In October last year, the sequel for Disney + got announced while it took another few months before "Hairspray" director Adam Shankman confirmed that he will direct "Hocus Pocus 2."

“But I think now we’ve gotten to the point where 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," Sarah added during her chat with Andy.

BETTE WOULD LOVE IT TOO

The original film followed three witch sisters as they accidentally got resurrected on Halloween, and Bette Midler also spoke of her willingness to reprise her role during her annual Hulaween event held in New York City, as she reportedly said:

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

IT ALMOST HAD ANOTHER NAME

Walt Disney Pictures initially bought the script to the film named "Disney's Halloween House" in 1984, and even though the film kept its Halloween theme, it got released months away from the spooky holiday in July 1993. Despite its poor box office performance, "Hocus Pocus" became a classic.

Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker are also well-known for starring together on the hugely popular television series "Sex and the City," and they became and remained close friends since then.
