'Hocus Pocus' is getting a reboot on Disney+; Marshalls opened last night

Today is Friday, Oct. 25, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Disney+ has announced and launched development of a sequel to a 1993 Halloween favorite: Hocus Pocus.

This is not the first time *Disney has tried to reboot the movie. Two years ago, Disney Channel tried to make a “Hocus Pocus” TV movie featuring a new cast, but the idea never came into fruition.

There is hope that the Disney+ version will bring back Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, the stars of the first movie, but it hasn’t been confirmed.

The original film was not a big success at the box office and only had a $28 million budget. However, it seems that the movie is still a staple and a must watch during Halloween festivities.

Disney+ doesn’t launch until Nov. 12, so if you’re looking to watch the cult classic during spooky season, you will have to find another streaming service that offers it.
