Bette Midler Confirms Original Cast for ‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel

Earlier this year, rumors floated around that the cult classic “Hocus Pocus” will get a highly anticipated sequel on Disney+. The original Winifred Sanderson, Bette Midler, has recently confirmed that she, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will also return to their spellbinding roles.
It won’t be the first time that the Sanderson Sisters will reunite. Midler announced last week on Instagram that the bewitching trio will come together to host a virtual charity event, “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover,” on Friday, Oct. 30.
The superstar recently appeared on Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” and dropped a major hint when asked about whether or not she would be returning for a new installment. “They want to make a movie; they’ve asked us if we were interested, and, of course, all of us said yes,” Midler said.
There is no date set for “Hocus Pocus 2” to cast its spell on Disney+ at the moment.
