This article discusses whether there will be a Hocus Pocus 3 sequel to the Disney Plus film Hocus Pocus 2, which will contain spoilers.
The Sanderson coven is back this Halloween, and it’s as if they never left Salem. Hocus Pocus 2 delivers a new tale for the next generation while subtly giving the witches we have grown to love a much-needed backstory. In this sequel, three young women, Becca (Whitney Peak), Izzy (Belissa Escobedo), and Cassie (Lilia Buckingham), accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern-day Salem. This is a strong sequel because it has a message about loving the people in your life regardless of disagreement. The first film didn’t have a strong storyline, so this sequel was a nice surprise because it had a bit more heart. Who would have thought that three witches who eat children would have some love?
Hocus Pocus 2 sequel potential release date
If Hocus Pocus 2 does well on streaming, there is a possibility that there could be a third installment. There is no official release date, but it could be filmed in the next couple of years. It would make sense to do another one because the second film already set up a new coven so well. If they want to bring the themed Disney channel movies back to the streaming service, this would be the way to go.
Hocus Pocus 2 sequel cast – who might be in it?
At the end of the second film, the Sanderson sisters all disappear together, and they are on a different spiritual plain. There is a new coven that is teased at the end. Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham would all return for the third installment. Knowing that there is another trio of witches to take over Salem could mean an interesting modern-day spin on the town itself. Tony Hale (Cassie’s dad) and Sam Richardson, who plays the store owner Gilbert, could also come back in the third one.
Hocus Pocus 2 sequel plot – what could Hocus Pocus 3 be about?
Since the new coven has just discovered their powers, they could face a threat from the other spiritual plain the Sanderson sisters are on. This threat could unintentionally open up their capacity to become stronger witches. They could also bring the Sanderson sisters back as a cameo to help them harness their powers as well. Of course, Gilbert would help them as well, and it would take place on Halloween night again.
You can watch this film with a subscription to Disney Plus.
