Hocus Pocus 2 finally announced for Disney Plus with original cast

Hocus Focus 2 has finally been confirmed with Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy reprising their roles.

The iconic trio are returning as the chaotic Sanderson Sisters and the movie will focus on what happens when they are brought back to modern-day Salem by three young women.

They then have to try to stop child-hungry witches from carrying out their maleficent plans on the modern world.

Disney officially announced the exciting news and will exclusively premiere the sequel on their platform Disney Plus in 2022.

Bette also confirmed the news, taking to social media to leave fans screaming with joy.

“Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… But we’re BACK! #HocusPocus2 arrives Fall 2022 on @DisneyPlus,” she tweeted.

Sex and the City star Sarah also took to Instagram to spread the word, writing: “Yep. I’m ready. To run. Amok, amok, amok, amok. #HocusPocus2 arrives Fall 2022 on @disneyplus. Sisters???”

The original was released in 1993 to average reviews but soon gained cult status in the 28 years that followed.

Adam Shankman was originally signed on to direct the movie but, due to scheduling conflicts, has been replaced by 27 dresses director Anne Fletcher.
