The Halloween classic Hocus Pocus will get the sequel the worlds been waiting for this month on Disney+.
On September 30 The Sanderson Sisters, with original trio, return and the story of the three witches continues to grow.
For those that haven’t seen or can’t remember the original Hocus Pocus, well worth the watch, The Sanderson Sisters, Winifred, Sarah and Mary, were condemned to death in 17th Century Salem but Winifred casts a curse that will resurrect them if someone lites the Black Flame Candle during the full moon on All Hallows’ Eve.
True to the curse they were then brought back to life in 1993 when the Black Flame Candle was lit on All Hallows Eve under a full moon.
The three then chase the three children and cat, who they created when they cursed a villager three hundred years ago, who lit the candle around Salem trying to complete the spell they were enacting in 1693 and take back the spell book they need.
In the end the Sisters are turned to stone and presumed dead but the spell book opens it’s eye hinting that they may be alive still.
Bette Midler as Winifred was iconic with her book call and look, it also introduced her to a younger audience with this role.
In the new film it’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge.
Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
The haunting sequel to the Halloween classic brings Bette Midler (The First Wives Club), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act) back as the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters along with Doug Jones (The Shape of Water) as Billy Butcherson, former lover of Winifred and helpful zombie in Hocus Pocus.
Hocus Pocus 2 also stars Sam Richardson (The Tomorrow War), Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl), Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt), Froy Gutierrez (Teen Wolf), with Tony Hale (Veep) and Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso).
The new film will be available on Disney+ from September 30.
