CONFIRMED: Hocus Pocus 2 to Film in Salem, MA This Summer
The original Hocus Pocus came out in 1993 and while it didn't see immediate success, the love for the Disney film rose to cult-like status over the years.
Fans demanded it and thanks to Disney+, we'll be seeing the return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as they reprise their roles as the Sanderson sisters; Winifred, Sarah, and Mary.
