If you want to get in a spooky mood, it's time to watch Hocus Pocus. But how do you get hold of it? Fortunately enough, it's easy. All you need is a Disney Plus subscription (opens in new tab) - the classic Disney film is available there. That means you can stream Hocus Pocus anytime you like, be it Halloween or otherwise.

Added as part of the streaming service's Halloween line-up, you can watch Hocus Pocus right now with a Disney Plus membership (opens in new tab) in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. And because subscriptions are relatively cheap, you can always stream Hocus Pocus and then cancel before your monthly membership renews (though you may not want to, considering the fact that we can now watch Raya and the Last Dragon or catch up with the MCU and watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier).

A 1993 fan-favorite, Hocus Pocus tells the suitably spooky tale of three witch sisters from Salem. Having cast a spell that allows them to return from the dead, they are accidentally resurrected in the modern day and have until dawn to save themselves... by consuming children (charming). Despite this, it's a family-friendly romp that'll definitely get you ready for the witching hour.

Ready to have a spell put over you? Here's how to watch Hocus Pocus in your area via a Disney Plus sign-up deal.

Watch Disney Plus in your area (opens in new tab)
If you have Disney Plus in you region, check to see if you can stream Hocus Pocus there. Although there are some odd omissions (like India Disney Plus not featuring the film), it makes sense for this Disney movie to appear on Disney's streaming service. Unable to sign up? Don't panic just yet. Although release dates for the rest of the world are staggered, you won't have long to wait if your area doesn't have Disney Plus right now. Disney has promised a rollout in most areas within the next year or so. In other words, you'll be getting your fill of the witches of Salem - as well as everything else the service has to offer - in no time. Good news, right?
