Interviewed by People, Bette Midler unbuttons on Hocus Pocus 2, which will be directed by Adam Shankman and also starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.
There are great and good news on Hocus Pocus 2, the highly anticipated sequel to thatHocus Pocus which, despite the not stellar collection in the aftermath of the release especially in the USA, over the years has become a small cult movie. To speak is once again Bette Means, aka the witch Winifred Sanderson. During an interview with People, the actress said: “They brought a draft script to our attention and, after we got it right, because it’s been 27 years, we read it and all three thought it was extraordinary”.
obviously Bette Means she was careful not to reveal the contents of the pages that were submitted to her, a Sarah Jessica Parker it’s at Kathy Najimy, but if you say so Hocus Pocus 2 it’s strong stuff, we believe it without hesitation. The actress then explained that in order to give eagerly awaited fans the best possible product, they are trying to reunite the old team of Hocus Pocus, work team that will not see driving Kenny Ortega ma Adam Shankman.
“We are trying to understand who is still available” – he specified Bette – “who is still working and who might return. Because a lot of the success we had with the film depended on the team that was put together, the people who took care of our flights and equipment, those who took care of the green screen… I don’t think it was called green screen at the time… the people who thought of hairstyles, the make-up artists, all exemplary people, and then the costume designers and the special effects workers “.
Presumably being a fantastic comedy, Hocus Pocus 2, currently tied to Disney +, will necessarily have a first-rate technical department, and if those who made the ’93 gem possible return, the film may have a handcrafted touch and it won’t be all CGI.
