Hocus Pocus 2: Release Date Status, Cast, Trailer & Latest Update!
The teaser trailer for Hocus Pocus 2 has *finally* been released, and it looks like Halloween has come early this year. Yes, the follow-up to the classic movie from 1993 is coming to Disney+, and it looks like it will be bigger and better than the original. So far, here’s everything we know.
Is There a Release Date for Hocus Pocus 2?
EW says that Hocus Pocus 2 will be the first movie to be shown on Disney+ on September 30.
Bette Midler has told fans before that Hocus Pocus 2 will be on Disney+ in the fall of 2022. We had a sneaking suspicion it would be around Halloween (because, duh), but it’s actually coming a whole month earlier, so we’ll have all of October 2022 to get into the Halloween spirit. Hooray!
Will the original cast return for Hocus Pocus 2?
Yes! Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimi will all be back for the sequel. They played Winnie, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson, respectively. Midler told Fox 5 New York, “They want to make a movie, they asked us if we were interested, and of course we all said yes.” “I’m up for it, I’m all up for it.”
But Kenny Ortega, who directed the first movie, won’t be there this time. He told Digital Spy that no one has asked him to be in the movie. He said, “It looks like there is a sequel in the works, and it looks like it will be made by someone else.” “I hope everyone has the best of luck. I hope that, however they decide to do it, it will be as fun and successful for them as it has been for us.”
Instead, the role will be played by Adam Shankman, who is best known for directing the movie version of Hairspray.
Is There a Trailer for Hocus Pocus 2?
Yes, at last! It came out today (June 28) and shows two teens getting ready for a scary sleepover. Think “birthday tradition, marathon of scary movies…” But we don’t know what this strange birthday ritual could lead to.
You can watch the trailer here:
A first-look clip from the sequel has also been posted on Disney+, and it looks great.
In a video called “Coming in 2022,” Disney showed short clips from all of its new movies, including Hocus Pocus 2, which is on the long list of movies coming out next year.
The clip shows Winnie, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson, our three favourite witches, walking through what looks like an outdoor market or festival. We can see Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimi all dressed up as the Sanderson sisters, and it makes us feel like we’re watching the first movie from 1993 all over again.
When did filming begin for Hocus Pocus 2?
Sarah Jessica Parker has shared behind-the-scenes clips from the set and hair and makeup with her fans over the last couple of years, giving them a look at how Hocus Pocus 2 was made.
SJP went on Instagram Stories to show fans how she becomes the famous witch Sarah Sanderson. She talked about the process of making Sarah’s perfect foundation match, and she also let fans see Sarah’s famous white wig. Even though there isn’t much to see, take a look at this sneak peek:
In the videos, SJP told viewers, “Hair and make-up test on HP2! First day,” while a makeup artist mixed foundations for “Sarah Sanderson’s face.” The actress then told fans, “We’ll let you know, folks, how it all turns out. How it turns out.”
In the next clip, SJP joked, “Where’s Sarah?” as she showed off her white wig. Sarah isn’t here. “There’s some Sarah!” before saying, “I’m not going to show you any more right now. We’re just getting started.”
Also, there will be new people in the cast! On October 31, 2021, which was Halloween, Disney announced that new actors would be in the second movie. Hannah Waddingham from Ted Lasso, Tony Hale from Veep, and Sam Richardson from Werewolves Within, among other new names, will be joining the cast.
The official Twitter page said, “Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Doug Jones, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen are joining the cast. #HocusPocus2 is coming to us in the fall of 2022 on #DisneyPlus!”
Sam Richardson talked to The New Yorker about his role in the sequel earlier this month. He said, “I can say that I did get to shoot a lot of scenes with the ladies, and as a fan of all three of them who grew up watching that movie, it was a really surreal and really fun and exciting process to get to watch them be those characters up close, and then also get to interact with them was really fun and really cool.
“I was always outside of myself,” he said. “Like, ‘Wow, I’m watching Hocus Pocus from the inside.'”
What will Hocus Pocus 2 be about?
Midler teased the sequel by telling People, “They gave us an outline, and after we picked ourselves up off the floor because it’s been 27 years, we looked at it, and I think all of us agreed that it was pretty great.”
