Bette Midler has no trouble stepping down from the title role in the Broadway smash “Hello, Dolly!” — but she thinks she’s irreplaceable in the witchy comedy “Hocus Pocus!”

The Divine Miss M starred in the Halloween cult classic in 1993.

But now she’s slammed news of an upcoming Disney TV remake, with the studio trying to dodge reuniting the original cast in a sequel.

“It’s going to be cheap!” blasted Bette.

“My character is very, very broad, and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that!”
