Disney Working On Hocus Pocus TV Movie


The Disney Channel is working on a Hocus Pocus revival which will be based on the cult 1993 film.

The 1993 film was written by Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris, based on a story by Garris and Kirschner, and directed by zKenny Ortega. Garris hinted at a possible Hocus Pocus TV project in a recent interview.

Scarlett Lacy (The Royals) is set to write the new film which will air as a Disney Channel TV movie. 

The original Hocus Pocus followed three villainous witches, played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, who are inadvertently resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts. The film has become a cult hit and a staple on Disney Channel and Freeform with annual airings.
