Happy Halloween! Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 Costume Designer and Costume Designer Guild President Salvador Perez joins The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul to discuss how he put his own magical spin on the franchise while still paying homage to the original cult classic, acts of kindness from stars like Bette Midler during brisk night shoots on Rhode Island, the fantastical alternate ending to Hocus Pocus 2 and much more!
