It's been heavily rumoured for some time, but earlier this week, Bette Midler put a stop to it all.

During a Facebook Q&A, Midler was asked about the status on the Hocus Pocus sequel which has been reportedly been in the pipeline for quite some time.

"After all these years and all the fan demand, I do believe I can stand and firmly say an unequivocal no," Midler replied, dashing millions of fans hope in an instant.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, her two on-screen sisters, both expressed an interest in returning for a sequel and there was a reunion of sorts for the younger cast members just recently.

The latest rumour even suggested that it would be a directorial debut for Tina Fey, however this confirmation from Midler seems to have finished it off once and for all.

It's a shame, really, considering how many people loved Hocus Pocus. Ah well.
