No one has cast a spell on you – Mary’s crooked smile really does change sides “Focus Pocus 2”.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Najimi revealed that changing Mary’s crooked smile from the left side of her face to the right led to her comfort. “It’s on the other side, mainly because it’s so hard for me to do it on the side I did it on 30 years ago.

In the September interview with Collider, Najimi shared why she believes Focus Pocus continues to resonate with generations of fans. “That movie had something like ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ where a generation shows it to their kids, who then show it to their kids, and so on, and it becomes part of the fabric of the family’s story,” she said. “I don’t think that anyone could ever foresee it.”
