‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Officially Has A Release Date For Disney+ Release

Disney officially revealed the release date for Hocus Pocus 2, Disney+’s anticipated sequel to the cult classic 1993 film, also revealing the first footage from the film.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will be return as Winifred, Sara, and Mary Sanderson on Friday, Sept. 30.

Footage Tuesday showed the moment the sisters were once again summoned, with Middler’s Winifred screaming, “Lock up your children! Yes, Salem, we’re back,” according to Entertainment Tonight.

The footage then showed the Sanderson sisters launching into a cover of Elton John’s “The Bitch Is Back.” Meanwhile, Doug Jones’ Billy Butcherson also made an appearance, as well as a still-unnamed character played by Sam Richardson. The clip also featured Tony Hale, who plays the mayor of Salem.

It was previously confirmed that Hocus Pocus 2 will follow high schoolers Becca, Cassie, and Izzy – portrayed by Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, and Belissa Escobedo – as they light the Black Flame Candle and accidentally bring the Sanderson sisters back to present-day Salem. As the Sanderson sisters begin to wreak havoc on Salem in an attempt to lengthen their lifespans, the young women have until midnight on All Hallow’s Eve to stop them.

Rounding out the cast are Hannah Waddingham, Dan Finnerty, and Sam Richardson, as well as RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Ginger Minj, Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté, and Kahmora Hall, who will portray drag versions of Winifred, Mary, and Sarah.

Thora Birch, who starred in the original Hocus Pocus, will not return as Dani.
