This article discusses the Disney+ film Hocus Pocus 2 including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.
We have the sequel to one of the best Halloween movies set to stream on Disney+ in Hocus Pocus 2. Can the new film live up to the original? Here is everything we know about the upcoming film.
Hocus Pocus 2 premise
The film is based on three young girls who accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to Salem. The trio must figure out a way to stop the sisters from taking over modern-day Salem.
Our opinion of the premise
The premise alone has me reeled in, even with being slightly skeptical of why we needed to make a sequel to the near-perfect original. However, how the writers intend to bring the Sanderson sisters back makes perfect sense, and watching them adapt to modern-day Salem should be a blast.

Look, any questions you might have about the idea of Hocus Pocus needing a sequel or not went away the moment I watched this trailer. This movie looks AMAZING. The visuals, the introduction to the Sanderson sisters, my goodness, I AM ALL IN, folks. I am even more excited than I was before. The addition of Sam Richardson looks to be perfect casting (I love that guy). Bring me Hocus Pocus 2, ASAP
