The virtual hulaween benefit “In search of the Sanderson sisters, a takeover of Hocus Pocus Hulaween” took place on Friday. The stars of cult classic Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy repeated their roles (and outfits) for hours at the witch event.
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, the horror hostess portrayed by Cassandra Peterson, takes part in the mockumentary show, which examines the story of the three sisters and answers questions about their origins, education, music careers, fateful love relationships and much more. Castmates Thora Birch, Omri Katz and Doug Jones also attended the reunion.
There were Glenn Close, Billy Crystal, Jamie Lee Curtis, Samantha Diaz, Todrick Hall, Jennifer Hudson, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Michael Kors and his husband Lance LePere, Adam Lambert, George Lopez, Alex Moffat and Vinessa Shaw (who) played Allison in “Hocus Pocus”), Martin Short, Sarah Silverman, John Stamos, Meryl Streep, Kenan Thompson, Sophie von Haselberg, Bella Hadid and Mariah Carey.
The 1993 Halloween classic follows a trio of witches who rose three centuries after being executed by a curious boy named Max (Katz) in Salem, Mass. As the witches try to get used to the 20th century, they find to their horror that Halloween has to be a holiday. Before they can wreak havoc, Max must save his city from falling under the spell of witches.
The virtual benefit started in 2020 with an introduction from Elvira who tried to bring the Sanderson sisters back during quarantine with the help of her talking spell book (Lopez). Meanwhile, she debuts her documentary with adult versions of characters from the film as well as made-up characters like Harry Potter’s “brothers” Garry (Alex Brightman) and Barry Potter (Billy Eichner), discussing her horrific experiences with the three sisters.
From Streep, who calls the sisters “bats,” to the Potters brothers who accuse the Sandersons of finding their way to Hogwarts in a head-to-head battle with the Varsity Blues College admissions scandal, every respondent said they didn’t to be reborn. As Binx the cat (portrayed by Moffat) says, 2020 is already doing badly.
After Elvira enlists the help of Max, who is still a virgin and can light the Black Flame Candle to bring back the witch trio, he summons the Sandersons who are ready to wreak havoc at the behest of the eldest sister Winnie. But when she meets Master Devil, played by Stamos, who takes on the rhetoric of President Donald Trump, she finds out, to her disgust, that she has to do a good deed so that she doesn’t want no earth left to live on pursue and make obsolete.
At the end of the Sanderson perk, Winnie knocks on Carey’s door informing her that Halloween is over, and now it’s her turn when “All I Wanna Do for Christmas Is You” begins to play.
Throughout the tour, viewers were shown clips of the work being done by Midler’s Foundation and encouraged to donate on nypr.org. The virtual benefit, produced by Midler as executive producer and filmed in more than 70 locations, also included icons that encouraged people to vote.
In the past few years, “Hocus Pocus” has cemented its place as the annual must-see in October amid “Halloweentown” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. As a result, the fan favorite has received a sequel that is currently in the works at Disney Plus. Adam Shankman, known for “Hairspray”, “Step Up” and “A Walk to Remember”, is directing the sequel to a script by “Workaholics” writer Jen D’Angelo. It is currently unknown if original cast members will return.
