Her flick “Hocus Pocus” is one of the more popular Halloween cult classics of all time, and now Bette Midler admits it is one of her holiday favorites.
On Thursday (October 31), the wicked witch Winifred Sanderson actress stopped by the set of Katie Couric”s talk show to discuss the production of the film that continues to capture children”s attention.
“We laughed the whole time,” Bette explained about her time with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy. “And we flew! We flew! And we got to wear like crazy noses and fake teeth and all those sort of things.”
Midler continued, “I love it. We made it before the tidal wave of Halloween happened. Now it”s like huge. It”s huge – kids, grown-ups, everyone takes part in it. This movie was kind of the beginning of the wave.”
Some of the cast members of the spooky film reunited at an official Disney fan club meeting in Burbank, California earlier this month to celebrate the film”s 20th anniversary.
Although Bette and Sarah were unable to make an appearance to the event, the other sister Kathy along with Thora Birch [Dani Dennison], Ormi Katz [Max Dennison] and Vinessa Shaw [Allison] stopped by.
