The Sanderson Sisters performed their first live show on Tuesday during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and thanks to the ~magic~ of the internet, someone got a front-row seat and recorded the entire show. So, if you're not going to be able to make the Spelltacular this season — performances run on select nights through Nov. 1 — watching this video is the next best thing.
When the Sanderson Sisters return to our world for one night, they decide to
chase after three kids and a cat throw an evil Halloween shindig, featuring some of your favorite Disney villains!
Wait, things are about to get even better! Jason Marsden, who was the original voice of Thackery Binx (in cat form), recorded dialogue for Binx, which plays at the beginning and end of the show! Marsden uploaded a video of himself recording the dialogue, and it's so surreal to hear Binx's voice not coming out of a sassy black cat.
Kenny Ortega, the director of "Hocus Pocus," shared a photo from the stage show on Instagram, with a heartwarming message.
"I am beyond excited and grateful that #HocusPocus continues to be a fan fave the world over. A live Hocus Pocus Show opened @waltdisneyworld for Halloween. After more than than 20 years, #thesandersonsisters continue to brew it up! A shout out to my witches @BetteMidler @KathyNajimy @SarahJessicaParker Thank you Cast, Crew, Fans and #Disney #Winifred- "You know, I've always wanted a child. And now I think I'll have one... on toast!"
The Walt Disney World Instagram page posted this pic on Wednesday (Sept. 16), with the caption, "Hope you had a wicked good time tonight at opening night for Mickey's #NotSoScary Halloween Party!"
