The Sanderson Sisters are coming back for more.
After rumors that ‘Hocus Pocus’ would be getting a sequel for Disney+, Bette Midler — the original Winifred Sanderson — confirmed that she, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Naijm will return for another installment.

Midler, 74, recently appeared on Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” and dropped a major hint when asked about whether or not she would be returning for a new installment.
“They want to make a movie; they’ve asked us if we were interested, and, of course, all of us said yes,” Midler said.
“I’m game. I’m totally game.”
It won’t be the first time that the Sanderson Sisters will reunite. Midler announced last week on Instagram that the bewitching trio will come together to host a virtual charity event, “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover,” on Friday, Oct. 30.
“It was so bizarre to have been these characters 27 years ago,” Midler said regarding reuniting with Parker and Naijmy.
“And to put all that gear on .?.?. It was so bizarre, because we fell into exactly the same relationship we had and the same style of behaving on-screen that we had 27 years ago. As if we had been off for a weekend!”
As of now, there is no date set for “Hocus Pocus 2” to cast its spell on Disney+.
Initially, the sequel was moving forward without the original three — much to fans’ dismay. We’re glad Disney finally saw the light.
