The stars of the 1993 Halloween flick “Hocus Pocus” are having a virtual reunion. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy — have confirmed their appearance at a live, virtual fund-raiser for the New York Restoration Project (NYRP). Founded by Midler in 1995, its mission is to create and transform outdoor spaces in NYC.
For the first time this year, the historically hot-ticket affair is inviting the general public to join in what they’re calling the “hottest pandemic-safe Halloween event of the year.” For $10, fans can snag a ticket to the event, “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover,” Friday, Oct. 30 on NYRP.org.
Despite its dismal earnings upon release, “Hocus Pocus” has since risen to cult fame, especially among millennials who yearn to see Winifred (Midler), Sarah (Parker) and Mary Sanderson (Najimy) return to modern day Salem, as they did in the original. For her part, Midler, has publicly pleaded for producers to conjure a sequel. “Oh my goodness me. Oh, I hope they get to me before I’m a corpse,” she told Entertainment Weekly in 2019. “We wanna fly again. I hope Disney+ is a big success and I hope we get to do it, because [Winifred] is of course one of my favorite characters.”
