Disney may have started answering our Hocus Pocus prayers, and the many rumours of a Hocus Pocus sequel being in the works.
Even though these are still baby steps, Movie legend and Star Performer Bette Midler has shared a photo of herself, together with Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, IN COSTUME, as the Sanderson Sisters are back together for a good cause!

Midler posted the pic to her Instagram and wrote alongside it: ‘Your 3 fav witches – @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy & ME – are returning for 1 night only on 10/30 at 8p ET!’
She added: ‘In Search of the Sanderson Sisters’ is the best thing to happen to #Halloween since Hocus Pocus + Reeses Pieces.’ In fact, Disney’s Favourite Witches are coming back together to help raise money for the New York Restoration Project. The NGO was founded by Midler and partners with communities to ensure that all the residents of New York have equal access to the benefits of nature, through its environmental justice work.
In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover will be a one-hour virtual broadcast, hosted by none other than Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and will also feature appearances by Glenn Close, Adam Lambert, Meryl Street, Billy Crystal and Jennifer Hudson.
Hocus Pocus was released in 1993 and it followed the three Sanderson Sister being brought back from the dead in modern-day Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween. The movie was directed by Kenny Ortega and is not something of a cult classic, especially around Halloween.
