Original 'Hocus Pocus' Stars Return For 25-Year Celebration To Run Amok On Freeform

popular

Hocus Pocus, the 1993 Disney movie which follows the antics of three villainous witches brought back to life in Salem, Massachusetts, cemented its reputation as a beloved cult-classic over the last decade or so.

It became so fondly-remembered, in fact, that the cable television channel Freeform just announced it will be hosting a celebration on Saturday, October 20th, to commemorate the movie's 25th anniversary!

And you'll never guess who will be dropping in...


E! News reports the anniversary celebration will show interviews with stars "Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Omri Katz, Thora Birch, Doug Jones, Amanda Shepherd, Larry Bagby, Jason Marsden and Tobias Jelinek, as well as director Kenny Ortega, writers Mick Garris and David Kirschner, choreographer Peggy Holmes and composer John Debney."

It looks like pretty much everyone is coming back!


As if that weren't enough, Sharon Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne will be judging a Hocus Pocus costume contest while Drag queen Lady Bunny acts as DJ and fans await a possible appearance by Bette Midler herself.



Just before the special event, Freeform will be airing a special "Pop'n Knowledge" edition of the film, which features "trivia, observations and commentary" around important moments.

This is all working up to Halloween, October 31, when Freeform will be showing a non-stop marathon of the movie, though by that point we might be all Hocus Pocus'd out.

Fans are counting the nights until the Halloween-themed bash!






Of course, if you're a true fan, you might want to start watching Hocus Pocus before the Halloween rush!



Why wait‽

Let's all start watching the movie non-stop right now. We only need one break and that's to watch the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary special on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 8:15 p.m. on Freeform.

Other than that, this is our life for the next month:
