A New Hocus Pocus Movie Is Happening—Here’s Everything We Know

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Every fall we get into the spooky Halloween spirit by rewatching the most iconic movies like The Shining, Scream, and, of course, Hocus Pocus. The film, surprisingly, was a flop at the box office when it was first released, but has since become a cult favorite.

The film centers around the Sanderson sisters whom a bunch of kids accidentally resurrect and then must stop from becoming immortal.

The classic 1993 Halloween movie Hocus Pocus has a sequel in the works. The movie is in the works for Disney+, the new streaming platform launching on November 12 that will also stream Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel movies. It will cost $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year.

Though many details haven’t been revealed yet, we do know that Jen D’Angelo is writing the script. The original cast including Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy are not officially contracted, but Entertainment Weekly reported that Disney is hoping to get them involved.  “I don’t think any of us who were making it at the time thought Hocus Pocus would have such a long life,” Parker told the magazine last year. “People tell me all the time they grew up watching it, and that they still watch it. I think it’s wonderful.”
