Directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical), the original film was led by multi-award winning actress Bette Midler (The Rose) and four-time Golden Globe winner Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) along with Kathy Najimy (Sister’s Act), portraying The film followed the story of a teenage boy, who accidentally brings a trio of villainous Salem witches back to life on Halloween night. Although Hocus Pocus wasn’t a critical and commercial success by the time of its release, it still stood the test of time through countless of annual airings  and has now become a cult classic film.

According to the outlet’s sources, the streaming service also wants D’Angelo to create a way on how Midler, Parker and Najimy could be able to reprise their roles as Winifred, Sarah and Mary in the planned sequel. Even though none of the original stars are currently attached to star in the sequel, Disney is very hopeful to get them involved with Hocus Pocus 2. Further details on the film’s plot and new characters are still being kept under wraps.
