Another glorious morning! Twenty-eight years after Hocus Pocus was released, starVinessa Shaw has fondly looked back at her childhood role in the film and even speculated potential sequel ideas.
“I haven’t heard anything,” the Blazing World actress, 45, told Entertainment Tonight on Friday, October 15 of the upcoming Hocus Pocus 2 sequel. “I know, it’s so disappointing to hear. I would love to do the sequel. It would be so much fun. I think there’s just a different storyline with younger people, but why can’t we all come back in some way?”
The original film, directed by Kenny Ortega, followed teenaged Max Omri Katz as he mistakenly awakened the witchy trio when his family moved to Salem, Massachusetts. Following Max’s arrival in town, he was captivated by local Allison, who later became his girlfriend.
The California native also weighed in where she saw Allison’s future heading: “I feel like she and Max are still together, but I think Allison’s from Salem and he always wants to be in California. I think they did some sort of compromise and maybe she’s in Salem when the witches come back, you know, visiting her mom or something.”
Shaw still calls her initial filming experience was a “dream come true.”
“It basically was everything I could have dreamed of in a movie like that and especially I also watched The Wizard of Oz over and over again as like a basically five and 6-year-old,” she told ET. “So this felt like a modern version of The Wizard of Oz for me. It was [one of] my favorite projects I’ve worked on.”
