Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals All The OG Witches Have Agreed To Star In The 'Hocus Pocus' Sequel

Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals All The OG Witches Have Agreed To Star In The 'Hocus Pocus' Sequel

Last week, we announced Hocus Pocus was definitely getting a sequel, but we weren't sure whether the three original witches would return or not.

Well we can now reveal Sarah Jessica Parker has added fuel to the fire, responding on Instagram to one of her followers that her, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy have all agreed to return! Shut the front door.

To be fair, the sequel, set to be shown on Disney+ in 2020, would've been nothing without the three original Sanderson sisters, Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (SJP) and Mary (Kathy Najimy).

The person on Instagram said: "Any chance of a sequel?" next to praying and fingers crossed finger emojis.

And SJP replies: "We have all said yes. Now we wait. X".

Now if that's not concrete evidence, we don't know what is.

To help matters, Jen D'Angelo, who is working on the script for the sequel has been reportedly been tasked with getting the ladies to return.

And it turns out that's easier than it sounds. As Bette Midler has also confirmed she'd be up for it.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "Oh my goodness me. Oh I hope they get to me before I'm a corpse.

"We wanna fly again. I hope Disney+ is a big success and I hope we get to do it, because [Winifred] is of course one of my favourite characters."

She said nothing was set in stone and she's still waiting to find out, but it sounds promising.

She added in her exclusive with Entertainment Tonight that her, SJP and Kathy talk about a reunion often. "We actually talk about it whenever we see each other," she said.

"We laugh, we say, 'Oh, wouldn't it be great if?' Because all of us had pretty much the same experience on it."

The news of her keenness to return comes as a slight shock, given that she suggested back in 2017 she wouldn't be returning.

She said to People about the sequel: "It's going to be cheap! I'm not sure what they're going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don't know who they're going to find to play that."

Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals 'Hocus Pocus' Cast Are All Up For The Sequel

Maybe she hadn't been asked at that point and was feeling put out. Things change. Now, that sounds like it's two out of three, come on Kathy, we're all waiting for you now!

It's been 26 years since the film was first released and yet we still can't get the image of Mary swinging that hoover underneath her - the best makeshift broomstick ever. We need her in it too, or it's just not going to fly with us.

Let's hope Disney and script writer Jen can work their magic to get these ladies confirmed - a sequel to this Halloween classic with the OGs needs to happen.

Believe it or not, this film wasn't a hit at the box office on release in 1993 - but its popularity has certainly made up for it over the years.

The sequel is set to land in 2020, but none of the cast members are confirmed. (Credit: Disney)

And if you don't know what the story is about you need to instantly go home and watch it... Or just read out synopsis.

It begins with the Sanderson sisters, from Salem, who are hung on Halloween for their witchcraft and involvement in children going missing.

But, the head witch, Winnie, has a magical spell book that reveals a prophecy: if a virgin lights the black flame candle in their cottage on Halloween in future years, the witches will be resurrected.

Naturally, they are brought back to life, but are horrified to find themselves alive 300 years later when Halloween has become a playful holiday.

One thing hasn't changed though and that's their disgust for children...

There is no confirmed release date yet unfortunately, but here's hoping it'll be in time for Halloween 2020.
