The legacy: Alright, that’s tricky because you have to separate the characters from the aftermath of the movies. While both Casper and Hocus Pocus endure as Halloween classics and two of the most popular (and played) movies of the season, the legend of Hocus Pocus has only grown with time, becoming a cult classic that didn’t quite come true when it was released was estimated July 1993.
Freeform always starts its legendary 31 Days of Halloween program with Hocus Pocus and will play it right on Halloween for literally 24 hours. Also, the long-awaited sequel finally premiered on September 30, quickly setting a hot record for Disney+. So when it comes to his film’s legacy, the winner is Thackery.
However, when it comes to the characters’ legacy, Casper has the edge, as the character has spawned several direct-to-film sequels, video games, and a hit animated series. Thackery, on the other hand, is more of a confusing object of our teenage affections, and some people still think his name is Zackary.
