After 28 years, the cult-classic 1993 Disney Halloween film, Hocus Pocus, will get a sequel. Hocus Pocus 2 will release on Disney+ in Fall 2022. The sequel will reportedly follow three young women who accidentally bring the Sandersons back, and have to figure out how to stop them from wreaking fresh havoc on the world.
While the original film was received poorly by critics upon its release, Hocus Pocus has gained a cult following and is a hit each Halloween. The fan-favourite film saw three witches resurrect after 300 years to take revenge and begin a reign of terror after Max, who moves to Salem with his family, lights the Black Flame Candle.
Filming is set to place within weeks, with film sets currently being constructed in various locations in the US.
