Bette Midler Shares First Look At 'Hocus Pocus' Reunion With Original Cast

Hocus Pocus fans, it's the moment we've all been waiting for - Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy back on our screens as the iconic Sanderson sisters.

The trio are teaming up for a virtual 'Hulaween' fundraiser, in aid of the New York Restoration Project, which will air on the eve of Halloween (Friday 30th October).

And now, Bette (who played Winifred) has posted a behind the scenes snap of the trio back in costume. Eeeek!


"Our 3 fav witches - @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy & ME - are returning for 1 night only on 10/30 at 8p ET!" She wrote.

"'In Search of the Sanderson Sisters' is the best thing to happen to #Halloween since Hocus Pocus + Reeses Pieces. Get your tix now (link in bio) and support @NYRP #nyrphulaween."

Arghh, we are so excited.


The event has been described as the "hottest pandemic-safe Halloween event of the year" and tickets cost $10 (£7.70). You can snap them up here.

Alongside the Sanderson sisters, big names including Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert, John Stamos, Meryl Streep, and Sarah Silverman are also tipped to make an appearance - but this hasn't yet been confirmed.

We've got everything crossed that this isn't the only Hocus Pocus reunion we can expect in the near future. As mega fans will know, rumours of a sequel to the 1993 film have been circulating for some time.


And earlier this month, Bette said she "can't wait to fly again" as she confirmed she wants to take part in a potential sequel.

Disney is yet to release any info on who will be starring in the sequel, but Bette told Entertainment Tonight: "We're just talking logistics" - which definitely sounds promising to us!


Meanwhile, SJP has previously revealed that all three would be up for taking part, telling SiriusXM's Radio Andy show: "I think that it is something Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and I are all very hospitable to the idea.


"I think for a long time, people were talking about it as if people were moving forward with it in a real way but we were unaware of it."

"We've agreed publicly to the right people, yes, that would be a very, very fun idea, so we'll see what the future holds."

Come on Disney, give the people what they want!
