Disney hasn’t yet formally endorsed Hocus Pocus 3, but if Hocus Pocus 2’s popularity is any indication, it very well may.
The sequel’s September 30 release made it the most-watched Disney+ movie premiere in US history.
Since Halloween has here, there is little question that it will receive a whole new wave of views over the weekend. That success was simply based on its initial three days of availability.
Hocus Pocus 2’s conclusion feels very conclusive, although there is a credit scene that leaves the door open for the Sanderson sisters to perhaps make another appearance.
Don’t give up hope simply because the threequel hasn’t been confirmed; the sequel took almost 30 years to get out.
According to sequel star Whitney Peak: “They can always come back. It would be hard to create a third movie without the Sanderson Sisters, because it’s their movie. They are Hocus Pocus. It’s hard to imagine what a movie would be like without them,”
Bette Midler revealed that: “If there was a third one, of course I’d sign on, but I don’t know how. I can’t imagine what the story would be, but I love Winifred, Sarah, Mary, and our relationship. It’s good for women.
“We stick together through hell and high water, but we do cause mayhem, and not many women cause that much mayhem!”
