Rumor has it that Disney has been quietly developing a sequel to its ’90s Halloween classic Hocus Pocus. The original film starred Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker as a trio of sister witches resurrected on Halloween night in Salem, Massachusetts, who begin wrecking havoc on the town. It’s up to teenagers Max (Omri Katz) and Allison (Vinessa Shaw), and a young Thora Birch who plays Max’s younger sister Dani, to thwart them.
The film is a staple of a certain (mine) generation’s collective memory. It’s not hard to remember it, either, since the Disney channel has had it in reruns almost every Halloween season for the last decade. As for the potential sequel, there’s not much yet to go on, but hit the jump for a few tidbits.
