Deadline reports that Disney Channel is producing a remake of Hocus Pocus to become a TV movie.
Since its release in 1993, Hocus Pocus has become a cult-classic, especially among a millennial audience who grew up with the movie’s annual broadcasts on Disney and ABC family (now Freeform).
The upcoming TV movie will be written by Scarlett Lacey (The Royals) and produced by David Krichner, who also produced the original film. Kenny Ortega, who directed the original and has also directed blockbuster Disney Channel TV movies High School Musical and Descendants, will not be involved in the remake.
