Bette Midler Gives an Update on a ‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel, Details on How to Watch the Reunion

Every Halloween, we all collectively light the black flame candle to awaken the Sanderson sisters from their slumber. 

Why? Because Hocus Pocus is not only a staple of the spooky season, it’s a nostalgic reminder of our childhood. 

Each year, we also ask the question: what are the odds of a sequel?

This year, Bette Midler (Winifred “Winnie” Sanderson) finally gave us the answer. 

The 74-year-old said she would “absolutely” be up for reprising her iconic role. 

“I can’t wait to fly,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

This is good, no, great news, considering last year, Disney announced that sequel to the 1993 classic is in development.

While there hasn’t been much word on the revival (we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the pandemic’s fault), Disney would be setting itself up for failure if it didn’t capitalize on the obsession with Midler and her other two “sistahs” Sarah Jessica Park (Sarah Sanderson) and Kathy Najimy (Mary Sanderson). 

Midler seemed confident that the sequel will happen telling the outlet, “we’re just talking logistics.”

Midler has been very vocal about her desire to participate in a sequel. The year prior, she told ET that she hoped they get to her “before I’m a corpse,” adding that it could possibly debut on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+.

“We wanna fly again,” she added. “I hope Disney+ is a big success and I hope we get to do it, because [Winifred] is of course one of my favorite characters … I can’t wait to read the script. We’re gonna see what happens.”

 
 

While you may not get to see them in a sequel this year, the actresses are set for an epic reunion at Midler’s annual Hulaween fundraising gala, which will happen virtually this year due to coronavirus. 

Not much is known about the reunion itself, but the event is being called In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeoverso it’s definitely exciting for fans of the 90s film.

The reunion is set to take place on Friday 30th October 2020 at 8 p.m. EST. Tickets for the magical evening are available for $10 at NYRP

A personalized access link will be emailed to you in advance of the event!

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

 

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

Published

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
