It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus!
You’re in for a devil of a time when three outlandishly wild witches – Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy return from 17th-century Salem after they’re accidentally conjured up by some unsuspecting pranksters! It’s a night full of zany fun and comic chaos once the tricky 300-year-old trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth – but first, they must get their act together and outwit three kids and a talking cat!

Did you know?
- During a February 10, 2008, interview on the BBC show “Breakfast”, Bette Midler stated that this was her favorite of all of her films.
- Sarah Jessica Parker has said that she found being in the flying broom harness so comfortable that, instead of being lowered back to the ground during the extended downtime between certain takes, she would stash a copy of The New York Times on her person to read while remaining suspended in the air.
- During a 20th anniversary screening of this film, Doug Jones revealed the moths that come out of his mouth at the end are real, not CGI.
- Sarah Jessica Parker plays a witch who was executed during the Salem Witch Trials. While researching her family history for the show Who Do You Think You Are? (2004), Parker was shocked to discover that her 10th great-grandmother, Esther Elwell, was arrested in Salem, MA in the late 1600s for committing “sundry acts of witchcraft” and choking a neighbor to death. Esther’s case never went to court, she escaped with her life and the accusation ended the Salem Witch Trials. Parker said, “It has changed everything about who I thought I was.”
