Disney+ just dropped the first teaser trailer for the Hocus Pocus sequel titled Hocus Pocus 2!
And while the cinematography has definitely improved over 29 years, some things never change as a new group of curious teens decides to play with fire and light the black flame candle.
While they likely weren’t expecting the ground the crack in half beneath their feet, they must be prepared for the rise of the Sanderson sisters.
“Some legends never die,” the teaser notes as Winifred (Bette Midler), Mary (Kathy Najimy), and Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) emerge once again to wreak havoc on the town of Salem and eat the souls of children to restore their youth. Yep, Disney was that bold back then!
“Lock up your children!” Winifred announces, adding, “Yes, Salem, we’re back!”
Hopefully, the new Binx (who is truly like “this again?!) can help them put those witches in their place once and for all!
The trailer will put a spell on you, so beware!
The film arrives on Friday, Sept. 30 to kick off the spooky season!
It also stars Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Sam Richardson (Veep), Doug Jones (Star Trek: Discovery), Tony Hale (Veep), Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl), Belissa Escobedo (The Baker and the Beauty), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt) and Froylan Gutierrez (Cruel Summer).
