Last summer, Disney finally confirmed that they were not only developing a Hocus Pocus prequel via a book, but also a Made-for-TV reimagining of the film. However, this new Hocus Pocus will be done with a new cast, new writers, and a new director.
Bette Midler, who played the original Winifred Sanderson, may not want anything to do with this remake, however Doug Jones would love the opportunity to reprise Billy Butcherson.
When talking with Digital Spy, Doug Jones mentioned being approached for a possible ‘20 years later’ sequel and how much he’d love to reprise his role of Billy.
It’s not off the table…So I’m just going to keep my knees bent and be ready in case they call.
What do you think? Do you like the idea of a reimagining? Would you prefer a sequel or for them to leave Hocus Pocus alone? Make sure to comment and let me know.
