The wait will be over on Halloween! Producer Adam Shankman has recently revealed that filming for the highly-anticipated movie starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy had ended in an Instagram post.
Taking to Instagram, the producer of Hocus Pocus wrote, “SISTAAAAAHHHHSSS! Aaaaand that’s a WRAP!!! #hocuspocus2.” “Congratulations to the amazing team @bettemidler @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy @567and8 @mrsleshem and the WHOOOOLLLEEEE cast and crew!!!” Shankman also teased the release date for the Disney+ sequel movie, which is directed by Anne Fletcher, writing, “Coming to you #halloween #2022 on @disneyplus.”
However, filming for the movie began in November with the three stars reprising their roles as Winnifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson, three witches who hunt children to retain their youth. Disney revealed plot details for the highly-anticipated sequel. The movie will pick up almost 30 years after Max (Omri Katz) lit the Black Flame Candle in the 1993 film version and accidentally resurrected three witches on the hunt to steal children.
Meanwhile, in the sequel, Winifred, Sarah and Mary seek revenge as they awaken in present-day Salem, according to Entertainment Weekly. Three teenagers, Becca, Cassie, and Izzy, must find a way to stop the witches from gaining retribution. Gossip Girl star Whitney Peak, Dirt’s Lilia Buckingham, and American Horror Stories star Belissa Escobedo will star as the three teens. The cast of Hocus Pocus 2 also includes Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Doug Jones, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.
