Stop whatever you’re doing and listen up, because your inner child is about to break out into the fiercest tap routine you’ve ever seen.
Why? Because we’re finally getting a sequel to “Hocus Pocus,” the INCREDIBLY underrated Disney movie that probably defined your childhood and changed your life. I mean, the first Halloween costume I remember wearing was Winnie Sanderson, which I rocked in 1995, 1999, and, well, 2007, 2008, and 2009. I also knew every word to “I Put A Spell On You.” Now THAT’S foreshadowing even the Sanderson sisters couldn’t have predicted.
But the best part? The sequel is going to be produced by none other than TINA FEY.
TINA. FUCKING. FEY.
The woman who brought you “that’s so fetch,” the best Sarah Palin impression on Earth, and Alec Baldwin as a sexy, scotch-swilling, suit-wearing sexpot will now give us a sequel to “Hocus Pocus.” Raise your hand if you were ever personally victimized by Sarah Sanderson. Allison, tell Thackery his hair looks sexy pushed back.
“Fey’s production company, Little Stranger, is getting behind the new film, and the mighty Fey herself will be one of the producers of Hocus Pocus 2. At this stage, it’s unclear whether she plans to act in the film as well.”
She might act in it?! Shut. The fuck. Up. I would DIE.
“The sequel will pick up years after the original, focusing on a housewife who is related to the Sanderson sisters, who teams up with a witch hunter to save her children after they run afoul of some resurrected witches while out trick-or-treating.”
CAN SHE BE THE DESCENDANT OF ONE OF THE WITCHES? CAN WE GET BETTE MIDLER BACK? PLEEEEEEASE?
Well, I don’t know about you, but this bitch is pumped. No word on a release date, but here’s something to get you excited.
