It was reported earlier this year that Disney+ had confirmed a sequel to the much beloved Halloween classic Hocus Pocus, but since there has been no more information, that is until now.

Bette Midler gave fans a much needed dose of good news announcing on Fox 5 New York’s “Good Day New York” that the original Sanderson sisters have all agreed to return for the sequel!

“They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes,” said Midler. “I’m game, I’m totally game.”

After the news broke fans couldn’t contain their excitement.

This fan hopes the news is true.

While this one shared that getting good news in 2020 was a bit jarring.

This fan shared the movie poster for the sequel exclaiming that this is real!

This fan used an appropriate meme from the original film to express their feelings about the sequel.

While this fan said what we were all thinking.

This fan shared this is the happiest they’ve been all year, and we agree!

This fan shared their excitement with an amazing tribute to the lead Sanderson sister Winifred!

There is no date confirmed for when we can expect to watch the sequel as of yet. However, the cast is reuniting on October 30th for one night only virtual event, “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters”. The event will raise money for NYRP, an organization founded by Bette Midler herself.

“NYRP has planted trees, renovated gardens, restored parks, and transformed open space for communities throughout New York City’s five boroughs. As New York’s only citywide conservancy, we bring private resources to spaces that lack adequate municipal support, fortifying the City’s aging infrastructure and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighborhoods.”

The event will also feature appearances from Glenn Close, Billy Crystal, Jamie Lee Curtis, John Debney, Samantha Diaz, Todrick Hall, Jennifer Hudson, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Michael Kors, Adam Lambert, George Lopez, Alex Moffat, Vinessa Shaw, Martin Short, Sarah Silverman, John Stamos, Meryl Streep, Kenan Thompson, Sophie von Haselberg, and other surprise guests.

“In Search of the Sanderson Sisters” will only air at 8pm EST/5pm PST for the one night and will not be re-streamed. Tickets cost $13 and can be purchased via the link below.
