It turns out that all that talk about a Hocus Pocus sequel wasn’t a bunch of — well, you know. Disney+ is developing a Hocus Pocus 2 movie with Workaholics writer and co-producer Jen D’Angelo set to pen the script. The original cast hasn’t been confirmed to return, but D’Angelo has reportedly been tasked with bringing back the bewitching trio played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.
Collider broke the news that Disney has tapped Jen D’Angelo, who served as a writer and co-producer on Workaholics, to write the script for the long-awaited Hocus Pocus 2. The sequel to the 1993 Halloween cable rerun classic is set to debut on Disney+.
There’s no word on whether the Sanderson sisters, played by Midler, Parker, and Najimy, will return, but Disney is “hopeful” that the original stars “will be involved in some capacity.” Whether this means that they will take the stage once again as the sinister witches who kidnap children to attain immortality, or whether they will pass on the torch to a new generation, is uncertain.
