The famous Witches are coming back. Yes, Hocus Pocus coming back on our screens after a long time. After receiving lots of love the directors and Walt Disney are coming with a sequel.
Hocus Pocus is an American comedy film of 1993, directed by Kenny Ortega and written by Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris. This movie had a box office collection of $39.5 million.
In an interview, when the author of the movie, Mick Garry, was asked for Hocus pocus 2, he said,” I am excited about it. Still, I think the main reason the movie worked was the Sanderson Sisters, those actresses in these roles, these performances, that I believe is the key to that film’s long life.
He also added, “And I think they’re the reasons that it is still about as it came out in 1993. And I would love to see them reunite in it. I think that is the strategy, but I really don’t understand. I have heard that that is what’s happening and that I feel it’s likely to be for Disney+. However, I’m not engaged with it, which is fine. You do not necessarily want to revisit every one of the touchstones of your past.”
