'Hocus Pocus 2'? Bette Midler Tells Film Fans to Ask Disney for Sequel

By    |   Thursday, 13 Nov 2014 05:44 PM

Bette Midler and “the girls” are ready for “Hocus Pocus 2” the actress told a crowd of Redditors who were wondering if Walt Disney was ever going to make a follow-up to the popular 1993 movie.

The "girls" presumably are Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, the two other witches in "Hocus Pocus." Midler told her fans they’d have to take the issue up with Disney.

“Hi, Bette. Can you just do a Hocus Pocus II so my girlfriend can make me stop watching the original every Halloween?” one person wrote to Midler during her ask-me-anything session on Reddit.

chuckles You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney company,” Midler responded.

At the top of the thread, she wrote, “Inundate the Disney company, because I have canvassed the girls and they are wiling to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a HOCUS POCUS 2, ask the Walt Disney company. You have been SO adorable. This has been most enlightening. SISTAHS!”

Even the vague idea put forward by Midler — with no idea of whether Disney would even consider a second movie — got Twitter atwitter.





And, of course, there’s a petition on Change.org, just begun Thursday, which asks for signers to a letter to Disney which says, in part, “Every generation deserves their own version of Thackery Binx. Don't rob the children of what they so rightfully deserve.”

Midler's new album "It's the Girls!" is out now.
