Bette Midler, who memorably played Winifred Sanderson in “Hocus Pocus,” revealed she’ll be joining her on-screen sisters for Freeform’s star-studded anniversary special. The announcement was made in a short video on Freeform’s YouTube channel:

Midler, in her signature Winifred voice, says “Wait! Wait a minute! What’s a Sanderson Sister celebration without Winifred?”

We were already excited to celebrate “Hocus Pocus,” but this news has cast a whole new spell over the occasion. Catch the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Bash on Saturday, October 20 at 8:15 PM/7:15c on Freeform.
