First released in July 1993, the film initially failed to impress critics and didn’t do as well as was hoped at the box office.

However in the years that followed its army of fans and followers has grown with its increasing popularity also proving to be added motivation for the making of sequel Hocus Pocus 2, which came out in 2022.

Doug Davis, CEO of Park Circus – the company behind the re-release - said: “This Halloween, we are thrilled to be marking 30 years of the Sanderson Sisters in style with our biggest celebration of this Disney favourite yet at hundreds of cinemas across the UK and beyond.”
