This year marks the 25th anniversary of Hocus Pocus. There will be a reunion with the cast and fans of Hocus Pocus will get to film a special event and much more at the iconic Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
Fans of Hocus Pocus —Winifred has put a spell on you. Here is a one-shot opportunity for you to go meet the cast of Hocus Pocus.
Freeform is filming this special event for the 25th anniversary. Director Kenny Ortega will be also present. The movie was released in 1993 and ’til this day, it’s become more popular due to it airing on Freeform every year.
The anniversary will be filmed on location at the iconic Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd. Make sure you arrive there at 6 p.m. local time. They will be filming until 10 p.m. The minimum age to attend the event is 18.
If you’re looking for a sequel for the movie, unfortunately, it’s not happening. In September 2017, it was reported that Disney was rebooting the iconic TV movie without its original cast. None of the original cast members were asked to reprise their roles. Ortega isn’t involved in this either. It upsets me as all the cast members want a sequel. No one asked for a reboot.
For movies that we don’t ask for a sequel, the networks have no problem greenlighting one. But when it comes to us actually wanting further installments for movies, that doesn’t happen. Ironic, isn’t it?
In regards to how to obtain tickets to film the anniversary event, On-Cameras-Audiences has provided the information below:
