Disney Developing a Hocus Pocus TV Movie

In a reimagining of the amazing 1993 movie starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker (and don’t you dare argue about that), Disney will enlist a new cast and crew to bring Hocus Pocus to the small screen. The movie will be written by Scarlett Lacy of The Royals fame. Producer David Kirschner will return as an executive producer.

Hocus Pocus tells (told?) the story of three witches resurrected in Salem, Mass. hundreds of years after their hanging, and the surprisingly wacky torments they inflict upon the town while trying to regain their full power. Time will tell what changes Disney makes with this version. Hopefully they keep the good parts (the witches and the little girl they chase) and change up the parts that haven’t aged well (the stupid teen boy who apparently created the greatest sin of all time by being a virgin at 16 or whatever).

It is unknown who will star in or direct this new version. As such there is no planned release date, either.

Just…please don’t mess this up. Everyone needs Hocus Pocus in their life, and this is a great opportunity to give it to millions of kids currently unaware of this movie’s genius. If it doesn’t work, we demand Disney force all children to watch the original.
