It’s time to run amok, amok, amok! Disney has confirmed a Fall 2022 release for Hocus Pocus 2. Production for the bewitching sequel has started and Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will be returning to their roles as the Sanderson Sisters.

In Hocus Pocus 2, it’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the Sanderson Sisters. They’re out for revenge and it’s now up to three high school students to stop the rampaging witches in Salem. We can’t wait to get more details on this one!

“Now more than ever, people need to laugh. We should be laughing every day, and there is so much fun to be had with these three unbelievable women playing delicious characters from such a beloved film,” says director Anne Fletcher. “I am so grateful to be able to play a part in bringing these witches back to life, and to be working with my friends at Disney again makes it all the more special. This is a movie for everyone, from the fans who grew up with the first film to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Anne Fletcher takes over for the OG director Adam Shankman, who has a scheduling conflict. Doug Jones, who played Billy Butcherson in the original, will return to reprise his role. Keep an eye out for Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale and Sam Richardson, who are joining in on the sequel fun!
