totally Cringe-Worthy Now
By CASEY CIPRIANI
Many of us have heard the term “Christmas in July,” but how about Halloween in July? That’s exactly what Disney had in mind when it released everyone’s favorite nostalgic witch romp Hocus Pocus on July 16, 1993. Now that the movie is celebrating its 25th anniversary, you’d be forgiven if you don’t want to wait around until Halloween to pop it back into your VCR (we all still have those, right?). But revisiting Hocus Pocus as an adult brings on an ick-factor that many fans might’ve forgotten about all these years. The movie actually has an outdated look on teen sexuality, putting a focus on the virginity of a teenage boy and treating his lack of sexual experience as a negative aspect of his personality.
