The Hocus Pocus font that is used in the movie title and logo lettering from this hit Hollywood movie is a typeface by the name of Kidela. It was designed and created by Jeremy Dooley and first released back in 2007. The file is distributed in a True Type Font (TTF) format, which means that it is fully compatible and installable on all PC and Mac computers.

An interesting point to note about this particular font is that the letters “J” and “I” both include a decorative star motif. This gives these letters a destinctive “magic” or sparkle appearance which will definitely help you replicate the exact look and feel from the original Hocus Pocus movie font. The preview image below shows the full character map that is included with the Kidela font. Uppercase, lowercase, numbers and a limited set of special characters are all included.

It contains only Uppercase glyphs, which is sufficient to recreate an exact replica of the original Hocus Pocus logo.

About the Hocus Pocus typeface

Hocus Pocus is a family and comedy movie that was released in the USA on 16 July 1993. The production company responsible for this movie was none other than Walt Disney Productions, and it was directed by Kenny Ortega. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are the three main stars. The central plot for the movie starts in Salem, Massachusetts in 1693. During this time three witches cast a spell on one of the local towns people (Emily Binx) to steal away her youth. This ultimately kills her. The three witches are then sentences to death. Fast forward to the modern age, and the witches are accidentally brought back to life by local LA resident Max Dennison. The rest of the movie revolves around attempts to recapture the witches and send them back to the grave.

The movie continues to be popular across all demographics. We see the Hocus Pocus font used in promoting re-runs of this movie most commonly during the holiday periods where families continue to enjoy it.
