'Hocus Pocus 2'?! 'Enchanted 2'?! Whaaaat?!

Wait one minute.  Within minutes of each other, I heard that two movies were getting sequels.  Apparently, someone wants to continue both the story of the Sanderson Sisters and Giselle.  What do you think?

There were rumors late last year that cult classic Hocus Pocus was getting a sequel, but these rumors turned out to be false.  I love me some Hocus Pocus.  It's easily my favorite Halloween movie of all time, because, well, let's be honest.  It's the best Halloween movie there is.  Many of you would agree with me.  

It's being reported that Tina Fey's production company, Little Stranger, is interested in making a sequel.  At this time, it hasn't been confirmed and a cast hasn't been announced.  There is a storyline, however.  It is about "a housewife who is related to the Sanderson Sisters, who teams up with a witch hunger to save her children after they run afoul of some resurrected witches while out trick-or-treating."  Here we go again!  It was also revealed that earlier this year, they were looking for talent "in the same vein as Fey and Melissa McCarthy."  Hmmmm...interesting...

I love Tina Fey, and the news of anything related to Hocus Pocus is exciting.  Buuuuut.  If this turns out to be real, and they cast anyone else other than the original trio, I will boycott the hell out of this.  I bet it will be refuted, but I will gladly be wrong. 

Amy Adams might be returning to one of her brighter performances.  Entertainment Weekly and Deadline are reporting that Disney plans a sequel to the 2007 hit, Enchanted.  Anne Fletcher is set to direct, but the script is being written by the same team that subjected brought us The Smurfs and Shrek 2.  Yeaaaahhh...

There is no word on what the story is, nor is there any inclination as to who will star.  One would assume that Amy Adams would come back as Giselle.  I've always thought that she should have received more awards attention for that role, so they'd be stupid to not cast her again.  EW throws some ideas out there that involve Idina Menzel since she's a much more well-known actress now.  Perhaps Disney is stepping up their female characters game since Frozen's leading ladies were considered a much needed breath of fresh air.  

Gimme Giselle, or nothing!
