“I’m excited for it,” she said. They’ve been talking about this reboot for five years. I’m excited to see what it all looks like. I know a little bit about a couple of ideas for stories, but I don’t know where it’s all going to fall at the end of the day. [I would return] If they would have me, depending on [the story]. I’m sure Dani’s not going to be selling crack in an alley anywhere, so I’m pretty open-minded.”

Disney+ is currently developing the long-awaited sequel to the 1993 classic horror-comedy Hocus Pocus with the original trio of witches set to return.

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 Act). 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 annual airings and has now become a cult classic film.

Hocus Pocus 2. will be written by Jen D’Angelo (Workaholics), who was also tasked by Disney 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  Further details on the film’s plot and new characters are still being kept under wraps.
