Melissa Joan Hart and eight of her Sabrina the Teenage Witch co-stars reunited at Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con on Saturday and it looks like it was an amazing event.
Aside from Hart, Nick Bakay (Salem), Caroline Rhea (Aunt Hilda), Beth Broderick (Aunt Zelda), Nate Richert (Harvey), Alimi Ballard (Quizmaster), David Lascher (Josh), Soleil Moon Frye (Roxie) and Elisa Donovan (Morgan) were all in attendance.
During an Instagram live video, Hart revealed that the get-together was “so crazy” because it was the first time some of the actors and actresses had ever met given that many of them had been on the show at completely different times.
Hart documented much, in fact, via her Instagram account, and you can see the pics here:
The cast also talked to ET while at the event and these snippets will just fill up your nostalgic 90s heart to the brim.
According to Rhea, “I get called 'Aunt Hilda' every day and have since 1996, and I will answer to it happily.” Broderick said: “I think we would do it in a heartbeat if we could. We're family. I was really excited just to come and see these girls.” “If we could go back to the set tomorrow, I would do it,” Hart agreed.
They were also quizzed about the new version of Sabrina which is reportedly coming to TV. Rhea admitted she’s “annoyed” about it, calling the show “a bummer.” “If they make Aunt Hilda mean, and, like, psycho? It’s, like, dark!”
From what Hart knows, The CW’s version will be a “more millennial soap opera,” so more Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and less Bewitched -- which Bakay dubs “bulls**t.” Moon Frye and Donovan said they, too, hope the reboot doesn’t tarnish the original series’ legacy.
“Our version was family friendly,” Donovan notes. “It's magical, it's female driven. Everybody can watch it. It's smart and it's witty, and I feel really good about that. I keep saying that, but I really mean it.”
So far, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has only confirmed two original characters for the reboot: Sabrina and her love interest, Harvey. “We just wish them well,” Broderick said. “Good luck. I hope it works out for them. We love the character, we love the show, we love the whole spirit of it.”
