Maybe you've watched it every Halloween since you were a kid, and maybe you can mouth along with the dialogue. But the things you never knew about Hocus Pocus might just force you to admit that you're not the planet's number one authority on the classic Bette Midler movie. With such a huge cast, it's natural that there is a lot to discuss. Some of the cast either popped up in unexpected places following the movie (in a nutshell: country music, Will & Grace, a shamanism class) while other members of the cast only scored their parts because certain other huge A list actors declined their roles. But possibly one of the most fascinating aspects of the movie is how engaged its cast still appear to be by the film.
Everyone from Thora Birch to James Marsden have spoken with great affection about their time making the film, and some of the cast seem to have delved even further into either their own links with witchcraft or witchcraft itself in their post-Pocus lives. And how could you blame them? After such a magical movie making experience complete with a suitably banging soundtrack, it would be hard to resist the pull of witchcraft. So, brush up on these Hocus Pocus facts and impress your friends at parties. There's no such thing as loving this film too much.
