You may have seen the rumors circulating so lets set the record straight.

Over the past 10 years, Hocus Pocus has achieved an unheard of cult status due to 90's kids wanting to reclaim their childhood and remind themselves of a time that life wasn't soul-crushing. Because of the movie's popularity, there have been sequel rumors year after year.

Just this morning, I saw this circulating on Facebook as fact:

While that might seem legit, it's very much fan-made. So what's going on with a Hocus Pocus sequel?

Disney has been wanting to do one for awhile, either as a regular release or Disney Channel film, but they haven't been able to make it happen. The main cast of witches would be on-board for a proper sequel, but Bette Midler said she wouldn't be involved with the project if it were a proposed reboot of the film.

The latest news about anything Hocus Pocus was from Halloween of last year, so while it is fun to speculate and hope, Hocus Pocus 2 isn't happening for the time being.

Virgins, feel free to light the black-flame candle and see if you can't change that though!
