Hey, ’90s people! It’s time for a real flashback – get ready with some tissues and hop on board to remind yourself of a cast of a dear movie you adored. Hocus Pocus is a 1993 American comedy horror fantasy film which follows the villainous trio of witches, who are resurrected by a teenaged virgin male in Salem, Massachusetts. The film, which was based on a story by Garris and David Kirschner, was Disney’s perfect way of showing off with some spooky things. It’s that time of the year. Pumpkins and falling leaves are here already, and it’s been almost 25 years since Disney graced us with Hocus Pocus, so it’s time to take a look at how far our favorite witches have come.
You may have seen them on the screen occasionally, but what are they up to now?
1. Winifred — Bette Midler
Bette Midler has made a huge name for herself, even before the Hocus Pocus fever. Besides acting, she is also a singer, songwriter, and a producer.
Currently, she is a leading lady on broadway! Midler is currently appearing on Broadway in a revival of Hello, Dolly!, for which she recently received the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

2. Mary — Kathy Najimy
Najimy was most known for her voice as Peggy in King of the Hill.
Also, it seems like she is stuck with Disney! Najimy appeared in Disney’s Descendants in 2015 as the Evil Queen. Moreover, she even referenced her Hocus Pocus character in the movie!

3. Sarah — Sarah Jessica Parker
Sex and the City definitely changed her life in 1998, as she became everyone’s favorite writer. She’s also starred in several movies, and is well known in the world of fashion.
You can still catch her on HBO, as she currently stars in the comedy Divorce.

A few years after Hocus Pocus, Birch made the transition into her mature role for American Beauty, and some other films.

5. Billy Butcherson — Doug Jones
Although you may not recognize him, he remained in the acting world, with roles in Teen Wolf and The Strain.
Interestingly, he recently caught up with the Hocus Pocus makeup effects supervisor! The reunion with Tony Gardner happened at the movie’s 20 Year Reunion in 2013.
That’s a huge difference! It’s been a long time since the movie has come out, but they all seem to be doing just fine.
