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.

Watch the promo from Freeform here:


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:

Over-sharing is a thing. Sometimes, people really just cross the line in the information they've decided to volunteer to us.

It's hard to control who does this to us since it tends to take us by surprise, but hearing some of the things that people have suffered having to hear can easily act as cautionary tales to us.

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
