Disney + is developing a second part of the 1993 film Hocus Pocus . The streaming service hopes to be able to add Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, the protagonists from the first part, to the cast of the new film . Collider reports this Thursday.
The 1993 comedy is about a witch (Midler), who returns to an American city after three hundred years with her two sisters (Najimy and Parker).
The script for the second part is written by Jen D'Angelo who is known from the television series Happy Together, LA to Vegas and Workaholics .
Two years ago, Disney Channel made an attempt to make a television film based on the original Hocus Pocus film with a new cast. In the end, the project did not get off the ground. Midler said at the time that he did not intend to participate in the remake.
Disney + will be definitively released on November 12 after the current trial period. From that moment the service costs 6.99 euros per month and the range is expanded with new productions that can only be seen via the streaming service.
