If there is one film that shouts Halloween in American cinema, it is ‘Hocus Pocus.’ Even though it did not perform well at the box office, it has developed into a treasured annual event for most families throughout the country over the years.
When Max Dennison, a teenager, moves to Salem, he unwittingly resurrects a trio of witches. Indeed, fans have been clamoring for a sequel to this legendary Halloween film for an extended period.
It appears as though one streaming platform has heeded their demands. Here are all details that we currently know about ‘Hocus Pocus 2.’
Hocus Pocus 2 Release Date
While an exact release date has not been disclosed, Disney Plus has stated that the new picture will arrive in fall 2022 — likely in time for Halloween.
Meanwhile, it appears as though the picture will bypass the theatres and instead head straight to the streaming platform. Filming started in late 2021 — we’ll keep you informed as we learn more about an exact date.
Hocus Pocus 2 Cast
Disney verified the following actors for the cast of Season 2 of Hocus Pocus:
- Lilia Buckingham
- Hannah Waddingham
- Whitney Peak
- Taylor Henderson
- Doug Jones
- Sam Richardson
- Juju Brener
- Froy Gutierrez
- Tony Hale
- Belissa Escobedo

Hocus Pocus 2 Plot
The original story is on three witch sisters condemned in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1693. Max Dennison accidentally resurrects them 300 years later. Though they attempt to adapt, they are appalled to hear that Halloween has been elevated to a holiday.
Additionally, the Sanderson sisters only have one night to ensure their safety. While pursuing their objective, they wreak devastation on the city before crumbling into dust. However, Winnie’s spellbook does open its eye towards the finale, implying that the sisters have not perished completely.
It would be interesting to see how the sisters deal with the twenty-first century, especially with its technical improvements, in the sequel. Additionally, contrasting the past and present sounds like an intriguing notion.
However, because of the story’s broad range, it may be taken in various paths. Given the original film’s cult reputation, it’s reasonable to expect the tale will share a predictable arc of resurrection and future changes.
