The Sanderson sisters first graced us with their presence in 1993 when Hocus Pocus was released. And while the film wasn’t a box office hit back in the day it became a cult movie. Especially when it’s Halloween.
And now, 25 years later the Sanderson sisters are back. In Funko Pop form!
But that’s not all, because Hocus Pocus is also getting a 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray edition. No idea if this edition will have a new image transfer but what’s certain is that it will include several additional features, like a featurette and what appears to be one of those features that tell you facts about the film as you watch it.
Not sure in what shape this blu-ray will arrive to these shores. In the US this blu-ray will get different packaging that will be exclusive to some stores. Apart from the regular blu-ray box there’s going to be a steelbook shaped like the book from the film and another one including a booklet with photos and such.
Hocus Pocus will be out in blu-ray this September. Hopefully this won’t be the last thing Disney will do to celebrate this film. A cinema re-release would be cool.
