Production begins on Hocus Pocus 2

Production on the live-action comedy Hocus Pocus 2, the haunting sequel to Disney’s Halloween cult classic, is underway in Rhode Island. The Disney+ original film directed by Anne Fletcher (Dumplin'The Proposal) will debut exclusively on Disney+ in Fall 2022. 

Bette Midler (The First Wives ClubBeaches), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City), and Kathy Najimy (Sister ActYounger) star as Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters who bewitched audiences in the 1993 film Hocus Pocus

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. 

“I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as ‘Hocus Pocus,’” said director Anne Fletcher in a media release. “Fans around the world have embraced these characters and have made this film a Halloween tradition whose popularity continues to grow, and how lucky am I to be back at Disney with these three extraordinarily talented ladies in the iconic roles they created, as well as our fabulous new additions to the cast?”
