The long-awaited sequel to Hocus Pocus is arriving this Halloween season—and the first teaser trailer reminds us that some legends never die!
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are back as the Sanderson Sisters for Hocus Pocus 2, which was directed by Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip) and written by Jen D’Angelo (Workaholics). Here’s the official synopsis:
“It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters who were executed for practising witchcraft, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to figure out how to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.”
Horror icon Doug Jones returns as beloved character Billy Butcherson for the sequel. The film’s cast also includes Whitney Peak (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt), Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories), Sam Richardson (Werewolves Within), Tony Hale (What Josiah Saw), Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Froy Gutierrez (Teen Wolf), Juju Brener, Taylor Paige Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.
