The 25th Anniversary of Hocus Pocus is coming up -- and if anyone doesn't feel old yet, we're here to take everyone back to the '90s! Freeform is hosting a Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash, set to air on Saturday, October 20, as a part of the network's month-long "31 Nights of Halloween" event -- which is going to feature a cast reunion! (Bring on the witches!) Like everyone else, we're unimaginably excited about this, even though there seems to be one problem: Bette Midler hasn't been confirmed she's attending yet. But since she's been posting an awful lot about Hocus Pocus ... we're wondering if she'll show up as a surprise! (This wouldn't be a huge surprise to us as she's the queen of stealing the show, after all.)

With so much talk about a Hocus Pocus sequel in the works -- and promo posters floating across the interwebs -- we'd be shocked if the original cast didn't band together for the 25th anniversary. Hearsay or not, nothing can replace the original Disney movie -- and that's a fact we all can agree on.

Just thinking about Hocus Pocus brings up fond childhood memories. There's so much we missed as kids. For instance, did anyone know that Binx, the cat, can actually be seen sitting on his sister Emily's grave at one point? Even better, do folks realize they can visit locations from the film in Salem, Massachusetts?

In honor of our favorite witches, we've put together a fun list of facts and trivia that'll fill fans with Halloween cheer! And if that isn't enough, Hocus Pocus showings are going to be in quite a few theaters nationwide!

The Sanderson Sisters are back, baby!
