Disney+ has only been active for a few years now and has already breathed new life into franchises that were believed to have been lost to time. One such franchise is the beloved Halloween film, Hocus Pocus. It has become a cult classic and must-watch for the month of October for many that grew up with it. The film follows three Witches who’ve been set free after a black candle is lit within their old home. As such, the children must steal the witches book of spells before they’re able to make themselves immortal. The original stars of the 1993 Halloween film are set to return in a sequel to the original which will stream exclusively on Disney+.
A new set video has been released via TikTok that gives us quite a good look behind the scenes of the upcoming sequel. In the video, you can clearly see Winifred and Sarah Sanderson taking off on their brooms above Salem, now in the modern-day. The rest of the video includes more looks at the film from afar, as well as stunt doubles making their way to and from the set.
Hocus Pocus 2 is currently set to release in the fall of 2022, hopefully just in time for Halloween. The sequel is set to follow the return of the Sanderson sisters to Salem, brought back by three high school girls who must now send them back once again. The film will feature the return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and Doug Jones. Newcomers to the film are Whitney peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Sam Richardson, Tony Hale, and Froy Gutierrez.
