The Cast Of ‘Hocus Pocus’ Then And Now Will Bring You Memories


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?

We've seen them flourish with long careers in movies, television, and theatre.
