Hocus Pocus 3 in line after sequel success

World Disney is in the pipeline to develop Hocus Pocus 3 after the huge success of the movie sequel.

A third film in the beloved franchise starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as a trio of Salem witches is currently in the works, according to a New York Times interview with Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production.

Hocus Pocus 3 is one of many projects on Bailey’s future roster, which includes roughly 50 other titles in various stages of gestation.

The announcement follows the major streaming success of last year’s Hocus Pocus 2, which reunited the central stars 29 years after the release of director Kenny Ortega’s 1993 original, and broke streaming records for the Disney+ platform upon its debut.

Hocus Pocus 2, Midler, Parker, and Najimy shared their thoughts on continuing the series for a third film.

Director Anne Fletcher took over to helm Hocus Pocus 2, which again resurrected Midler, Parker, and Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters, who returned to terrorize a modern-day group of teenage girls who unwittingly brought them back from the dead on Halloween, and the film ended on an ambiguous note that teased a potential continuation of the story ahead.
