Amuck, amuck, amuck! Something wicked this way comes . . . and it looks like a Hocus Pocus sequel. According to Variety, the story behind the beloved Halloween film will continue thanks to Disney+ and writer Jen D'Angelo.

We know fans asked for a sequel to the 1993 film over the past few years, so this news is no trick, just a treat. That said, the sequel is still in early stages, and a plot and cast have yet to be revealed. The original film followed the witchy Sanderson sisters, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.

On Oct. 31, Bette Midler told Entertainment Tonight she hopes to be involved with the sequel project. "We wanna fly again. I hope Disney+ is a big success and I hope we get to do it, because [Winifred] is of course one of my favorite characters." That same day, Parker responded to a fan on Instagram who asked about the sequel. "We have all said yes," Parker replied. "Now we wait."

This sequel news comes shortly after Disney+ dropped an extensive list of Disney Channel original movies coming to the streaming service. Disney+ launches on Nov. 11, and judging by the lineup of content (old and new!) there will be plenty to binge.
