Hocus Pocus 2 is not coming to Disney+ in October 2021

Disney+’s Halloweenstream event is almost upon us! The holiday celebration, which will kick off with the premiere of the new LEGO Star Wars special Terrifying Tales, is set to delight subscribers to the streamer with the new supernatural original series Just Beyond, a reboot of the ’90s Halloween classic Under Wraps, and more! One movie that’ll be missing, however, is Hocus Pocus 2.

The sequel to the 1993 holiday staple has been on the minds of many fans excited to see what’s next for the Sanderson sisters. As this is a sequel and not a reboot, viewers who’ve loved the original since they were kids can rest easy when it comes to the casting of the witches. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are all set to reprise their roles.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, they’ll be brought back into a modern-day Salem like they were in the original. However, instead of a boy, his kid sister, and his crush accidentally reviving the witches, it’ll be a trio of young women. Plot details are bare at the moment, but the sisters returning in an era of even more technological advancement is going to be hilarious to watch.

When will we get to see the Sanderson sisters make their descent on Disney+? Here’s what we know about the sequel’s release date!

Hocus Pocus 2 release date

Hocus Pocus fans can anticipate the second movie’s release in the fall of 2022. Disney+ confirmed the release date window in a tweet on May 20, 2021.

Given the streamer’s annual Halloweenstream event, Hocus Pocus 2 is likely to premiere sometime in October 2022 as the sequel will be a big draw for the platform during the holiday season. We’ll keep you posted on more release date news as it comes in. Stay tuned to Hidden Remote!

Hocus Pocus will be a part of Disney+’s 2021 Halloweenstream. The ’90s classic will also air during Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween event. For a list of air dates and times, click here.
