The Sanderson sisters will be conjured once again this Halloween: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are set to reunite for a “Hocus Pocus” virtual event. The trio will reunite for “In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover” on October 30, as part of Midler’s annual Hulaween festivities to benefit her environmental nonprofit organization, the New York Restoration Project.

Tickets for the event—dubbed “the hottest pandemic-safe Halloween event of the year”—are $10 each, and proceeds will benefit Midler’s organization. To reserve a spot for the one-hour long virtual Halloween event, just purchase a ticket and enter an email address to receive a personalized access link, as well as more early-access information ahead of the virtual festivities. 

In the meantime, “Hocus Pocus” fans could also purchase limited-edition film merch on the New York Restoration Project’s website. A “Hocus Pocus”-themed black flamed candles with tapers ($40), dead man’s toes candle ($45), skull spoons in a set of four ($25), and Life Potion scroll from the Sanderson sisters’ Spell Book ($10) are some of the bewitching home products. 

The virtual reunion comes after news that a “Hocus Pocus” sequel is in the works at Disney+. While none of the original cast has signed on for the Adam Shankman-directed adaptation, it’s still very possible that Midler, Parker, and Najimy could reprise their iconic roles in some capacity. (Midler, for her part, has expressed a desire to join the sequel, telling Entertainment Tonight in 2019, “I hope we get to do it,” while Najimy said, “I think it would be so great to do a cameo.”) 

Since the sequel and the virtual Hulaween reunion are a stone’s throw away, fans can stream “Hocus Pocus” in all its original glory on Disney+ in the meantime. The beloved 1993 Kenny Ortega-directed film also haunts Freeform’s annual 31 Nights of Halloween lineup with repeated airs this October.
