Finally, the iconic Halloween film from the ’90s will receive the sequel it deserves in Hocus Pocus 2. We’ve seen the trailer recently, and we know a little bit more about what the film will entail by the time it comes out in September.
The return of Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson sisters in Hocus Pocus 2 was first announced in May 2021. This sequel to the 1993 film, which is available exclusively on Disney Plus, picks up with Max and his deliciously evil sisters 29 years after their resurrection.
All Hallows’ Eve, they plan to wreak havoc once again on the town of Salem, Massachusetts, and it’s up to a new group of youths to try to stop them.
Hocus Pocus 2 Release Date: When Is Hocus Pocus 2 Released?
The only question is if you can hold out until Halloween to see Hocus Pocus 2, which will be available on Disney+ on September 30, 2022.
The sequel’s production began on October 18, 2021, in Rhode Island, and ended in late January 2022.
We must now patiently await the release of Hocus Pocus 2, but until then, you can always revisit the original film on Disney+ to satisfy your witchy movie needs.
Hocus Pocus 2 Cast
The original trio of terrible witches, Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, will return to the screen.
Doug Jones, who played Billy Butcherson in The Shape of Water and What We Do in the Shadows, will also be reprising his role. Winifred’s zombie ex-boyfriend Billy was instrumental in Max, Dani, Allison, and Binx’s initial victory over the sisters.
The first photo of Doug in full costume for the forthcoming film was recently revealed by Entertainment Weekly.
Becca, Cassie, and Izzy, three high school kids who provoke the Sanderson sisters, will also appear, played by Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt), and Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories).
Emmy winner Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Veep’s Tony Hale, The Tomorrow War’s Sam Richardson, Vanquish’s Juju Brener, Teen Wolf’s Froyan Gutierrez, Taylor Paige Henderson, and Nina Kitchen also star.
While the character of Dani Dennison is returning, Thora Birch will not be playing her again.
What Will the Hocus Pocus Sequel Be About?
There will be havoc wreaked in present-day Salem by the Sanderson Sisters. According to Disney+, “it has been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge.” It is up to three high school students to prevent the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer: Watch the Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer Here!
The first Hocus Pocus 2 trailer dropped on June 28, 2022, and as was indicated above, it was poor on the storyline but heavy on spookiness.
The promotional material hinted at the reappearance of the Sanderson Sisters and showcased other iconic Hocus Pocus props including the Black Flame Candle.
On September 9, 2022, Disney debuted a second trailer for Hocus Pocus 2, which focused more on the film’s plot than the teaser.
The Sanderson Sisters’ 16th birthday appears to be the beginning of the film, as that is when they receive the magic book. In addition, we witness the three of them resurrect and hatch a plot to rob the souls of the teens who unintentionally resurrected them.
