PHOENIX – The Sanderson Sisters are back with more spells, singing and sass!
Though the rumor of a Hocus Pocus 2 movie is nothing new, the film is now officially in production according to an article by Screen Rant.
However, like all magic, there is a catch. The new movie is less of a sequel and more of a remake. Yup, another remake. This means it is expected to have a whole new cast of brave children and evil witches.
The movie is expected to go straight to television and will air on Freeform. Plus, with Disney Plus preparing to launch, it may end up on Disney’s streaming service as well.
Hocus Pocus 2 will bring back executive producer David Kirschner and will introduce scriptwriter Scarlett Lacey to the world of spooky. Original director Kenny Ortega is not expected to work on this film.
Here is a trailer for the original Hocus Pocus in case anyone is unfamiliar (or wants to relive the magic of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy).
Are you excited for this reboot?
