Bette Midler has revealed that she - along with co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimi - would like to star in 'Hocus Pocus 2', but Disney are yet to agree to make a sequel
Bette Midler says the original 'Hocus Pocus' cast is on-board for a sequel.
The 68-year-old actress starred in the 1993 movie along with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimi, and claims the cast have badgered Disney to create a sequel but to no avail so far.
Suggesting that she had already approached the company about the idea, she said: "You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney Company. The ball is in their court."
The star played witch Winifred 'Winnie' Sanderson in the Halloween-themed movie and expressed her hope that fans will campaign for the cast to reunite for another film.
In a Reddit AMA interview, she said: "Inundate the Disney Company, because I have canvassed the girls [Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimi] and they are willing to do it, but we have no say in it, so if you want a 'Hocus Pocus 2', ask the Walt Disney Company."
The actress has previously revealed that her role in the film is one of the things she is most proud of in her entire career, telling E! News: "I actually think it's the best thing I ever did
"I mean I've done a lot of stuff. I've done a lot in my life. I'm very proud of certain roles that I've played."
In July, movie news website Deadline quashed rumours that Tina Fey would be starring in a sequel to the cult movie, after being announced for a project currently named 'Untitled Witch Project' which was confirmed to be unrelated to the classic film.
