Teasing a black flame candle and an absolutely entrancing instrumental version of “Come Little Children,” Disney confirmed on this All Hallow’s Eve some of the cast joining the upcoming HOCUS POCUS 2!
We already knew that Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will all reprise their roles as the delightfully wicked Sanderson Sisters the Disney+ sequel to original 1993 cult classic but now we have some insights into who else cometh to the party! Confirmed via tweet, the expanded cast will include Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Doug Jones, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.
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. 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.
The film is under the direction of Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal,” “27 Dresses”) with Lynn Harris (“The Shallows”) serving as producer. Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “The Wedding Planner”) is an executive producer along with Ralph Winter (“Adrift”) and David Kirschner (“Curse of Chucky”). Steven Haft (“Tigerland”) is co-producer.
