Who Lit The Black Flame Candle?

It’s official, according to Deadline, Disney is remaking the Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus.

We don’t know how we feel about this.

Apparently, 2017 is the year of remakes and reboots. Almost every show we think fondly of from the past has come back to haunt us.

Will our beloved sister witches remain the same? I don’t know many people who could replace Sarah Jessica Parker, Better Middler and Kathy Najimy. As of right now, none of the original cast will be involved in this remake. Personally, I can’t wrap my head around a new set of Sanderson sisters.

Will you hop on the remake train and tune in to the new Hocus Pocus?

Join in on the conversation on our Toluna Team topic!

How about what?

ICYMI the “cash me outside” girl just landed herself a record deal. Yep, we can’t believe it either. In case you don’t know who this “star” is, take a look at this Dr. Phil clip.

 

This 13 year old girl was on Dr. Phil because her mother can no longer control her. During her segment she tells the audience to “catch me outside, how about that” except it comes out as…. “cash me ousside, how bou dah“. Now she is famous and has a record deal because of this one line.

What do you think about all of the “reality stars” today? It seems anyone can become famous for literally saying anything nowadays.  Do you prefer watching the reality drama of people such as “cash me outside” girl or do you miss the days of actors and musicians actually becoming famous for their talent?
