The original Sanderson Sisters are set to back a comeback!

Multiple outlets report that original Hocus Pocus stars, Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker, are looking to return for the sequel. 

The three stars are all interested in starring in the planned sequel of Disney’s Halloween classic, currently in development at Disney+. 

“Oh my goodness me. Oh, I hope they get to me before I’m a corpse,” Midler told Entertainment Tonight. “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…. I can’t wait to read the script. We’re gonna see what happens.”

“I don’t know if the worlds are going to collide so that we could all three do it at the same time,” Najimy added. “But I’m happy that it’s happening because the fans are really rabid and they really want it,” she added. “[And] if we’re not all available to star in it, I think it would be so great to do a cameo. I think that’d be really fun.”

Parker further fueled speculations by replying to a fan’s question about a possible sequel on Instagram with “We have all said yes. Now we wait.”
