Disney Is Making A Hocus Pocus 2? A Muck A Muck A Muck
By Alex Cranz
Things that may blow your mind about Hocus Pocus:
The hot ghost dude who is a cat? That dweeby dude from NCIS!
The zombie who may have given you feelings in your pants? The Silver Surfer, creepy dude from Pan’s Labyrinth and the lead creeper in the silent episode of Buffy!
Virginity? Not related to the Virgin Mary or alcohol-less daiquiris! (Ten year old me was not wise in the ways of love and confused by this major plot point but tried to pretend she wasn’t.)
A sequel? In the works!
Apparently Disney has realized that nostalgia for Hocus Pocus will soon be reaching an all time high and many of the ladies who were madly in love with the film in their youths now have kids of their own that they would like to take to see all the goofy brilliant let’s obsess over it at slumber parties fun. Only, you know, a sequel instead of a rerelease fo the original for its twentieth (?!) anniversary.
Seriously. I watched this movie SO MANY times and then I revisited it in college and it held up and now I’m a little scared to watch it because it may suck. Not sure if I need or want a sequel though. What the hell would even happen? Why is it currently called Hocus Pocus 2: Rise of the Elderwitch? That is way too gritty a title for a sequel to a movie about bust ladies with vibrant voices riding vacuums and sucking the soul of Thora Birch.
