Debuting Disney+ from 30 Sep, Hocus Pocus 2 is a haunting sequel to the Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem - just in time for the family to sit back and enjoy a Halloween movie indoors!
Resurrected After 29 Years
Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson were the most powerful coven of their time before they were executed for practicing witchcraft and vowed to take their revenge on the town of Salem. Following the happenings from the film in 1993, the trio of witches have been waiting to be resurrected for 29 years and to exact revenge on those who have wronged them!
High-school student Becca accidentally releases the Sanderson sister when she lights the Black Flame Candle on her 16th birthday within Salem's Forbidden Woods. Now it is up to the 3 high-school students, Becca, Izzy, and their estranged friend, Cassie to to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
A Halloween Comedy
There are not many family-friendly Halloween comedies, and Hocus Pocus 2 is definitely one of them. Look out for the funny bickering among the evil sisters as they try to understand the "new" world and comedically navigate towards their evil plans - imagine what would a witch fly on if there were no more brooms left?
