The Truth Behind Hocus Pocus 2


‘The witch is back,and now there’s hell to pay’


SISTAHS! In 1993 something very special happened to our screens and that was the production of the classic film Hocus Pocus! Almost 22 years later it’s still one of my all time favourite films which is why I jumped with joy when I heard they were in the process of making a sequel to the movie. Could it be? could Disney be making my dreams come true? I couldn’t deal with not knowing so I went about doing research to find out if this was really going to happen, I mean it has too…

So here’s the full, truthful story, during the year Bette Midler (who plays the lead witch Winnie Sanderson) was asked if she would be interested in making a sequel to the extremely successful film and guess what, SHE’S IN… however, Disney… not so much!!
‘’You have to go send in your cards to the Walt Disney Company. The ball is in their court’
However Midler did go onto say that herself, and the rest of the cast do agree to make the movie… and from what I can make of it, it seems like she really wants this to happen.
‘’Inundate the Disney company, because I have canvassed the girls and they are willing to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ then ask the Walt Disney Company.’
So from here it seemed like my dreams had been crushed, the Sanderson sisters were in but Disney were not, but then my search deepened when I discovered Tina Fey was on board.. I know, I know this just gets better and better.
Tina picked up on Bette’s comments and decided she would produce a remake of the film. This was it, it was happening, I was about to scream with delight when I realised it was a rumour and Fey wasn't on board.
Yep, you heard me she’s not on board with the sequel so as it stands there’s no plan for a ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ - I know, sorry to break your heart but, get your pens out we’re writing to Disney!!
