Hocus Pocus 2

Hocus Pocus 2‘s release is just around the corner! And fans are already curious about the potential of more films with the Sanderson sisters!

Anne Fletcher, director of Hocus Pocus 2, is already commenting on the potential of a third film. And she wouldn’t rule out a third film if Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker all want to return as the Sanderson sisters.

“I have definitely left it WIDE open for any sequel. Now it’s really up to them if they want to do it.” Fletcher confirms to SFX magazine.

“I can’t say anything other than yes, it is left open. Will they do it? I don’t know, they haven’t even talked about it, that I can be honest with you.” she adds.

The Potential of Hocus Pocus 3

Producer Lynn Harris also refuses to rule out the possibility, noting that the fantasy themes will always be popular with fans.

“There’s always potential. It’s a movie about magic and witches. Those things are timeless aren’t they? A multiverse of witches!” Harris adds.

The prospect of a third film could be decided by Midler, Najimy and Parker, who play sisters Winne, Mary and Sarah respectively – with the trio also playing a huge role in making the upcoming sequel a reality.

The prospect of a third film could be decided by Midler, Najimy and Parker – who play Sanderson sisters Winne, Mary and Sarah respectively. The trio were largely responsible for making Hocus Pocus 2 a reality.

“We approached the women and said, ‘Hey, guys, it’s time to get the band back together’. They were all amenable and excited and had great notes on the scrip, which we took into account, because each of them as such a deep awareness of their character.” Harris recalls.

“Even though it had been 27 years, when we first started talking. They really remembered and understood who they were as Winnie, Sarah and Mary. They clicked right back into character, and it was magic.” She adds.

For Fletcher, it was a dream to see the three stars interacting on set, particularly as it came to the chemistry between their characters.

“It is truly as though they had not been out of costume for 27 years. They went right back into character.” Fletcher comments.

“When I say character, not just their own individual character, but the way in which they relate to one another, which is very specific, in terms of the familial squabbles in birth order.” she adds.

After Hocus Pocus 2, if there is others sequels, I hope there were also the return of Omri Katz: Max Dennison, Thora Birch: Dani Dennison, Vinessa Shaw: Allison, Larry Bagby: Ernie/Ice, Tobias Jelinek: Jay; and the music from the movie released in 1993 : “Main Titles” and “I put a spell on you”.
