We know you've already got plans to settle in to re-watch Hocus Pocus for the millionth time this Halloween (and you can watch it pretty much every day for the rest of the month if you want), but make sure you don't miss Freeform's 25th anniversary reunion special -- Bette Midler sure isn't!

Freeform announced today that Bette Midler has signed on to join the Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash, an all-star party in honor of the cult classic film's milestone anniversary. The two-hour special, hosted by Vanessa Hudgens and Jordan Fisher at the iconic Hollywood Forever Cemetery, will celebrate the movie's status as a Halloween staple with special appearances and video messages from cast members, behind-the-scenes secrets from filming and even a costume contest that has creepy characters running "amuck, amuck, amuck, amuck!"
