This is not a drill! Disney recently released news that there is a remake of the legendary Halloween movie Hocus Pocus on the way. This Hocus Pocus remake announcement has been confirmed as true, but the film will not include the original cast. In 2015, Bette Midler, the actress that played Winifred Sanderson, shot down fans’ hopes of a remake with this tweet: “After all these years and all the fan demand, I do believe I can stand and firmly say an unequivocal no.” The remake is in early development, so there isn’t much known about the movie.

What is known about the movie is making infuriating fans of the original. The Sanderson sisters will not be played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy. The script will be written by Scarlett Lacey, and the remake will be produced by David Kirschner (the original producer). Many people are giving reasons as to why the remake will be a disaster. It has been argued that the original 90’s vibe will not be accurately captured or the beloved adult humor could possibly be taken away. While both are reasonable arguments, the new remake has many possibilities and we will have to see if it flops or not.
