How old are Sanderson Sisters actors in Hocus Pocus 2?
Almost 30 years after the original, Hocus Pocus 2 arrived on Disney+ on Friday and features the original Sanderson sisters.
The 2022 film features all three witches from the 1990s film, as well as the famous zombie Billy Butcherson, played by Doug Jones.
There are also new cast members, including Gossip Girl’s Whitney Peak, who plays Becca, and American Horror Stories actress Belissa Escobedo, who plays Izzy.
In Hocus Pocus 2, three women accidentally bring the Sanderson sisters back to modern Salem and must figure out how to stop the witch from wreaking havoc.
Fans are delighted to have the original Sanderson sisters back, but how old are they in 2022? Read on to find out…
How old are the Sanderson Sisters actors?
At the time of this writing after the release of Hocus Pocus 2, Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Sarah Sanderson, was 57 years old.
Better Midler, who plays Winifred Sanderson, is 76 years old in 2022, and Kathy Najimy, who plays Mary Sanderson, is 65.
All three reprise their roles as the three witches in Hocus Pocus 2 after starring in the original film, which came out almost three decades ago.
Here’s how old they were in the first movie
When the original film was released in October 1993, Sarah Jessica Parker was 28, Better Midler was 47, and Kathy Najimy was 36.
At the film’s premiere in New York, Sarah revealed that she never thought a sequel would actually happen.
“To be completely honest, for the last 28 years I haven’t thought much about the sequel,” she said. “I was not involved in the talks. When I found out it was going to happen, I was shocked.”
The Footloose actress added that Bette was the one who “imagined this idea for years and thought it was all going to happen,” and said she “couldn’t let the idea go away.”
“I admire her a lot for believing and fighting to continue. The lesson is, listen to Divine Miss M. She knows what works and how to do it,” she continued.
Better Midler was always up for a sequel
It was about 10 years after the first Hocus Pocus movie was released that Bette began to notice the popularity of movie merchandise, as she revealed on the same red carpet.
“As the years went by, the idea of rediscovering the film kind of snowballed. So many people have come up to me and said they grew up watching the movie,” said the Beaches star.
“And the amount of Hocus Pocus costumes and merchandise I saw was shocking. I went online and even bought myself a Winifred costume to do it.’
The actress then began calling the studio, but said she was “not interested” in making another film for “a few years.”
“It wasn’t until three years ago that the movement took off and got into the hands of a streamer. It was the most unexpected and rewarding role of my career. It just keeps going.”
Hocus Pocus and Hocus Pocus 2 are now available to watch on Disney+.
