Did “Hocus Pocus 2” Miss Its Biggest Twist with Thora Birch’s Dani?

NOTE: This article is 8 months old and may not include the most recent information.

The enchanting world of “Hocus Pocus” returned to bewitch audiences, but with a conspicuous absence: Thora Birch’s beloved character, Dani. Fans expressed their dismay, and as it turns out, there’s more to the story than meets the eye.

Originally, Dani wasn’t just meant to have a fleeting appearance. Instead, she was envisioned as Salem’s vigilant guardian. With anti-magic tools at her disposal, she was ready to challenge the Sanderson Sisters in a narrative that would have undoubtedly added layers of depth and intrigue to the film. This version of Dani, grown and seasoned, would have provided a nostalgic yet fresh perspective, blending the charm of the original with the excitement of the new.

Multiple scripts were crafted, each experimenting with Dani’s role. Some drafts gave her a central storyline, transforming her from a vulnerable child to a formidable force. However, due to the complexities and unpredictability associated with film production, this plotline was shelved.

In a revealing conversation, screenwriter Jen D’Angelo shed light on these untold intricacies. The whispers about Dani’s potential role as a schoolteacher were indeed accurate. While “Hocus Pocus 2” was well-received, one can’t help but ponder the magic that could have been with Dani’s compelling storyline. As audiences and fans continue to discuss and dissect the sequel, the allure of the “Hocus Pocus” universe remains undiminished, with secrets still waiting to be unveiled.
