As a part of the network’s 31 Nights of Halloween, Freeform has allotted a night specifically for the cult classic’s 25th anniversary. 31 Nights of Halloween will run from Oct. 1 to, of course, Oct. 31.  



Freeform has announced that the event will include interviews from two of our three favorite witches. Alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, the special will feature more interviews with director Kenny Ortega and other cast members such as Omri Katz and Thora Birch, according to E! News.

Both before and after the special, Freeform will run a trivia version of the movie. Packed with questions, the interactive showing will also include fun facts, quotes and commentary.

The 25th anniversary special will also host a costume contest, judged by mother-daughter duo Sharon and Kelly Osbourne.

Finally, the special will feature live music performances by Dove Cameron, PrettyMuch and Junior News System.

If you happen to live in the Los Angeles area, you can actually be a part of the magic. On Oct. 2 in Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the event will all unfold live. The free event is open to fans. To request a ticket for the event, check out the announcement here.

However, if you can’t make the live event, you can always watch the Hocus Pocus special from your own home. The 25th anniversary extravaganza will air Oct. 20 at 8:15 p.m. on Freeform.
