Get ready for a gender inclusive “Hocus Pocus,” witches.
In the newest “Billy on the Street,” Billy Eichner headed out with Tiffany Haddish (get out of the way, because her profile is really growing) with the announcement that they will make a more diverse remake of Disney’s Halloween favorite “Hocus Pocus.” He’s gay, she’s black, so they set out to find the third diverse member of their witches trio.
Better yet, call it “#WokusPocus.”
“Yes! A Chinese lesbian witch! Crazy Witch Asians,” Eichner shouted at one New York pedestrian in the video upon learning that she was from China and was also gay.
Eichner asked another woman if she thinks Americans are ready to see a Disney Channel movie classic remade with a diverse cast.
“They ain’t ready, but they better get ready,” the woman replied.
Kenny Ortega directed the 1993 Halloween family movie starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy. People born in the ’90s have decided it’s good.
Eichner’s “Billy on the Street” is back as presented by Lyft Entertainment. He previously hit the streets with Emma Stone in the return of his hit show. Watch the latest segment via his Twitter below.
