Reboot Of 'Hocus Pocus' Will Not Feature Original Cast, And People Are Furious

Hocus Pocus is a modern day cult classic, and it has become synonymous with the Halloween holiday. Rabid fans have waited decades for a promised sequel starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker. Well, they've FINALLY received their news!

The "GOOD" news? Disney has announced there will be a new installment featuring the Sanderson Sisters.

The not so good news? The movie will be a television REMAKE. AND it will be star an entirely new cast!

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.

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. 

This might be an idea best sent back to the drawing board.
