Watch Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Reactions to the ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Trailer
Since Hocus Pocus fans heard a sequel would be dropping on Disney+ on September 30, many have been anticipating a response from the 1993 classic’s legendary cast members. Luckily, Disney came through on the request, as the production company captured Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker‘s genuine reactions to seeing the Hocus Pocus 2 trailer for the first time.
In late June, the three actresses came together to get a first glimpse at their new film in front of cameras. As they all gathered in front of a laptop, the trio was thrilled to see the Sanderson sisters onscreen for the first time in almost three decades. But before they could get into the magic of the movie, they first had to figure out which sister was which.
“Is that them, or is that us?” Sarah asked her co-stars. “That’s you, I thought. It sounded like you.”
After the characters were sorted out, the cast watched actual footage from the movie. Bette was certainly sucked into all the special effects shown throughout, as she (like the rest of us) exclaimed, “That looks fabulous!”
We can’t be the only ones highly amused by their antics throughout this video. After all, they made the sequel — they should know what happens in it! Nonetheless, the group cackled like witches throughout the rest of the clip.
“‘Some legends never die’ … I LOVE that,” Bette said, summing up how the cast felt about seeing their hard work paying off. “Very nice! I think it looks great!”
We agree with the sentiment completely. Fans did too, as they headed to the comments section to share how much they loved seeing the women behind the Sanderson sisters enjoying themselves.
“The way they laugh at their own witchy cackles makes me cackle along with them. I LOVE IT!!” one fan commented on YouTube. “Just what I needed to see, my three favorite witches!” another wrote in part. “I will only say this once, No one can replace these three beautiful, amazing actresses for this movie,” a different fan proclaimed.
If this doesn’t get folks excited for Hocus Pocus 2, it’s hard to say what else will.
