Hocus Pocus Celebrating 25th Anniversary With Special Featuring OG Cast!

B0o0o0o0k! There’s going to be a 25th anniversary special in honor of Hocus Pocus featuring original castmates Sarah Jessica Parker and more. Freeform announced it will air a star-studded Hocus Pocus 25th anniversary special on Saturday, October 20, as part of the network's (amazing, btw) new 31 Nights of Halloween programming block.

The much-needed celebratory special will feature interviews with the movie's stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Omri Katz, Thora Birch, Doug Jones, Amanda Shepherd, Larry Bagby, Jason Marsden and Tobias Jelinek, as well as director Kenny Ortega, writers Mick Garris and David Kirschner, choreographer Peggy Holmes and composer John Debney. Dove Cameron, PrettyMuch and Junior New System will also reportedly perform.

As for Bette Midler, nothing has been confirmed yet, but what are the Sanderson sisters without Winifred?! 


The fun-filled TV special will also include a Hocus Pocus costume contest, and before and after the show the network will air a "Pop'n Knowledge" edition of the movie "that will include a mix of trivia, observations and commentary around key moments and quotes in the movie." 

We are officially excited for Halloween — are you?! 

Catch all the above in its glory by tuning in to Freeform on Saturday, October 20, at 8:15 p.m. to catch the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash.
