Earlier this fall, it was announced that the Disney Channel聽was in the early stages of reimagining the 1993 witch classic聽Hocus Pocus聽into a new TV movie. Sadly, the original cast (Sarah Jessica Parker,聽Kathy Najimy, and Bette Midler) are not going on board to reprise their original roles 鈥 and in fact, one of the iconic original witches, in particular, has expressed that she鈥檚 not too happy about聽the film happening at all.

Speaking to People聽on Monday at the聽New York Restoration Project鈥檚 Hulaween party, Hocus Pocus鈥 original聽head witch in charge Bette Midler had some harsh words about the still in-the-works project.

鈥淚 know it鈥檚 cheap,鈥 she said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 going to be cheap!鈥

Last year at the Hulaween party 鈥 which Midler hosts 鈥 she actually brought back her famous Winifred Sanderson character from the film for the soiree. It鈥檚 a character the actress obviously takes聽some ownership over, and she expressed as much at this year鈥檚 shindig.

鈥淚鈥檓 not sure what they鈥檙e going to do with my character,鈥 she said. 鈥淢y character is very,聽very聽broad and I don鈥檛 know who they鈥檙e going to find to play that.鈥

The new movie, which is still just in development, is being written by Scarlett Lacey, while the film鈥檚 original producer David Kirschner is also on board. Original director Kenny Ortega, however, is not attached to the project.

All three of the main cast members have said in various interviews over the years that a sequel would absolutely interest them. But when asked about whether she might聽pop up in the new TV remake (if, you know, the money talked), Midler made it perfectly clear where she stood on the matter: 鈥淣o, no, no!鈥

Maybe it鈥檚 time to revisit the idea of a sequel after all!
