This past Halloween, fans of Hocus Pocus were treated on social media that the black flame candle had been lit. Of course, this meant that the long-awaited sequel would be coming to Disney+. Fans will only have to wait a little bit longer to see the Sanderson Sisters “running amok.” Hocus Pocus 2, the long-awaited sequel to the perennial Halloween classic, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem, will debut on Disney+ on September 30.
In the meantime, Disney+ shared the first trailer, teaser art, and stills for the Disney+ Original movie “Hocus Pocus 2,” reuniting Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, are now available. You can check out everything below.
Hocus Pocus 2 reunites Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy and brings in a new crew of young kids ready to take on evil. The Sanderson sisters look absolutely delighted to start up trouble again.
The synopsis for Hocus Pocus 2
It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
The sequel’s characters that were announced back on Halloween
“Hocus Pocus 2” also stars Sam Richardson (“The Tomorrow War”), Doug Jones (“The Shape of Water”), Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”), Whitney Peak (“Gossip Girl”), Belissa Escobedo (“American Horror Stories”), Lilia Buckingham (“Dirt”), Froyan Gutierrez (“Teen Wolf”), and Tony Hale (“Veep”). The film is directed by Anne Fletcher (“Dumplin,’” “The Proposal”) and produced by Lynn Harris (“King Richard,” “The Shallows”), with Ralph Winter (“Hocus Pocus,” “X-Men” franchise), David Kirschner (“Hocus Pocus,” “Chucky”) and Adam Shankman (“Disenchanted,” “Hairspray”) serving as executive producers.
I’ve been getting more and more interested in seeing what writer, Jen D’Angelo, and director, Anne Fletcher, have brewed for this sequel. I’m starting to get excited, but now we will have to wait for the teasers and trailers.
