Hocus Pocus and all of the Halloweentown movies are my favorites. I watch them all every Halloween without fail unless I’m too busy and then I still cram in Hocus Pocus, it just isn’t Halloween without those three witches. :]
Those three generations of Cromwell women, Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag, and Kimberly Brown are once again fighting some evil forces that are trying to keep the world of Halloween away from the human world. This time it's a world exchange program that's at stake.
Young Kimberly Brown has the bright idea to have some Halloweentown kids come to the human world incognito as humans, the better not to instantly shock people to foster greater understanding. Of course the powers that be in Halloweentown remembering their experiences with humankind before are very skeptical.
But Kimberly believes so much in the project that she bets the family magic powers on it. The bet comes due appropriately on Halloween.
The Magic Kingdom has developed its own nice little franchise in the Halloweentown movies to go along with the various incarnations of High School Musical. Debbie Reynolds and the rest of the cast are as enjoyable as they were in the first Halloweentown film. And if the school looks familiar Zac Efron and company sung and danced there. And Lucas Grabeel of the High School Musical films is also part of this cast as one of the Halloweentown transfer kids.
Halloweentown High is good viewing during goblin season.
Kim: I would always be open to considering another Halloweentown movie…I guess you could continue the adventures of Marnie in college, but who knows? There are lots of possibilities!
Adam: Did you know that the Halloweentown movie series is a seasonal favorite of most people? I have a small group of films I watch every September/October and the Halloweentown series is definitely counted among them. Halloween, Scream, the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Hocus Pocus etc.
