A 'Hocus Pocus' Sequel Is Coming, But It's Not A Movie

- Page 1

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!

Disney

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?"

Reminder: this is fake.Imgur

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.

Shelley Duval Says That Robin Williams Is Alive And She Knows Where He Is

Robin Williams was one of our generations finest actors. He was a comedic genius with a mind that was constantly running a mile a minute. He was more clever than any of us could ever hope to be, and we were lucky to have had him for the short time we did. While he passed away too young, Williams made a lot of amazing hit movies. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Good Will Hunting all proved he was capable at making entertaining content that we all loved. But his first big staring role in a motion picture was actually

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of
