Hocus Pocus 2
Hocus Pocus 2 is a fantasy movie and the sequel to the 1993 Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus. The movie was released on Disney+ on September 30th, 2022 and as Disney is within our licencing portfolio, we thought we would give you a brief throwback to the original movie and let you know all about the new sequel.
The Disney movie is a story of three witch sisters who were executed in Salem in 1693 and returned to create havoc 300 years later, on Halloween. It is more than a classic; it is a cultural touchstone. Moderately successful on its first release, it became a phenomenon on home video and is now an annual tradition for many families, with parents who loved it in the ’90s sharing it with the next generation. Disney hit just the right spot between spooky and silly, with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as a sort of witchy Three Stooges.
Nearly 30 years later, Hocus Pocus 2 should make fans of all generations happy, paying tribute to the original and adding some gentle updating. The Black Flame Candle has been accidently lit and resurrected the 17th-century Sanderson sisters, and as it has been almost 30 years since they were last released, 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. The adult cast from the first movie includes Doug Jones, the brilliant actor behind the creature in The Shape of Water and Abe in Hellboy, as the hapless zombie Billy Butcherson and welcomes new additions including Tony Hale, Sam Richardson and Hannah Waddingham.
In the short time the film has been released it has received praise from both critics and fans all across the world from all different generations!
