In an interview with People, Bette Midler dishes about the highly anticipated ‘Hocus Pocus 2’.
Midler tells People Magazine that,
“They presented us with an outline, and after we picked ourselves up off the floor, because it’s been 27 years, we looked at it and I think all of us agreed that it was pretty great,”
We know that Hocus Pocus 2 has been in the early stages of development. It has named Adam Shankman as the director attached to the film. And we may have an early glimpse at what the story could be from a novel written about the events after the first movie. Read all about what we know so far about the project here.
Bette Midler goes on to say this about the movies pre-productions stage in her interview:
We’re trying to see who’s available and who’s still out there and still working and who can come back,” Midler says. “Because, a lot of the success of what we did on that picture had to do with the team that was surrounded, had to do with the team that they assembled to make that picture, the people who did the flying and the rigging, the people who did the green screens, the people who did the … I don’t think they called it the green screen in those days. The people who did the hair and makeup, which were all exemplary, the costumers, and the special effects people.”
Recently, the Sanderson Sisters reunited for Midler’s annual Hulaween event — held virtually this year — and even John Stamos joined in the fun.
It is great to hear that they are truly trying to not only bring back the stars of the film, but also the team that made the movie such a success.
