Disney+ has revealed new art for the upcoming Hocus Pocus 2, nearly 30 years in the making since Hocus Pocus debuted in 1993. With a trailer already out–don’t miss it here–Disney is getting folks salivating for the September 30th launch of the sequel.
Bette Midler (The First Wives Club), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City), and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act) return to reprise their roles as the 17th-century sisters.
So what’s Hocus Pocus 2 about?
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.
