Bette Midler has one word for Disney’s Planned Remake Of ‘Hocus Pocus’

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.

Hocus Pocus is one of Disney’s cult favorites with children of the ’90s especially holding the movie close to their heart. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play the witch trio known as the Sanderson Sisters who are trying to achieve immortality in Salem, Oregon, but they need a certain spellbook in order to complete the incantation, and three kids and a talking cat have run off with it.

Bette Midler is the best. She is one of the greatest singers, performers, and actors of our generation. I will fight anyone about this. She is iconic, her songs are magnificent, and her career is untouchable. She’s had hits like ‘The Rose’, ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’, ‘Delta Dawn’, and so so many more.

If you appreciate music then you surely appreciate Bette Midler. But have you used them as Instagram captions? Your followers, if they are as wise as you, will immediately notice a Bette Midler lyric. And for those who don’t, you will teach them the ways of the Divine Miss. M. Read More

How To Avoid The Crowds At “Hello Dolly!” With Bette Midler

How to avoid the crowds at these NYC hotspots

The hot mess: Insane crowds at “Hello, Dolly!” on Broadway are a sure Bette. That’s because its Tony Award-winning star, Bette Midler, is returning to the musical for just six weeks starting July 17. During her first stint, tickets went for as much as $800 and performances were always sold out — leading to hordes of people waiting for cancellation seats all day. “The Midler lines at the Shubert are always long and lively,” PR man Rick Miramontez tells The Post. Even wilder are the fans waiting to bask in the glow of the Divine Miss M post-show. “Bette at the stage door is one of the great Broadway events,” Miramontez says. Read More

“You’re going to pay for this, Mr. DiCesare! You think you pulled something over on me! We’ll see about that, young man!” That was the threat I received 42 years ago today from Miss Steele, the rigid, no-nonsense manager of Pittsburgh’s Syria Mosque performing venue. She was reacting to the behavior of Bette Midler and her devoted fans during a concert I promoted on March 12, 1973. Read More
