Hocus Pocus 3

During a recent interview with THR, Hannah Waddingham stated she “hilariously” has not heard from Disney about reprising her role as the Mother Witch in Hocus Pocus 3.

No, hilariously. I love that there’s been all this talk, and I’m here for it. But no, no. I mean, that would be amazing. I feel like I just barely, barely scratched the surface or put half an eyelash on for her. I feel like there is far more for the Mother Witch to cause magnificent mayhem. I would be so down for that. I mean, for one, Salvador Perez’s costume needs another trot out for sure, and my cape that I wouldn’t let them cut, definitely needs another swish. And she needs a song, P.S.

The Last of Us

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann discussed how the upcoming remaster of Part II is helping to inform work on season 2 of the HBO show.

I remember going into the studio to record commentary tracks for a handful of cinematics, then in the afternoon meeting with Craig to break season 2’s story—which was often based on the same sequences/moments. So, the process of working on the remaster happened to double as research, refresher for me on the intricacies of the story, along with why we made certain decisions.

I tend to focus on what we can control (is the storytelling up to our standards?) versus things we can’t control (the audience’s reaction). With the show’s popularity, I’m sure we’ll get the gamut of emotional responses. It’ll be fun seeing people’s responses to this story either for the first time or for the second time in another medium.
