After bursting back onto the scene in 1993, the Sanderson sisters are back once again with the announcement of HOCUS POCUS 2 making its exclusive debut on Disney+ in 2022!
It was confirmed today that Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will all reprise their roles as the delightfully wicked Sanderson Sisters in a new live-action sequel to the original cult classic.
Singer/actress Bette Midler (“The First Wives Club,” “Beaches”) returns as Winifred Sanderson, with Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex and the City”) and Kathy Najimy (“Sister Act”) back as her sisters, Sarah and Mary, respectively. In HOCUS POCUS 2, three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.
HOCUS POCUS 2 will begin production this fall under the direction of Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal,” “27 Dresses”), who is taking over directing responsibilities from her friend and colleague Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “The Wedding Planner”), with Lynn Harris (“The Shallows”) serving as producer. Shankman is currently in production on “Disenchanted” for the studio, which he is directing, but will remain on this project as an executive producer along with Ralph Winter (“Adrift”) and David Kirschner (“Curse of Chucky”). Steven Haft (“Tigerland”) is co-producer.
