‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Trailer Will Put A Nostalgia Spell On You: ‘We’re Back, Witches’
Much less terrifying than any of Bette Midler’s recent tweets, the first trailer for the long-awaited “Hocus Pocus” sequel arrived on Tuesday, making for a glorious morning.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and Midler get back to their witchy glory in the first look at ‘Hocus Pocus 2,’ announcing, “Lock up your kids! Yes, Salem, we’re back!” before letting out a signature chuckle.
Coming nearly 30 years after the beloved 1993 Disney film, the sequel sees a group of high school kids light the famous Black Flame candle and resurrect the 17th century Sanderson sisters, who are out for revenge.
“Now it’s up to three high school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on Halloween,” the official synopsis reads.
Directed by Anne Fletcher and written by Jen D’Angelo, “Hocus Pocus 2” will arrive just in time for Halloween, debuting on Disney+ on September 30.
“Now more than ever, people need to laugh. We should laugh every day, and there’s so much fun to be had with these three amazing women playing delightful characters from such a beloved film,” said Fletcher in a statement.
Other than the main trio, the stars of the first film won’t be returning for more Halloween fun. The sequel features an all-new cast of characters, including ‘Ted Lasso’ star Hannah Waddingham, ‘Gossip Girl’ breakout Whitney Peak, ‘Veep’ alum Tony Hale and ‘The Tomorrow War’ Sam Richardson. .
Disney also released a new poster for the film, stating “We’re back, witches.”
