Grab your brooms and gather around Hocus Pocus fans! It may be 28 years later, but the 1993 Halloween original Hocus Pocus film is still keeping us talking. Disney caught on to the Hocus Pocus cult following and announced in 2020 they will be releasing a Hocus Pocus sequel soon enough. With production beginning on “Hocus Pocus 2” this past month, we’re grabbing at any piece of exciting Sanderson Sisters news we can get. Most recently, two videos have gone viral showing the set of Hocus Pocus 2 in the midst of filming!

“Amuck, Amuck, Amuck!” Each Sanderson Sister is back with Bette Midler as “Winifred”, Sarah Jessica Parker as “Sarah”, and Kathy Najimy as “Mary” reprising their cast roles. The child hungry witches are sure to cause all sorts of trouble in the sequel. While information about Hocus Pocus 2 has been few and far between, we have recently learned of the Hocus Pocus 2 plot which has us on the edge of our seats. Photos of the Rhode Island set in production have also been revealed which shows a Salem village will be part of the new film.
