Bette Midler Teases ‘Hocus Pocus’ Reunion!
Disney

Just in time for Halloween!

Sunday on Instagram, Bette Midler shared a photo from the upcoming “Hocus Pocus” reunion for her annual Hulaween fundraising gala October 30.

In the snap, Midler and her co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, reprise their roles as the Sanderson sisters from the iconic ’90s film.

“Your 3 fav witches - @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy & ME - are returning for 1 night only,” Midler wrote.

The special event, titled “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover,” will benefit Midler’s New York Restoration Project — a nonprofit organization that restores green space throughout New York City’s five boroughs.

In March, Variety announced that Adam Shankman would direct “Hocus Pocus 2” for Disney+.

“Yep….Thanks with all of my heart dear @disney Looks like Il be working on a looooooottttt of magic for awhile… I feel incredibly honored and humbled to be guiding forward these two Disney crown jewel legacies,” Shankman, who is also working on Disney’s “Enchanted” sequel, later wrote on Instagram.

He added, “My only hope is to honor those who came before me and build something new and exciting, as I desperately try to not let down the fans and enchant the new initiates! Fingers crossed! Xo.”

At the time, Variety reported that the original “Hocus Pocus” cast is not attached to the sequel. However, the outlet said Disney is hopeful that they will become involved in some capacity.

In the 1993 horror-fantasy-comedy film, the Sanderson trio is inadvertently resurrected by a teenage boy in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween night.
