Bette Midler took to Twitter with some exciting news – the Sanderson sisters are back and Hocus Pocus 2 will release in Fall 2022 on Disney+.
The Sanderson Sisters are back – Hocus Pocus 2 will release in Fall 2022 and head to Disney+. The original Hocus Pocus may have debuted to middling critical reception and low fanfare at the box office, but since its original 1993 release, the film has become a bonafide Halloween classic. From Halloween movie marathons to making Salem, Massachusetts, the location where the first movie was filmed, a tourist hotspot, Hocus Pocus‘ cultural impact is undeniable.
The original film followed Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy as three witches from the Massachusetts town. When they are brought back to life by an unwitting high schooler new to Salem, the teens must fight for their lives to defeat the Sanderson sisters once again. Hocus Pocus 2 has been confirmed to be in development since December when Disney announced the film at their 2020 Investor’s Day presentation. Little has been announced since then, but Mary Sanderson actress Najimy revealed that the trio had seen the script for Hocus Pocus 2.
Now, Midler has taken to Twitter to announce that the witches will be making their return in fall 2022, just in time for Halloween. Hocus Pocus 2 will hit Disney+ sometime next year as part of the streamer’s slate of original content. An exact date was not given, but Midler did reveal the logo for the highly anticipated film.
