Hollywood is on a remake binge, and many fans think "Hocus Pocus" is ready for some Black Girl Magic in its own star-studded reboot.

A Twitter user named Persephone first cast the spell when tweeting out an Essence cover featuring "Hidden Figures" stars Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, and Janelle Monae. She wants the trio to take on the roles played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1993 horror comedy.

That may have just been a passing thought, but it went viral, and Twitter now needs it to happen:


Bette Midler shot down the idea of a "Hocus Pocus 2," despite hopes for a sequel to the Disney film, so maybe this is the best way to cover both worlds -- return to the Halloween fave while making it fresh with a new cast? Disney has yet to weigh in, but considering how much they love live-action remakes and other nostalgia, they may want to at least consider it.
