The witches of Disney’s 1993 cult comedy “Hocus Pocus” are making a much-deserved comeback, but don’t expect to see them on screen just yet.

The Sanderson trio of Winifred, Mary and Sarah are joining the list of Disney villains who will haunt Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney World this fall.

“Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” running Sept. 15 through Nov. 1, features appearances by the ever-nefarious Jafar, Maleficent and Cruella de Vil.

With the help of dancers, projections and special effects, the twisted sisters are organizing a night of tricks and fun at the Magic Kingdom.

“Hocus Pocus,” which starred Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, has developed a cult audience in the decades since its release.

Last year, fans even got excited when Tina Fey announced she would produce and star in an untitled witch project for Disney — though she subsequently denied reports that it was a sequel or reboot of “Hocus Pocus.”
