Is 'Hocus Pocus 2' Really Getting Made & Will the Original Witches Return?

When it comes to kids’ movies that have reached cult classic status for millennials, the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus is right at the top.

It’s been rumored for over five years that Hocus Pocus 2 is getting made and now that is one massive step closer to becoming a reality. Following the news last October that Disney+ had hired one of the writers from Workaholics to come up with a sequel script.

Word is coming down that they have hired a director, Adam Shankman, who recently helmed What Men Want and Hairspray.

So its clear the project is pretty much a go, but one big roadblock stands in the way...None of the original witches Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker or Kathy Najimy are signed on, as of right now.

But that said, here’s the news you’ve been hoping for...All three are fully expected to return and Hocus Pocus 2 may be here by Halloween.
