Sisters, prepare for a possible third film!
Stars from the original 1993 classic “Hocus Pocus” revealed Saturday that they would be interested in returning for a third installment of the witchy franchise, Entertainment Weekly exclusively reported.
Stars Vinessa Shaw, Omri Katz and Jason Marsden said that would be interested in reprising their roles of Allison, Max and Binx the cast if Disney were to green-light another sequel.
“It’s such a fun story, and obviously having us reminisce about this makes it that much more fun and the fondness keeps growing,” said Shaw.
Katz — who also recently revealed that he had been high while filming his scenes — said that he would be “100 percent down to do it,” with Marsden adding that if the opportunity arose, he’d “absolutely” do it.
The Sanderson Sisters themselves have also voiced their excitement about doing a third film.
“”I’m envious of other actors who have franchises, and I was hoping for a sequel to ‘First Wives Club,’ but we never got that,” said Bette Milder.
“After 30 years with no sequel to ‘Hocus Pocus’, I’ve always been envious of people who get to do their favorite character more than once.”
“The fact that we got to do this finally, after 30 years of promoting the idea, I’m glad we got to do it. I’d love to have a franchise — especially a character I love playing.”
Both Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy have also voiced approval for a trilogy.
Warning: spoilers for “Hocus Pocus 2” ahead.
The ending of the most recent installment of the film certainly leaves room for a sequel.
In a post-credit scene, there is a tease of a second black flame candle that could be used to revitalize the wicked sisters.
The post has reached out to Katz and Shaw for comment.
There is no official word if the series is getting a third film yet.
“Who’s to say there has to be continuity in terms of the story? You can create any story. If they were to take the book and turn it into a screenplay, it doesn’t have to be the witches coming back,” said Katz.
“They can just do whatever they want, and people will be stoked to see it regardless.”
“The witches are 30 years older, so we’ve got to get this done sooner than later. We can’t wait another 30 years. Sorry, it’s the truth! I’m sure Bette does not want to be doing this at age 98.”
