It's been far too long since the last Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault--last November, actually! Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I think I picked the perfect film to cover this time around. Disney has recently announced its plan to remake a favorite amongst Millennials specifically for the Disney Channel. But isn't every pre-9/11 Disney… Continue reading Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: Hocus Pocus
