Disney classic Hocus Pocus will not be getting a sequel, it has been announced.

The 1993 Halloween-themed movie starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as witches who terrorised the children of Salem will not be returning in a new sequel, we're rather sad to report.

Earlier this week we reported on whispers of a sequel coming from Moviehole.

The Kenny Ortega-directed film has developed a cult following and this week's rumours over a sequel called 'Hocus Pocus 2: Rise Of The Elderwitch' were met with huge enthusiasm.

Unfortunately, Disney has now addressed the sequel claims in a statement to The Huffington Post, confirming they are untrue.

A spokesman said: "The studio is not developing a sequel to Hocus Pocus."

The cast of the original Hocus Pocus featured a young Thora Birch and Omri Katz in addition to Parker, Midler and Najimy.

We're gutted!
