It could easily be argued that the single most popular Halloween movie of the 90s is Hocus Pocus. Sure, you've got your Ernest Scared Stupids and your Addams Familys etc etc, but come on, is there a more iconic trio of spooky characters than the Sanderson sisters? I don't think so!
Released in 1993 by Disney, Hocus Pocus follows three witches (played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker) who are resurrected on Halloween night and prowl the land for children, only to be stopped by a teenage couple who catch onto their evil plan.
The movie is an absolute cult-classic that's become a staple of Halloween for every 90s kid, and with the current wave of 90s nostalgia sweeping through the world, one question's been on every fan's lips: "when are we getting a sequel?"
There's been a few hoax posters circulated about a sequel, and people react so vividly to them each time that there's clearly a demand, yet Disney's been surprisingly mum on the subject. The stars of the film have talked about the idea of coming back, and there's even apparently a Disney Channel made-for-TV remake in the works, but still no sequel.
Well, there's finally been an announcement about a sequel to Hocus Pocus, but if you're expecting another cinematic adventure starring the Sanderson sisters, don't get your hopes up: it's going to be in an upcoming book.
