The Sanderson sisters are making a comeback!
On Sunday, Bette Midler, who played the role of Winifred Sanderson on the cult classic film Hocus Pocus, shared a first look photo of the upcoming reunion with Hocus Pocus costars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy. The reunion is set to take place on Oct. 30 for her annual Hulaween fundraising gala.
The photo shows the iconic trio reunited and all smiles while standing on a blue screen set. They’re dressed in their classic witch costumes from the 1993 film. “Your 3 fav witches – @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy & ME – are returning for 1 night only on 10/30 at 8p ET! ‘In Search of the Sanderson Sisters’ is the best thing to happen to #Halloween since Hocus Pocus + Reeses Pieces. Get your tix now (link in bio) and support @NYRP #nyrphulaween,” Midler captioned the post.
The virtual event is titled In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover and will benefit the New York Restoration Project by raising funds for their environmental and social justice causes. Midler is the founder of the group which was established in 1995.
Fans can pick up Hocus Pocus merch ahead of the event including tote bags, T-shirts, and even a dead man’s toe-scented candle to help support. To attend the actual event, virtual tickets are being sold for $10 and are available now, with proceeds supporting NYPR’s “dedication to creating more green space for underserved communities to grow their own food, connect, and access safe spaces directly in their neighborhood.”
