With Hocus Pocus 2 debuting one month from today, on September 30, 2022, Disney has released the new poster. The poster, which you can view in full by scrolling down, carries the tagline: “Back and more glorious than ever.”
The film will premiere exclusively on Disney+ as a part of the streaming service’s Hallowstream celebration.
The new poster for the sequel to the Halloween classic gives you a new look at Bette Midler (The First Wives Club, Beaches), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City, Divorce), and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act, Younger) as the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters.
It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge.
Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
“Hocus Pocus 2” also stars Sam Richardson (The Tomorrow War), Doug Jones (The Shape of Water), Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl), Belissa Escobedo (American Horror Stories), Lilia Buckingham (Dirt), Froy Gutierrez (Teen Wolf), with Tony Hale (Veep) and Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso).
The film is directed by Anne Fletcher (Dumplin’, The Proposal) and produced by Lynn Harris (King Richard, The Shallows).
Ralph Winter (Hocus Pocus, X-Men franchise), David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Chucky) and Adam Shankman (Disenchanted, Hairspray) serve as executive producers.
The original film was released in 1993 and directed by Kenny Ortega. That film also starred Omri Katz, Thora Birch, and Vinessa Shaw. In the movie, the three outlandishly-wild witches return from 17th-century Salem after they’re accidentally conjured up by some unsuspecting pranksters.
It’s a night full of zany fun and comic chaos once the tricky 300-year-old trio set out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth… but first they must get their act together and outwit three kids and a talking cat.
