Sisters, gather ’round! ‘Tis time! Well, almost. The highly-anticipated Hocus Pocus 2 is almost in our midst, and we just cannot wait! Since Disney announced a sequel of the beloved 1993 Halloween classic was coming, we’ve been impatiently waiting for its release.
The Sanderson sisters, Winnie, Mary, and Sarah, will be back to cause havoc in Salem once again. The film will pick up 29 years since someone last lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the wicked witches. Now, they’re back for revenge. It will be up to three high school students to find a way to stop them before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.
Of course original cast members Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker will be back to reprise their iconic roles as Winifred “Winnie” Sanderson, Mary Sanderson, and Sarah Sanderson, respectively. Looks like Winnie will need her ex’s help once again as Doug Jones takes on the role of nice zombie William “Billy” Butcherson once again.
The production will introduce us to some new cast members including the three high school students tasked with stopping the sisters. Whitney Peak as Becca, Belissa Escobedo as Izzy, and Lilia Buckingham as Cassie take on the important roles. Hannah Waddingham as The Witch and Sam Richardson as Gilbert also star.
I’m sure you’re as pumped as we are to get more story with the infamous witches! So when do you need to set those alarms?
