Thackery Binx is one of the tritagonists in Hocus Pocus. He is turned into an immortal black cat in the beginning of the film. During the film, he finds himself growing attached to Dani Dennison.

History

Thackery was a 17th century boy living with his mother, father, and sister, Emily. One day, he followed her into the woods, but was unable to rescue her from the three Witches, and after insulting Winifred, was transformed into an immortal black cat. After the sisters were hanged, he was unrecognized by his family and was abandoned. At some point afterwards, he decided to guard the house every Halloween night in order to prevent the sisters from returning. In 1993, when a teenage boy named Max Dennison accidentally brought them back, he acted as a guide for him, his sister Dani, and his crush, Allison. During the adventure, he quickly takes a liking to Dani, and bonds with her. After the Sanderson Sisters disappear off the face of the earth at sunrise, his soul was freed. He leaves with Emily when saying goodbye to Max, Dani, and Allison.

Personality

Thackery is shown to be a caring, brave, and determined character, as he cares about his family, and also, after he loses Emily, he becomes determined not to fail anymore, no matter what it takes. He has also been shown to be a loving brother to her, as he was determined to save her from the sisters, even though he failed. He is also cautious, as demonstrated when expressing that the spellbook must be kept shut. During his time with the children, he becomes attached to Dani, and cares about her.

Disney Parks

In 2015, Binx made his Disney Parks debut in the opening of the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular show during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, in which the Sanderson Sisters, newly returned, try to wreak havoc and create a Halloween party potion with assistance from multiple Disney Villains. He does not physically appear, although it can be assumed that his spirit has invisibly returned to give this short dialogue as a voiceover prior to the show:

"Good evening, friends. Tonight on All Hallow's Eve, your world and the magical world collide for but one night: A night filled with a new trick, a little treat, and a bit of... 'hocus pocus.'"
