‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel In Development For Disney+, Sarah Jessica Parker Seemingly Confirms Her Involvement

“Hocus Pocus” is conjuring up a sequel!

As Variety reports, Disney+ is currently developing a long-awaited followup to the 1993 comedy about a trio of wackadoodle witches played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

In the original, the three witches were placed under a curse in 1693 until accidentally resurrected 300 years later by a young boy who moves to the witches’ hometown of Salem, Massachusetts.

According to Variety, “Workaholics” writer and co-producer Jen D’Angelo is onboard to write the script, with no director yet attached.

When Variety first reported that a followup was in the works, it seemed like the three actresses had not committed yet. But on Nov. 1, Parker shared a picture from “Hocus Pocus” and replied to fan’s comments about a sequel.

“Any chance of a sequel?” wrote one person. “We have all said yes. Now we wait,” the actress replied.

While the film has become a Halloween cult favourite in the 25-plus years since its release, “Hocus Focus” was initially considered a box office flop, given that its budget was $28 million and the film earned just $39 million worldwide.
