The Sanderson Sisters will be putting a spell on cinema audiences once more when the spellbinding original Hocus Pocus film returns to the big screen as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of the Disney classic.

While many fans of the franchise are wondering when is Hocus Pocus 3 coming out? others might want to remind themselves what is the story of Hocus Pocus 2 before sitting down to watch the third instalment. Or if you're looking for things to do with the kids this half term then you might want to introduce them to the first Hocus Pocus film.

The 1993 movie starring Academy Award-winning Bette Midler, Primetime Emmy Award-winner Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex And The City), and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act) is heading back to cinemas for a limited time only.

You’re in for a devil of a time when three outlandishly wild witches, return from 17th-century Salem after they’re accidentally conjured up by some unsuspecting pranksters! It’s a night full of zany fun and comic chaos once the tricky 300-year-old trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth - but first they must outwit three kids and a talking cat! Loaded with bewitching laughs, Hocus Pocus is an outrageously wild comedy that’s sure to entertain everyone.

Doug Davis, CEO of Park Circus, said: “It's become an annual tradition to experience Hocus Pocus on the big screen. This Halloween, we are thrilled to be marking 30 years of the Sanderson Sisters in style with our biggest celebration of this Disney favourite yet at hundreds of cinemas across the UK and beyond.”
