Some movies just don’t need sequels…. yet Deadline reports that the Disney Channel is rebooting Hocus Pocus as a TV movie.

Yes, really.

The beloved 1993 Halloween film starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, is being “reimagined” and the original cast will not be invited back.

David Kirschner — a producer on the original film — will serve as executive producer, but other than that Disney is going with an entirely new cast.

So how does the main witch, Bette Midler feel about a reboot? She told fans on Facebook in 2015, “After all these years and all the fan demand, I do believe I can stand and firmly say an unequivocal no.”
