Hocus Pocus stars want a sequel

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy want to reunite for a Hocus Pocus sequel.

All three actresses starred in the 1993 cult film, as three witch sisters.

Bette, 68, who starred as witch Winifred Sanderson in the original movie, said on Reddit that all three actresses want Disney to bring back the film.

"Inundate the Disney company. Because I have canvassed the girls and they are wiling to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a Hocus Pocus 2, ask the Walt Disney company," she told the site.

Asked on Twitter whether she'd like to reprise her role, Sex And The City actress Sarah, 49, responded: "I'm in."

And Sister Act actress Kathy, 57, tweeted: "Hocus people, Bette says it best. Listen to your elders.!"

A rumour spread earlier this year that Disney was developing a sequel to the film, with Tina Fey on board as a producer.

But she later said that she was producing a different film about witches.
