Bette Midler and Co-Stars Want to Return for ‘Hocus Pocus 2’

http://movieweb.com/tina-fey-to-produce-possibly-star-in-hocus-pocus-2-with-melissa-mccarthy/Back in July, it was reported that Tina Fey was set to produce and possibly star in a Hocus Pocus sequel. Shortly thereafter, she clarified that her Disney witch movie was not, in fact, Hocus Pocus 2, but an entirely different witch movie altogether. This disappointed many fans, who have long been clamoring for a follow up to the 1993 magical comedy starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

While Hocus Pocus was not a smash hit upon its release in 1993, pulling in less than $40 million during its theatrical run, it has become a home video, DVD and now streaming mainstay that continues to find its followers. If you truly want to see the girls return, you better start your petitions now. As this is Disney, it's possible that they could eventually do a straight-to-VOD sequel with none of the original stars returning. That's probably not what the fans want. though.
