First of all we all need to agree that Bette Midler resurrecting Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus this weekend pretty much won the weekend. I really hope this is a power move to pressure Disney into giving us Hocus Pocus 2. I really do.
From Just Jared:
Bette recently opened up about her surprise that there hasn’t been a sequel to hugely popular flick.
“For the life of me, I can’t understand why there’s not a sequel,” she told Billboard.
Bette added, “You don’t get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we’re having a blast…All the shackles were off…and we were allowed to be as wild as we wanted to be. It was a perfect storm of fun.”
This isn’t the first time Midler has brought the character back. Back in 2015, Bette dressed up and performed “I Put A Spell On You” at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
There’s been a lot of reboots and sequels coming out lately and I am pretty sure that everyone wants to see a Hocus Pocus 2. Until we get the sequel, enjoy watching Bette singing your Halloween favorite.
