I know, I know… it’s barely even summer, but it looks like we already have something to look forward to this Halloween because Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy have all been confirmed to reprise their original roles in Hocus Pocus 2!
It’s all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus 2️⃣

That’s right! The 1993 fantasy comedy is FINALLY getting a sequel, as Disney has confirmed… plus, the production also starts this fall!
Back in 2019, Disney revealed that the second part was in development with its streaming platform, Disney+. Now, with the cast on board, production is expected to commence this autumn as Midler took to Twitter to celebrate the news, ‘Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… But we’re BACK!’.

Hocus Pocus 2 is set to premiere sometime in 2022.
