The original script for “Hocus Pocus 2” included the character of Thora Birch: this is how she was going to be included

Hocus Pocus 2 dropped on Disney+ this weekend, and all of us ghouls and goblins rejoiced!

The new movie reunited us with our favorite trio of creepy siblings, the Sanderson sisters (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker).

And it also introduced us to some new faces.

But while the film brings back the aforementioned trio and Doug Jones as everyone’s favorite zombie, Billy Butcherson, the rest of the original film’s cast Hocus Pocus they are sadly absent from the story.

But it wasn’t supposed to be like that!

The film’s director, Anne Fletcher, explained to Entertainment Weekly that they tried to fit in all of our old favorites, like Max (Omri Katz), Allison (Vinessa Shaw), Dani (Thora Birch), and, of course, the iconic thugs Jay and Ice (Tobias Jelinek and Larry Bagby).

“We wanted to weave in all the people that the fans loved,” Fletcher said, “and when you sat down with all the ingredients and the story, you were like, ‘How do we make this work?’”

In a recent interview with ewthe three young actors who star alongside the Sanderson sisters (Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo and Lilia Buckingham), discussed an early version of the script in which Thora Birch’s character, Dani, played a central role.

“She was going to be our school teacher,” Escobedo revealed. “I remember talking to Anne about her being our teacher, and we went to her for help.”

But unfortunately she “was working on something else when they were filming. Otherwise, she would definitely be there on set with the girls.”

Thora added that the first film “has such a special place in my heart.”

What, the same girl! And I think this sequel was a very solid follow-up to this creepy classic, even if we did miss out on some of our original cast.
