Back in May, we reported that cult-classic Hocus Pocus was getting the Disneyworld treatment with the stage show, “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” running September 15 to November 1st.

Now check your calendar. That’s right, the Sanderson sisters have been resurrected once more, performing their first live show on Tuesday during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

And lucky everyone–minus, say Thackery Binx–the entire production is up on YouTube! (Look, I’m not big on exclamation points, but this is an EMERGENCY!)

The plot is a sequel to the original of sorts, bringing Winifred, Mary and Sarah (devastatingly not played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker) back to our world for one night, wherein they decide to throw an evil Halloween celebration featuring some of familiar Disney faces including Maleficent, Hook and Jafar.

Hope you had a wicked good time tonight at opening night for Mickey's #NotSoScary Halloween Party!

But wait. There’s more.

Original Thackery Binx (in cat form), Jason Marsden–not to be confused with James Marsden, as I did for a moment and got real excited–recorded dialogue for Binx in the stage show.

Kenny Ortega, the show’s director (who directed the original film as well as Newsies and High School Musical), posted the below photo on Instagram with the caption:

“I am beyond excited and grateful that #HocusPocus continues to be a fan fave the world over. A live Hocus Pocus Show opened @waltdisneyworld for Halloween. After more than than 20 years, #thesandersonsisters continue to brew it up! A shout out to my witches @BetteMidler @KathyNajimy @SarahJessicaParker Thank you Cast, Crew, Fans and #Disney #Winifred- “You know, I’ve always wanted a child. And now I think I’ll have one… on toast!”

Now, let’s bring this thing to Broadway with the original cast (sorry, Disney World–you’re great though).
