But generations of Disney fans have fallen in love with the original film. Why does there need to be a reboot? Fans and even the original cast wanted a sequel. So Bette ain't having it, according to People.

“I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap!” she told PEOPLE Monday at the New York Restoration Project’s Hulaween party, which Midler hosts.

And when it comes to Midler’s original character of lead witch Winifred Sanderson, the actress said it’ll be tough to recast the role.

“I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character,” she said. “My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”
