The Sanderson sisters are back with Hocus Pocus 2! Yes, you heard that right. After a 29 year hiatus, production is underway for the sequel to the 1993 cult classic. The live-action comedy is set to premiere on Disney+ in the Fall of 2022, just in time for next Halloween.
There’s plenty of reasons to be excited for the release of Hocus Pocus 2, whether it’s your tradition to watch it every Halloween, or you’re just a fan of the iconic performances. Here are some of the reasons we’re looking forward to it!
The Main Cast Returning
It goes without saying that Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy gave their all when portraying the characters of Winifred, Sarah, and Mary. We’re certain that they’ll give us stellar performances again, and we’re excited to see where they will take these characters next. How will the Sanderson sisters fare in the present day?
Doug Jones will also be returning as Billy Butcherson!
New Cast Additions
Joining our main cast are Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl) as Becca, Lilia Buckingham (Dirt) as Cassie, and Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories) as Izzy, three young women in present-day Salem who incite the wrath of the three witches.
With the new cast comes a new plot for us to enjoy! It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, and now, they’re looking for revenge (of course). It’s up to three high school students to try and figure out how to stop the witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.
