Yes, We’re Still Celebrating The Damn Anniversary!: KATHY NAJIMY SHARES THE SECRETS OF HOCUS POCUS TO CELEBRATE ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Hocus Pocus

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. Read More

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Hocus Pocus

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 The movie actually has an outdated look on teen sexuality, putting a focus on the virginity of a teenage boy and treating his lack of sexual experience as a negative aspect of his personality.

Hocus Pocus might not have enjoyed any critical or commercial success when it was first released by Disney in 1993, however the comedy horror fantasy movie by Kenny Ortega gained quite a name of the years, and now the film has a passionate following.

Last year, word began circulating online that Disney was going to make a TV movie based on the original Hocus Pocus.
