'Hocus Pocus' Reboot in the Works at Disney Channel

'Hocus Pocus' Reboot in the Works at Disney Channel

There’s a Hocus Pocus TV reboot in the works.

The fan-favorite film from 1993, which starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as everyone’s favorite witches, is reportedly in talks to be rebooted on the Disney Channel.

Deadline reports that the new TV movie will have a completely new cast. The TV movie will be written by Scarlett Lacey and David Kirschner, who produced the original, set to executive produce.

Two years ago, Bette shot down hopes that a Hocus Pocus sequel featuring the original cast could one day happen.

Hocus Pocus is set to air 16 times during Freeform’s annual 13 Nights of Halloween line-up.

    Jared, I love you and your site but please don’t treat this like good news! This is gonna suck BIG TIME! No one is gonna be able to do these characters justice like the original has! Only Bette, Sarah and Kathy can be the Sanderson Sisters! No one else! They better have a very very good cast in mind to do this!
