Hocus Pocus 2 Is OFFICIALLY Happening

If you were born before 2000 hit, no doubt you knew of ‘Hocus Pocus’ - the story of three sisters, three witch sisters, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

In the original film they were killed by the townsfolk, because they liked to devour children.

But they said they’d be back… and 300 years later, they were - and the movie was INSANELY good.

So, how about a number two?

Screenwriter Mick Garris says a sequel is now a reality.

"There have been rumours of a Hocus Pocus sequel for the last 10 years that will not die," he told Forbes.

"I have heard they are developing the script, I haven't been involved in it but I think there will be a sequel it might be for Disney Channel or Freeform or ABC. I think it will be for television but I hear that it is moving ahead."

Garris revealed he's sure the trio will be back to reprise their roles.

"I think they are, yeah, I think they are," he says.

"If they don't do that I think it would be a big mistake because all three of them are still so incredibly potent and powerful and great performers and who else can recreate those characters?"

This comes after last year, and Bette Middler admitted she didn’t know why there hadn’t already been a sequel. In 2014 she also revealed her co-stars, Parker and Najimi were keen for the gig, too.

"For the life of me, I can't understand why there's not a sequel," she told Billboard.

"They are wiling to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a Hocus Pocus 2, ask the Walt Disney company," she told Digital Spy.

Let’s hope nothing’s changed there…
