I have to admit I’ve only seen “Hocus Pocus” in bits and pieces. Although it stars Bette Midler, you’d think it would appeal to gay men, but it seemed to be made exclusively for kids. Still, I love the combination of Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy and now it looks like they’re being considered to reunite in “Hocus Pocus 2” for Disney+.
One great thing about this new streaming landscape is that projects once considered too niche are valuable properties because they do have devoted and sometimes fervent followings. So I say bring everything back. But better this time.
