Hocus Pocus stars reunite, casting a spell to boost voter turnout

The three witches played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are using their magic for good

Back in 2017, witches around the world united to cast a mass “binding” spell on Donald Trump, with the ideal outcome being that he was “eventually removed from the presidency, impeached, or resigns” (Lana Del Rey even implied she was getting involved). Obviously, that didn’t do the trick though, and the effort has now shifted to making sure he doesn’t win a second term in the upcoming election.

In that respect, fictional witches are also playing their part. In a video shared to Instagram yesterday (October 26), Bette Midler reunited with the rest of the Sanderson sisters (aka Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy) from 1993’s Hocus Pocus.

In collaboration with the public awareness campaign I am a Voter, the trio deliver a PSA about voting early – something more than three million young people have already done – and talk about the importance of the right to vote. 

However, they also find time to use their magic for good, casting a quick spell to increase voter turnout.

This week, Midler also suggested that she will reunite with Parker and Najimy for a sequel to Hocus Pocus currently in development at Disney. “They want to make a movie, they’ve asked us if we were interested and of course all of us said yes,” she told Fox 5 in an interview. “I’m game, I’m totally game.”
