Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer Conjures Up Nostalgia With the Return of The Sanderson Sisters
Disney+ has bewitched fans with a brand-new trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel Hocus Pocus 2. It’s been thirty years since the Sanderson sisters last conjured up some magic. The new trailer gives fans a look at how the trio of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will once again return.
The shopkeeper, played by Sam Ricardson, spins a tale of a witch getting her powers on their 16th birthday, with the girls then reading a spell, a blue flame is lit on the Black Flame Candle. We are then treated to Winifred letting all be warned saying, “Lock up your children. Yes, Salem, we’re back!
The film’s official synopsis reads:
“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.”
In the original film, Hocus Pocus, “A young teen moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.”
Alongside Midler, Parker, and Najimy, we will have Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Tony Hale, Hannah Waddingham, Juju Brener, Froy Guiterrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen joining the sequel’s cast. We also have Doug Jones reprising his role as William “Billy” Butcherson. The film will be helmed by Anne Fletcher who shared their excitement about being part of the sequel, saying:
“I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as Hocus Pocus. 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.”
Hocus Pocus 2 will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on September 30th, 2022. Check out the trailer below:
