Walt Disney Studios are currently developing a new Hocus Pocus movie for Disney+.  The film is in early stages in development and will be written by TV writer producer Jen D’Angelo, who has previously worked on Happy Together, LA to Vegas, and Workaholics.

It’s unknown if the new movie will be a sequel or a remake.  The original Hocus Pocus stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are not yet attached to the sequel but Disney is hopeful that they may become involved.

This isn’t the first time a new Hocus Pocus movie has gone into production, as the Disney Channel began work on a new version a couple of years ago, but never got off the ground.

Are you excited for a new Hocus Pocus movie?

    Not that excited about it. Was a fan of the original, but don't really see the need for a remake or sequel. HOWEVER, if they went for a series, that might be more interesting to me...the idea of a longer form story could be fun.
