Hocus Pocus 2 is almost here (you can read our review here), but the Hocus Pocus renaissance isn’t going away anytime soon. The Sanderson sisters are headed to Broadway!
David Kirschner, producer of Hocus Pocus and the upcoming Disney+ sequel revealed the news on Thursday’s episode of Broadway Podcast Network’s The Art of Kindness.
“This started before COVID, but now it seems to be back on, and that is that they are building a Broadway version of Hocus Pocus. I just want to pinch myself, and I’m just afraid that I’m going to be 9 years old and on a Little League field again. But it’s just so wonderful just to stand back and watch all of this.”David Kirschner
Additional details on the broadway adaptation including dates, location, and cast have yet to be revealed. However, Kirschner assures the fans of the franchise will be happy, simply saying, “I think you’re going to be very pleased.”
