About the Movie

In “Hocus Pocus 2,” it’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century Sanderson Sisters.

But they’re back 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.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy reunite as the wicked Sanderson Sisters for this highly anticipated film. Doug Jones also returns as Billy Butcherson.

As we announced last Halloween, joining them will be Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Juju Brenner, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.

The film is directed by Anne Fletcher (“Dumplin’,” “The Proposal”), and produced by Lynn Harris (“King Richard,” The Shallows”).
