Disney Showcases ‘Hocus Pocus’ Props From the Disney Archives at the El Capitan Theatre

The Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus


The Sanderson Sisters have never been more popular than they are right now. With Halloween right around the corner, Disney is dusting off some of the props from Hocus Pocus for some fantastic archival photos that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the film.

Disney is also displaying some of the original props at the El Capitan Theatre beginning today.

On D23, you can see some fantastic photos of props like the Sanderson Sisters’ dresses, the cauldron, brooms and of course, Winnifred Sanderson’s beloved spell book.

Three variations of Winifred’s iconic spell book were created: two practical books—eye open and eye closed—and one book with a moveable eye manipulated via remote control. Details on the book include human fingers on the spine, six metal serpents adorning the front and back, a claw closure clasp, and stitching.
