Disney released this Tuesday (28) the first teaser for “Hocus Pocus 2”, the sequel to the classic film released in 1993. Resurrected by a group of friends, the Sanderson sisters return to Salem with a greater thirst for revenge.
In the video, Becca, Cassie and Izzy discuss how they will celebrate their 16th birthday. Soon after, Sam Ridcharson appears as a shop owner and says: “There is a legend that says that it is at age 16 that witches get powers”.
Then two of them read the spell aloud and relight the Black Flame Candle. The ground begins to open up and 17th century witches appear. Actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy and Bette Midler return to portray their iconic characters.
In the original film, the villains tried to devour children to maintain their youthful appearance. But now, 29 years later, it’s up to the three high school teens to figure out how to stop the witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on “All Hallow’s Eve”.
Directed by Anne Fletcher, the cast includes Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale and Froy Gutierrez. Doug Jones, who played Billy Butcherson in the original version, will reprise the role in the new film. “Hocus Pocus 2” debuts September 30 exclusively on Disney+.
