In a recent press release, Disney confirmed that Hocus Pocus 2 would see three young women accidentally bringing the Sanderson sisters back to modern-day Salem. Now they have to figure out how to stop the child hungry witches from creating havoc on the world.
Now it is not too dissimilar from the first film then if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. The film will be directed by The Proposal Anne Fletcher. This assures us that the film will please both the new and old fans in the same way.
Fletcher also said: “I am so grateful to be able to play a part in bringing these witches back to life and to be working with my friends at Disney again makes it all the more special,” she said. “This is a movie for everyone, from the fans who grew up with the first film to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started.”
Meanwhile, Bette Midler also said: “I think all of us agreed that it was pretty great” – so whatever happens in the movie it looks like fans could be in for a (trick or) treat.
