“I envy the other actors who have franchises, and I was hoping to get a sequel to it First Wives ClubBut we never got that. After 30 years without any sequel to hocus pocusI’ve always been envious of people who play their favorite character more than once. The fact that we were finally able to do it, after 30 years of pitching the idea, I’m glad we did. I’d like to have a franchise—especially the character I love to play, “T-Midler Revealed.” If there is a third character, of course I’ll sign up, but I don’t know how. I can’t imagine what the story would be like, but I love Winifred and Sarah and Mary and our relationship. It is good for women. We stick together through hell and high water, but we make a mess, and a lot of women don’t make a lot of mess! “
