AMUCK AMUCK AMUCK!
Disney+ has announced plans for a sequel to 1993’s smash Halloween hit “Hocus Pocus.”
According to Variety, Jen D’Angelo (“Workaholics” writer and co-producer)is on board to pen the script. The story will reportedly follow the witches as they try to acclimate to the 20th Century.They then discover — to their horror — that Halloween has become a holiday.
At present Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are NOT attached- nor are the other original “Hocus Pocus” cast- but Disney is hopeful that they may become involved.
National treasure Doug Jones, who played Billy Butcherson in the first film, posted this great throwback image along with what he knows about the possible sequel:
Talk of a sequel has been happening for over 5 years now, so with the recent articles about this, you know as much as I do. I have no answers to those questions other than I’d be tickled pink to return as Billy, if offered.
We’ll let you know what we hear about this possible project.
Disney+ is set to launch next month on November 12th.
