The "GOOD" news? Disney has announced there will be a new installment featuring the Sanderson Sisters.
The original fan response:
The not so good news? The movie will be a television REMAKE. AND it will be star an entirely new cast!
Fan reaction to that tidbit?
Lead actress and icon Bette Midler has been vocal about her anticipation in waiting for years to reprise one of her favorite roles.
Diehard fans took to social media to express their disappointment.
Good morning to everyone except the person who decided to remake Hocus Pocus as a Disney Channel movie— Nicole Pomarico (@nicolepomarico) September 28, 2017
Hey Disney art thou listening? If the entire original cast is in and... THEY ARE, what's the deal? Bette, Kathy, Sarah, Omri, Thora and Jinx the cat have all said they'd be on board.
Disney is planning to remake Hocus Pocus. In other news, my wife is looking up curses to cast on Disney.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) September 28, 2017
I wish I had 280 characters (a thing that nobody asked for) to rage about the remake of Hocus Pocus (a thing that nobody asked for).— AnnoyingActorFriend (@Actor_Friend) September 28, 2017
This might be an idea best sent back to the drawing board.
