With the movie industry trying its best to roar to life again, many projects and actors have found different ways to spend the time. One such way is through reunions, and fans of the 90s comedy movie "Hocus Pocus" can expect one soon.


Bette Midler shared a picture on Instagram showing a scene from the upcoming "Hocus Pocus" reunion. The image showed Midler with fellow actresses Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker in front of a digital screen as they acted a scene from the reunion.

The actresses, dressed as witches, were all smiles as they worked on the project. The "Hocus Pocus" reunion, tagged, "In Search of the Sanderson Sisters," is coming about 27 years after the original movie aired.

While many considered the original movie to be a flop, it has since become a cult classic and has gained a massive following amongst fans. Teasing the reunion in her captions, Midler said:

"'In Search of the Sanderson Sisters' is the best thing to happen to #Halloween since Hocus Pocus + Reeses Pieces."


The actress added that the event would hold on the 31st of October. That would be Halloween season, making the project's release even more special. Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy have also promoted the new project on their social media accounts, much to fans' delight.

A "Hocus Pocus" sequel is reportedly in the works on Disney+.


While the "Hocus Pocus" reunion is having fans excited, it is worth noting that it will not be for a movie. Instead, it will be for Hulaween, an event benefiting the New York Restoration Project.

The New York Restoration Project is Midler's nonprofit organization, and it works to restore parks and gardens across New York State. While Midler conducts Hulaween every year, sources have confirmed that this year's edition will happen virtually due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.


However, fans clamoring for more content might get their wish soon as a "Hocus Pocus" sequel is reportedly in the works on Disney+. As explained, many considered the original "Hocus Pocus" movie a flop.

Thankfully, yearly Halloween airings and availability on streaming services have raised its profile. Considering how popular the movie has gotten, the anticipation for the sequel will definitely be at a fever pitch.

For now, however, fans of the 90s comedy movie, "Hocus Pocus," will also want to see what the three actresses have for them as the reunion inches even closer.
