Last year, Bette Midler excited fans of the 1993 film Hocus Pocus when she mentioned in an interview that all three principal stars of the film were interested in a sequel. And today, there has been an official announcement.
Sarah Jessica Parker posted a Hocus Pocus 2 logo to her Instagram account, writing, “Yep. I’m ready. To run.
Amok, amok, amok, amok. #HocusPocus2 arrives Fall 2022 on @disneyplus.”
Bette Midler posted the same graphic to her Instagram, writing, “Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… But we’re BACK!”
Kathy Najimy also posted, writing, “The people have spoken: I smell children…again.”
Disney Plus confirmed the news on their official account, saying, “It’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus 2 @BetteMidler, @SarahJessicaParker, and @KathyNajimy will reprise their roles as the delightfully wicked Sanderson Sisters in #HocusPocus2, coming fall 2022 to #DisneyPlus.”
