‘Hocus Pocus’ Actors Give Sneak Peek at Special Reunion Benefiting the New York Restoration Project

3 Min Read

As we previously reported, the Sanderson sisters are breaking out their broomsticks for a good cause, benefiting the New York Restoration Project. The trio are set to reunite during Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween benefit which raises funds for the project every year.

Titled In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover, this year is obviously all about the famed 1993 classic, Hocus Pocus, in which Midler (Winifred Sanderson) stars alongside Sarah Jessica Parker (Sarah Sanderson), and Kathy Najimy (Mary Sanderson). But that’s not all — other key members of the cast including Doug Jones (Billy Butcherson), Omri Katz (Max), and Thora Birch (Dani) will appear alongside star-studded appearances by the host of the event, Elvira, Billy Eichner, Adam Lambert, John Stamos, Samantha Diaz, Jamie Lee Curtis, Meryl Streep, Kenan Thompson, Todrick Hall, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Alex Moffat, Sarah Silverman, and Sophie von Haselberg with more appearances expected to come!

With the event mere weeks away, the cast is beginning to tease the reunion on social media. Check out some of the cast stepping back into their roles below:
