We were thrilled to hear that Hocus Pocus 2 will be coming to Disney+ in the fall of 2022. We have anxiously be awaiting more news on this sequel to one of our favorite Halloween movies and can’t wait to see what the Sanderson sisters will be up to now.
Just as exciting is that news that Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will be reprising their roles as the delightfully wicked Sanderson Sisters in the live-action comedy “Hocus Pocus 2,” the spooky sequel to Disney’s 1993 Halloween cult classic “Hocus Pocus.”
In “Hocus Pocus 2,” three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.
Hocus Pocus 2 is scheduled to begin filming this fall under the direction of Anne Fletcher who is stepping in for her good friend and colleague Adam Shankman who will be working on Disenchanted.
When asked about the film, Shankman said,
“Now more than ever, people need to laugh. We should be laughing every day, and there is so much fun to be had with these three unbelievable women playing delicious characters from such a beloved film,” says director Anne Fletcher. “I am so grateful to be able to play a part in bringing these witches back to life, and to be working with my friends at Disney again makes it all the more special. This is a movie for everyone, from the fans who grew up with the first film to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started.”
And we couldn’t agree more! Let the countdown begin!
