Jam City, a leading mobile game company behind some of the world’s highest grossing and most enduring mobile games, announced that its hit match-3 puzzle game Disney Emoji Blitz is celebrating the spookiest season of the year in style by releasing a celebrity-hosted video featuring Hocus Pocus actress Kathy Najimy, one of the stars of the beloved Walt Disney Studios classic film. New Halloween-themed Emojis based on Hocus Pocus and other fan-favorite films, Disney Parks, and Disney Villains will be introduced to the game for players to unlock. The game will even have its own Oogie Boogie Bash Event, inspired by the Halloween party happening at Disney California Adventure Park.
Kathy Najimy, who plays Mary Sanderson in the quintessential Halloween film Hocus Pocus, is featured in a new video kicking off the Halloween festivities in Disney Emoji Blitz. The video is available now on the game’s YouTube channel.
