Hocus Pocus 3 is on the way.

Sean Bailey, President of the Walt Disney Production Studios revealed that Disney will be creating a third instalment of the iconic  movie after the success of Hocus Pocus 2 on their streaming platform last September.

The confirmation was published in a report in the New York Times where Sean discussed all Disney’s upcoming live-action projects.

Hocus Pocus 2, the sequel to the original movie which was released 30 years ago in 1993, broke streaming records when it was released on Disney+ in September of last year. So fans will be delighted to hear the witches of Eastwick are coming back to our screens for a third film.

No other information surrounding the film has been given but all three actresses Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker have said they would be open to making another movie – and we can’t really have Hocus Pocus without the witches of Eastwick now can we!

The trio play the iconic Sanderson sisters, three cursed witches who come back  from the dead in search of some young souls to destroy. They return to the known town of witchcraft Salem, Massachusetts decades after they were banished for terrorising the town during the Salem Witch Trials.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly back in September Bette Midler told them: “I’ve always been envious of people who get to do their favourite character more than once. I’d love to have a franchise — especially a character I love playing.”

Kathy Najimy originally said she didn’t feel there was a story for a third movie before quickly recanting saying: “I guess, never say never. … I don’t know that there are plans for a third one, but I know fans are dedicated to this film. I’m just happy we can bring this to them.”

As for Sarah Jessica Parker well…: “Of course I’d be happy to have a conversation. It just depends on what Kathy and Bette want!”

Well, we’re more than ready to be enthralled by a third instalment of Hocus Pocus!
