"Lock up your children!"
After nearly thirty years, the Sanderson Sisters are back, and Disney has conjured up a trailer for Hocus Pocus 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 1993 Halloween classic, with stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy reprising their roles as Winifred, Sarah and Mary Sanderson, respectively.
In the original Hocus Pocus, the 17th-century witches were unwittingly revived on All Hallow's Eve by a virginal teenage boy and his ragtag group of friends. In Hocus Pocus 2, the sisters are brought back to life once again by two teenage girls (Whitney Peak and Belissa Escobedo) who light the Black Flame Candle. "If we intend to live past sunrise, we have to steal their souls," Winnie explains.
Hocus Pocus was directed by Kenny Ortega, while the sequel is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) from a script by Jen D'Angelo. The cast of the sequel also includes Hannah Waddingham, as a glamorous witch who gives the sisters their first spellbook, along with Sam Richardson, Tony Hale, and RuPaul's Drag Race queens Ginger Minj, Kahmora Hall and Kornbread "The Snack" Jeté.
Hocus Pocus 2 drops on Disney+ Sept. 30. Watch the trailer below.
