One of my all time favorite Halloween movies is Hocus Pocus. I remember watching this when I was a little girl and I have now shared it with my young daughters. They love it just as much as I did – especially Binx. Recently I came across a “Binx Is My Spirit Animal” shirt at the Disney Store and I so need it. This is a must see Halloween movie that truly stands up against the test of time. I feel so old realizing that it first came out 25 years ago. WOW! The anniversary edition is now available on blu-ray with some amazing bonus features.
About Hocus Pocus
One quarter of a century ago, three 17th century witches – Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker), and Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy) – brewed the perfect magical movie for the whole family: Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action comedy/adventure “Hocus Pocus.” Personally I feel that this is must see family Halloween movie. My girls are 5 and 7 and just love it. It might be a tad scary for young ones, but I think any kid over 5 should be fine.
In celebration of the film’s silver anniversary, “Hocus Pocus” is being re-released to home audiences with a spellbinding new way to experience the film: the Trivia and Treats Edition. On Sept. 2, fans can watch it instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and bring it home on Blu-ray.
Who doesn’t love a good collection of bonus features? I know I do! Especially deleted scenes, which we get on the blu-ray of Hocus Pocus. These features make one of my favorite movies even better!
