Posted on

If you grew up in the '90s there's a good chance you've heard of a little film by the name of Hocus Pocus.


It's basically a flawless movie. You have soul sucking witches, a talking cat, oh, and a musical number to end all musical numbers.


But what if I told you there was a way to take this perfect film to the next level?


Well, Twitter user Persephone did just that when she tweeted her idea for a Hocus Pocus reboot starring all black actors.

Oh, and the best part about Persephone's reboot idea? It's all set in New Orleans and centers around voodoo.


So basically, someone please call up Ava DuVernay so we can make this reboot a reality.
