Is a “Hocus Pocus” Sequel in the Works for Disney+?

Read next

With the November launch of Disney+ we’re looking forward to streaming all kinds of classic faves. Along with Star Wars, The Avengers, Frozen, Toy Story and other beloved Disney gems, the new network is set to revive a few beloved blockbusters—and according to recent reports, this means a Hocus Pocus sequel!

Collider first reported on the sequel, citing sources who say Disney recently hired Workaholics writer and co-producer Jen D’Angelo to pen the Hocus Pocus 2 script.

While there are no cast confirmations yet, reportedly D’Angelo is trying to nab original film stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy for the sequel.

As of now, the made-for-Disney+ film is still in development. This means there’s no word yet on whether the original Sanderson sisters will play central roles in the new script, what the storyline holds for viewers or the release date.
