Gather round my sisters!! Disney has news about Hocus Pocus 2!!


‘Hocus Pocus 2’ recently wrapped up filming and now the countdown begins for the release of the new film on Disney+!

A few months back, Adam Shankman, the executive producer of the new film, posted an image announcing that they had wrapped up filming.

Now more than ever, people need to laugh. We should be laughing every day, and there is so much fun to be had with these three unbelievable women playing delicious characters from such a beloved film. I am so grateful to be able to play a part in bringing these witches back to life, and to be working with my friends at Disney again makes it all the more special. This is a movie for everyone, from the fans who grew up with the first film to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started.

Anne Fletcher, director, had said in a statement
