As Disney+ Day begins, the streamer has released the first image of the hotly-anticipated Hocus Pocus 2 with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy back in costume as the wicked Sanderson Sisters. Check out the image here…
Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal), the Disney+ movie will see the original Sanderson sisters back alongside Doug Jones as Billy Butcherson, while Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt) as Cassie, and Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories) play Becca, Cassie and Izzy, three young women in present-day Salem who incite the wrath of the three witches.
Also starring in the sequel are Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Sam Richardson (Veep), Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Doug Jones (Star Trek: Discovery), Juju Brenner (Vanquish), Froy Gutierrez (Cruel Summer), Taylor Henderson (Earwig and the Witch) and Nina Kitchen.
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 they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to figure out how to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.
Hocus Pocus 2 will be released Fall 2022.
