Hocus Pocus 2 got its first trailer on Tuesday, according to Disney. When the three witches who were influential in the comedy picture from 1993, Sarah Jessica Parker (57), Bette Midler (76), and Kathy Najimy (65), fans will get to see them repeat their roles as they return to the big screen.
There you have it, baby. Hocus Pocus 2, the 1993 cult classic scary comedy, had three legendary antiheroines in the form of the Sanderson Sisters. The witchy sisters storm Salem again in the upcoming sequel’s first trailer.
‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Brings Back The Sanderson Sisters For The First Time In Many Years.
Two young girls call them in to perform a dark ceremony in an attempt to activate any witch power. They inadvertently summon the Sanderson Sister, a child-eating stage actress. The characters of Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker have been reprised.
Despite its poor critical reception, Kenny Ortega’s Hocus Pocus 2, released on home video and television, has become one of the most popular Halloween films of all time. It’s a must-have for not-so-scary movies right now, not to mention a significant source of cash for Salem as a tourist destination.
Among the new cast members are Hannah Waddingham, Doug Jones, Sam Richardson, Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham. Anne Fletcher has been cast in the follow-up, which will debut on Disney Plus on September 30.
It’s hard not to get excited about returning to Salem because the first film is a cult masterpiece and so many legacy sequels feel barefaced cashing in on the nostalgia. Here’s all you need to know about the Hocus Pocus 2 as we eagerly await the Sanderson Sisters’ return.
It’s now possible to watch the video again. The trailer premiered on June 28, 2022, and was accompanied by an official poster.
Hocus Pocus 2 gave a brief sight of the returning sisters and a brief view of them in action before the film’s release. Disney+’s 2022 teaser contains precisely one second of the film so that you may loop it as well.
Hocus Pocus 2 – Release Date:
The sequel will debut on Disney+ on September 30, 2022, according to Disney’s upfront presentation in May 2022. It began filming in Rhode Island on October 18, 2021 and finished in late January 2022.
If you’re looking for something to fill the void until Hocus Pocus 2 comes out, you can always revisit the original on Disney+. Everything appears to be on schedule for the sequel’s release later this year, save any unexpected delays.
The Hocus Pocus 2 Cast!
Bette Midler, Winifred (Kathy Najimy), Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary Sanderson will all return for the sequel in October 2022.
We await official confirmation that the actresses will return to reprise their roles as the witch three began in May 2021, but the movie wouldn’t be the same without them.
Sadly, we don’t expect to see Thora Birch return to her role as Dani Dennison because of scheduling issues. In May of 2022, she remarked, “Everyone exasperated so hard to make it happen, and it just didn’t, but everybody tried so hard.
Omri Katz and Vinessa Shaw, who played Max and Allison, have yet to confirm their return. In March 2022, Katz inquired whether the original stars were resurrected: People are certainly quite disappointed that we are omitted, as I’ve learned from chatting to many supporters.” But I may be telling the truth. We’re all in this together! Possibly, we aren’t. “It’s possible!”
We know that Veep actor Sam Richardson will appear in the sequel, but we have no idea what role he will play because the teaser gives us no hints beyond the fact that he is either a shop owner or a librarian at some occult store. He’s been making fun of the fact that he enjoys Hocus Pocus just as much as the rest of us.
Along with Doug Jones returning as Billy Butcherson, the Sanderson Sister’s mark is discovered on three new teens, including Lilia Buckingham (Becca), Whitney Peak (Izzy), and Belissa Escobedo.
