Bette Midler Dresses Up As Hocus Pocus Character, Pleases The World

Something amazing has happened. It seems the planets have aligned and Hocus Pocus fanatics get to see Bette Midler dressed up again as her classic character Winifred. Midler sported the full throwback costume at the annual Hulaween Party on Friday (October 28) at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Midler (and let's be honest, the rest of the world) has been pushing hard for a Hocus Pocus sequel. We want it. They want. Everyone wants it. So naturally, for a Halloween party, Midler made quite the statement.

You can see the full set of photos of here.

As for a sequel? Midler told Billboard that she wants it, bad:

For the life of me, I can’t understand why there’s not a sequel.

Midler also added how much fun the original production was and a sequel could be even better:

You don’t get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we’re having a blast…All the shackles were off…and we were allowed to be as wild as we wanted to be. It was a perfect storm of fun.


Keep those fingers crossed! Because this could be the first step towards a sequel to one of the best Halloween family films ever.
