The Disney movie follows the lives of three witches, who were hung in Salem in 1693 for killing a girl in order to absorb their youth from her and return in the future for revenge.

The witches are played by Parker as Sarah Sanderson, Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson and Kathy Najimy, who plays Mary Sanderson.

According to Daily Mail, when it first came out the movie wasn't a box office hit. It earned $39 million on a $28 million budget. 

However, since its release in 1993, "Hocus Pocus" has become a cult classic. Commenting on Parker's sequel announcement, one fan says:

"@sarahjessicaparker this would be AMAZING! My favourite Disney movie ever! I watch with my little girl (well, she's 8 now) all the time. "Hang him on a hook and let me play with him..."
