Hocus Pocus 2 is Still a Thing, Sort Of

Hocus Pocus screenwriter Mick Garris thinks that Hocus Pocus 2 is moving ahead...

It’s been a little while since we heard rumours of a sequel to the 1993 Halloween hit, Hocus Pocus. The original movie starred Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, and was penned by Mick Garris, a man best known for his many Stephen King adaptations.

Garris has now given a new interview to Forbes, where he’s been chatting about the possibility of a sequel. And it turns out that it’s still active, to some degree.

“There have been rumours of a Hocus Pocus sequel for the last 10 years that will not die,” he said. “I have heard they are developing the script, I haven’t been involved in it but I think there will be a sequel it might be for Disney Channel or Freeform or ABC. I think it will be for television but I hear that it is moving ahead.”

He also added that he expects the core trio to return. “If they don’t do that I think it would be a big mistake because all three of them are still so incredibly potent and powerful and great performers and who else can recreate those characters?”
