While October has not yet arrived, those eagerly awaiting the Halloween season have received exciting news. The 1993 Disney film “Hocus Pocus,” a cult classic, is set to make a comeback on the big screen to commemorate its 30th anniversary.
The Sanderson sisters, the central characters of the film, are slated to reappear in cinemas. According to a statement released on AMC’s official website, the sisters, who have been enchanting audiences for three decades, will be featured in a limited-time screening. The statement elaborates that the witches, brought back to life by unwitting mischief-makers, aim to cast a spell on their town and regain their youthful appearance.
The movie, which originally starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and a young Thora Birch, will be available in theaters for a limited period starting October 6th.
For those who prefer the comfort of their homes, the film and its sequel, “Hocus Pocus 2,” will also be accessible for streaming on Disney+.
Tickets for these special 30th-anniversary screenings can be purchased at AMC theaters.
