Bette Midler confirms Hocus Pocus sequel with original cast – New York Post

It’s time to “run amok” with the original Sanderson Sisters . . . again.

After rumors floated earlier this year that the cult classic “Hocus Pocus” will get a highly anticipated sequel on Disney+, Bette Midler — the original Winifred Sanderson — has confirmed that she, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will also return to their spellbinding roles.

Midler, 74, recently appeared on Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” and dropped a major hint when asked about whether or not she would be returning for a new installment.

“They want to make a movie; they’ve asked us if we were interested, and, of course, all of us said yes,” Midler said.

“I’m game. I’m totally game.”

It won’t be the first time that the Sanderson Sisters will reunite. Midler announced last week on Instagram that the bewitching trio will come together to host a virtual charity event, “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover,” on Friday, Oct. 30.

“It was so bizarre to have been these characters 27 years ago,” Midler said regarding reuniting with Parker and Naijmy.

“And to put all that gear on . . . It was so bizarre, because we fell into exactly the same relationship we had and the same style of behaving on-screen that we had 27 years ago. As if we had been off for a weekend!”

As of now, there is no date set for “Hocus Pocus 2” to cast its spell on Disney+.
