Hocus Pocus, the cult classic Halloween film, is getting a sequel.
Director Adam Shankman, perhaps best known as the director of Hairspray (2007) and Step Up, shared the news to his Instagram on Wednesday.
Looks like Il[sic] be working on a looooooottttt of magic for awhile... I feel incredibly honored and humbled to be guiding forward these two Disney crown jewel legacies. My only hope is to honor those who came before me and build something new and exciting, as I desperately try to not let down the fans and enchant the new initiates!
The original Hocus Pocus was released in 1993 and starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the three witches. Apparently rumors of a sequel have been floating around for years and in 2014, Midler stated that she, Parker and Najimy would all be interested in doing a sequel.
The movie will apparently be a Disney+ exclusive.
