Watch: Sarah Jessica Parker Has Only Seen "Hocus Pocus" Once?!

Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown are staples in any October movie marathon, but now, one fan has uncovered something that may suggest the two classics share a cinematic world. 

On TikTok, user @lyssalyssalyssahh spotted something major in a scene from Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge. Towards the end of the film, young witch Sophie (played by Emily Roeske) quickly transforms someone into multiple different characters. As she's flipping through random magical creatures, the TikToker Lyssa noticed that one looked very familiar. 

"Is this, or is this not, Sarah Sanderson's exact outfit?!" the TikToker exclaimed, speaking of the witch played by Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1993 film. "Does this mean that Hocus Pocus and Halloween town exist in the same universe?"

Though this Easter egg may come as a surprise to many fans, it's not the first time someone has picked up on the connection. A 2015 article from Recycle Movie Costumes claims that this is the same costume used in Hocus Pocus, just with an altered bodice.

Given that both Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus were made by Disney, there's no way the scene is a coincidence—though whether it means that the witches of Salem could vacation in Halloweentown remains to be seen!

It also seems that Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge is particularly good at bringing things together—and not just movie universes!

Kimberly J. Brown, who portrayed lead character Marnie in the spooky-fun franchise, is dating Daniel Kountz, who played the film's villain. (You know, the one getting that revenge?) They even made some Halloween-related TikToks of their own.
