​Original Cast Of Hocus Pocus Have All Said Yes To Sequel

​Original Cast Of Hocus Pocus Have All Said Yes To Sequel

We're all absolute suckers for nostalgia, meaning we all love a sequel or a reboot for a classic movie we once enjoyed as kids - just like Hocus Pocus, which is getting a new lease of life with Disney+.

But while a return to Salem would probably be a worthwhile throwback whoever bosses manage to cast, I think most of us can agree that ideally we'd want to see Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker back around the cauldron.

Well, according to Sarah Jessica Parker - who starred in the original as Sarah Sanderson - they're all up for it.

Parker shared a still from the film, which showed her character alongside on-screen sisters Winnie and Mary, over on Instagram, writing: "Halloween 2019. One for the books."

Naturally, it didn't take long for the comments to all turn to one thing.

One hopeful Instagrammer commented: "Any chance of a sequel?"

They followed it up with a praying emoji and a fingers crossed emoji.

And, lo and behold, Parker didn't only respond, but she also wrote: "We have all said yes. Now we wait. X."

Another asked if there would be a 'round two', to which the 54-year-old actor responded: "Sure!"

The original film was released back in 1993 and starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as three witches: sisters Winifred, Sarah and Mary Sanderson.

While the film received mixed critical response at the time, over the past two-and-a-half decades it's become something of a cult classic thanks to screenings on the likes of the Disney Channel and ABC Family - now known as Freeform.

Now Disney is bringing it back for a second instalment, although whether this will be a straight-up sequel or some form of reboot is yet to be confirmed.

Director Kenny Ortega has said previously he'd be up for a second film, but warned it would only really be if Midler, Parker and Najimy were all game as well.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight back in 2017, he said: "I would like to see a sequel, and I think fans would like to see a sequel. I think it would be much more fun to bring the ladies back."

Ortega continued: "They're all still vital and in their prime and capable of doing so much that it would be great to see Bette and Kathy and Sarah come back together to do another movie and I think they would like to."

Well, like Sarah Jessica Parker said, it looks like now we wait...
