Hocus Pocus is the greatest Halloween movie ever made (possibly the greatest movie ever made ... period?), and with a full Moon and the end of daylight saving time on All Hallow's Eve this year, it's the flawless time to celebrate the iconic film and even have a little Sanderson sister reunion. A follow-up film was finally announced previous year, and though original cast members Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker have said they're interested, there hasn't been an official announcement confirming that they're on board. Bette Midler revealed a first look at her "Hocus Pocus" cast reunion with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in head-to-toe costume. All proceeds from the event, and its accompanying Sanderson Sisters Charm School, will go towards funding the organization's "critical work in the environmental and social justice space", per the event's official press release.

Hocus Pocus was released in1993 and the comedy followed the Sanderson sisters who come back from the dead to terrorize Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween.

In a new picture posted to Midler's Instagram, the Sanderson sisters can be seen with towering hairdos and vibrant dresses.

In honour of benefitting the New York Restoration Project, all three of the soul-draining sisters will be back for one spooktacular special. The event will also be virtual this year because of the ongoing pandemic.

The movie was directed by Kenny Ortega and has become something of a cult classic especially around Halloween.
