Anna Kendrick

Kendrick earned a Tony nomination for playing younger sister Dinah Lord in High Society and has shown off her singing talents in the films "Pitch Perfect" and the upcoming "The Last Five Years." Kendrick was featured in the "Twilight" movies and will be seen as Cinderella in the film adaptation of Into the Woods. Naturally, Hocus Pocus should be next on her musical resume! 

Jennifer Damiano

Damiano, a Tony nominee for her performance in Next to Normal, has already battled supervillains onstage in Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark. We think she'd be a great choice for the love interest who bravely fights the witches alongside Max and Dani.
