Sarah Jessica Parker & Kathy Najimy Want to Make a 'Hocus Pocus' Sequel!

Yesterday, we brought you the amazing news that Bette Midler was totally down to take part in a sequel to her 1993 hit Hocus Pocus during her Reddit AMA.

Now, it’s been revealed that along with Bette, her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are willing to do a sequel as well!

“Yep I’m in. X sj” wrote in a tweet to a BuzzFeed editor after being asked if she would partake.

Kathy wrote in a letter to the site, “I have read Bette’s quote and I agree. The outpouring of love from Hocus-ites has been astounding. The creativity of their Sanderson sisters costumes, posters, artwork, t-shirts, statues, TV stills, photos, compliments and line quotes have blown up social media and I want them to know … We see and appreciate it all. When a film is being shot, you never quite know the impact.. If it’ll be a hit or a miss, and..with this one … we hear y’all loud and clear! A sequel is totally in The Disney company’s hands — And it will be exciting to see what transpires!”

Bette is telling her fans: “Inundate the Disney company, because I have canvassed the girls and 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. You have been SO adorable. This has been most enlightening. SISTAHS!”

Now go write to Disney and tell them you want a sequel!
