Mariah Carey steals show at star-studded Hocus Pocus reunion as she reminds everyone Christmas is coming

2 months ago 9

Mariah Carey totally stole the show as she popped up for the Hocus Pocus Halloween reunion.

The cast of the 1993 classic – including Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy – delighted fans as they returned for the hour-long virtual special.

The gang reprised their roles in order to raise funds for the New York Restoration Project.

In the spirit of spooky season, they explored the history of their iconic characters in the episode – entitled In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover, and delved into their family tree.

However, as thrilled as we were for the spooky stars to be back on our screens, Mariah’s brief cameo elicited the most screams from viewers.

In a clip from the special that is making the rounds on social media, the We Belong Together singer was seen opening the door with a very Christmassy backdrop behind her.

‘Oh if it isn’t Winnie Sanderson looking for a candy bar…,’ she told Bette Midler’s character.

‘I got news for you girl, Halloween is nearly over so scat!

‘It’s my turn now. Get out!’

As she slammed the door, All I Want For Christmas could be heard playing over the credits.

Sharing the clip on Twitter, the Queen of the festive season wrote: ‘Thank you to the Divine Miss M @BetteMidler for having me! 

‘Best Halloween movie ever!!’

Fans couldn’t contain themselves at the cameo, with one tweeting: ‘YAS AT @MariahCarey CRASHING THE #HOCUSPOCUSHULAWEEN reunion!!!!!! Queen!!!! #HocusPocus.’

‘The Mariah Carey All I Want for Christmas is You ending made me cackle. As Her (Christmas)elf. #NYRPHulaween #HocusPocus,’ another agreed.

‘FML I’m done! This is ICONIC,’ a Twitter user screamed. ‘Two of my favorite worlds colliding.

‘@MariahCarey aka #QueenOfChristmas and @BetteMidler aka #WinifredSanderson aka #BestHalloweenMovieEver #HocusPocus.’

‘#MariahCarey being in the #HocusPocus universe is the stuff my dreams are made of,’ a follower added. ‘I literally can’t believe it!’
