The ladies of Riverdale banded together for their assault on the iconic witches of Hocus Pocus for Halloween. Lily Reinhart, Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch were spotted heading to a spooky shindig in West Hollywood on Saturday, October 29 dressed as famous Disney characters Sarah, Mary and Winifred Sanderson, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and Bette Midler in the 1993 comedy.
With the movie’s fans in a frenzy over the sequel, Hocus Pocus 2, which releases earlier this month, the actresses seem to have chosen quite the relevant costume choice. And they nailed it! Lili wore a pink corset and velvet mini skirt, Camila donned a brown lace corset top and Madelaine brought up the rear in a neon green bodysuit and hood.
On October 1, Disney + released the long-awaited sequel Hocus Pocus 2, giving SJP, Bette and Kathy a chance to reprise their iconic roles. This time the Sanderson sisters find themselves in 2022 Salem after two young girls, Becca and Izzy, accidentally light the Black Flame candle and revive the witches. The movie became the streaming giant’s biggest movie debut ever.
Meantime, Whitney Peakwho plays Becca in the new reboot, spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Hollywood life about the possibility of a third movie. “I mean, I would be down. But I don’t know if there is. I feel like everyone keeps asking me and I think there’s kind of a post-credits scene that leaves the door open, but you haven’t heard from me,” the Gossip girl alum joked.
Whitney also loved working with the trio of OG witches. “They are so good at what they do,” she noted. “I mean, it’s hard to see them as just their individual selves. Sarah Jessica and Bette and Kathy, it’s hard to see them when they have the costumes and not be intimidated by them.”
She added, “It was really, really cool to see them act and be in character and just in and out of it. It was just really admirable.”
