Disney Plus Drops Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer

Hocus Pocus 2 is on schedule for a Disney Plus September release and the service just dropped the trailer. True to Bette Midler’s tweet just this January, a few months’ wait will only be expected for post production to have the movie ready for the holidays.

Hocus Pocus is the wicked movie where three witches of 17th Century Salem was brought back to life in the year 1993. The movie starred Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson, and Kathy Najimy as Mary Sanderson.

Three centuries after their execution, Max Dennison  lit the Black Flame Candle on Halloween Night. This fulfills the curse that Winifred casted and brought the Sanderson sisters back to life. Max teams up with his sister Dani, his friend Allison, and Binx – a cat that Winifred also cursed in the past. This group of kids and cat prevent the witches from wreaking havoc to their town.

Hocus Pocus gained mixed reviews and average ratings during its release in July 1993. But annual Halloween release on television and celebration features steadily grew the Hocus Pocus fanbase. The film’s music and quirks casted a spell that stuck to its viewers. People still love dancing to “I Put a Spell on You” during Halloween parties. The songs still play in our heads when they initially announced that the filming is underway last November 2021.

Jen D’Angelo of “Happy Together” and “Workaholics” writes the movie. Hocus Pocus 2 will introduce us to three teenage students. Whitney Peak of “Gossip Girl” is Becca, Lilia Buckingham of “Crown Lake” is Cassie, and Belissa Escobedo of “American Horror Stories” is Izzy. They will be the three teenagers who will face off with the three witches.

Of course, the original actresses will portray the Sanderson Sisters in this much awaited sequel.

Equally promising, Ralph Winter and David Kirschner are producing Hocus Pocus 2. Kirschner was the one who came up with the idea for the original film. Apparently, Kirschner was with his daughter during Halloween when a neighbor’s black cat crossed their path. The cat inspired the story of a boy cursed three hundred years ago.

Learning this, it gave us a positive feel as to what to expect for the second movie after all these years. Even Doug Jones is back as Billy! There is wonder in knowing that a good part of the original team in front and behind the camera is here for Hocus Pocus 2.

Aside from childhood nostalgia, it is a chance to connect with the current generation. We are all excited to see them back and watch how they flip a town over with their spells and antics.

Hocus Pocus 2 is all set for Halloween 2022! Sistahs be ready!
