Parker said on Halloween that she and her Hocus Pocus co-stars have all agreed to a sequel
Could Hocus Pocus be getting a sequel? Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed that she and her costars Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy are all interested.
On Halloween, Parker shared on Instagram a picture of her and her Hocus Pocus co-stars in costume as the iconic Sanderson sisters from the film:
In the comments, one fan asked Parker if a sequel could be in the works.
Parker replied: “We have all said yes. Now we wait.”
Parker’s reply naturally sparked excitement amongst fans, and her comment has been liked more than three thousand times.
Collider has further confirmed that a sequel is, indeed, in the works for Disney Plus, Disney’s hotly-anticipated streaming service that launches on November 12.
Collider reports: “Sources say that D’Angelo has been tasked with finding a way to bring back the original cast of Bette Midler as Winifred, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah, and Kathy Najimy as Mary. None of them are attached at the moment, but the studio is hopeful that they’ll be involved with the sequel in some capacity. Since the project is still in early development at Disney’s forthcoming streaming service, it remains unclear whether they’ll be the main characters, or whether we’ll see them pass the proverbial torch to a new generation of witches.”
