'Hocus Pocus' stars reunite for call to get out the vote

The cast of the Halloween cult hit "Hocus Pocus" is reuniting in the hopes of putting a spell on voters to head to the polls.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy came together on Monday for a video encouraging Americans to vote on or before Nov. 3. The actresses played a trio of witches in the spooky 1993 comedy.

"Get these voters to the polls," Midler said, as she led Parker and Najimy in a spell similar to one the coven chanted in the movie. "Make them vote!" the performers exclaimed.

"There's nothing more important than your right to vote," said Midler, one of President Trump's most vocal Hollywood critics.

"It's a very big deal, this election, obviously," Parker, a prominent Democratic donor, said during the brief chat with her former co-stars.

"Because so many young people felt disenfranchised in the last election for whatever reason, my fervent hope is that those that sat out will decide that even if a candidate can't get them to the exact destination point, [voting in 2020 is] the opportunity to get so much closer to where this country needs to be," Parker said.
