When it premiered on October 17, 1993, Halloweentown immediately became a fan-favorite Disney Channel Original Movie. Starring Debbie Reynolds, Kimberly J. Brown, Judith Hoag, Joey Zimmerman, Phillip Van Dyke, Emily Roeske and Robin Thomas, the original flick spawned three sequels, which added Daniel Kountz and Finn Wittrock to the cast list.

The iconic film followed a girl named Marnie Piper who found out that she was a witch after her Grandma Aggie came for a visit on Halloween night. With the discovery of her powers, Marnie and her family open the portal to a magical world called Halloweentown filled with ghosts, goblins, ghouls and, of course, witches.
