Thackery Binx is one of the tritagonists in Hocus Pocus. He was transformed into an immortal black cat in the beginning of the film. During the film, he finds himself growing attached to Dani Dennison.
Thackery Binx might be everyone’s favorite black cat , and the resident cursed colonial teen of Hocus Pocus fame might even be more well-known than Salem , the cat of one Sabrina the teenage witch. Given his happy ending, which reunited him with his sister, Emily, Binx likely wouldn’t be coming back.
Kitty Carnage Warning! The cat Binx dies at the end of the film but Binx’ spirit lives on.
The Sanderson Sisters were three witches who lived during the Witch Hunt Era in Salem, Massachusetts and were hanged on All Hallow’s Eve of 1693. Winifred’s two sisters Mary & Sarah Sanderson are not shown to have the same mental capacities or finesse as Winifred, but possess formidable skills in their own right.

As Schremph also points out on BuzzFeed, there’s no reasoning behind Binx not being able to talk at the beginning of the film. But what really comes off as strange is that Billy still has his skin, which probably should have deteriorated by the time the movie took place.
Thackery , a.k.a. Sean, was only 16 at the time when he played Emily’s heroic older brother.
4 Binx Dies On Emily’s Grave Though Binx is cursed to spend immortality as a cat, when the Sanderson sisters are destroyed, his spirit is able to move on, and the cat “ dies .” When Binx dies , it’s in the same graveyard where he took the kids to give them background on the witches.
The producers wanted Binx — both the cat and the boy — to sound like a young man from the 1600s, and Murray’s voice was too contemporary to adequately convey such tonality. Thus, they opted for an actor who could create the identity desired for the cat via his voice alone.
Technically, a “where are they now?” story on Hocus Pocus character Emily Binx would be rather morbid — even by Halloween standards. She was murdered by a trio of sassy witches in the last 1600s and, you know, has been dead and ghostly ever since.
