‘Hocus Pocus’ sequel is in the works
Bette revealed, “They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes. I’m game, I’m totally game.”
Unfortunately, there are no other details about the sequel quite yet. However, the Sanderson sisters are reuniting on October 30, 2020, for a Halloween fundraiser. They will wear their witch outfits once again!
Bette admitted, “It was so bizarre to have been these characters 27 years ago. 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!”
