“Hocus Pocus” was not a hit when it was released 30 years ago. It was reviewed negatively and didn’t do well at the box office.
But nature does abhor a vacuum, and content is needed for all these streaming services. So there wil be a sequel finally after three decades to the cult hit. Disney Plus will be the venue.
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will reprise their roles. Anne Fletcher will direct. Someone– get Diane Warren, please — will write a song for Bette Midler to play over the credits for an Oscar nomination.
Sounds like fun and why not?
