Hocus Pocus Season 2 Release Date: Will Thora Birch Leave the Show?

The filming of Hocus Pocus 2 has come to an end, and now the wait for the first trailer is finally over. The Sanderson Sisters return to Salem, Massachusetts in the sequel, which premieres on Disney+ over three decades after the original.

There will be a sequel to the beloved film starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy. We’ve been given an opportunity to see the sisters in action as we wait for the official trailer to arrive.

As a result of Adam Shankman’s work on the Disenchanted sequel, Anne Fletcher was assigned to direct the sequel, which was initially scheduled to be directed by Shankman. Jen D’Angelo has written the script for the picture, which is being produced by Shankman as an executive producer.

What are we waiting for? Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming sequel to Hocus Pocus.

Who Will Return in Hocus Pocus Season 2?

The evil Sanderson sisters of Salem, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy in director Kenny Ortega’s 1993 original, will return for the sequel, which spectators saw for the first time during Disney’s presentation.

Midler squeals in delight as two young girls ignite the Black Flame Candle, a witch summoning device “Lock up your children! Yes, Salem, we’re back!”

A cover of “The Bitch Is Back” by Elton John follows, featuring Billy Butcherson (Doug Jones) and an as-yet-unidentified character (Sam Richardson). The mayor of Salem, played by Tony Hale, is also seen in the clip.

Will Thora Birch Leave the Show?

As a result of schedule problems, we won’t be seeing Thora Birch back on the show as Dani Dennison. We don’t know yet if Omri Katz and Vinessa Shaw will return as Max and Allison.

In March 2022, Katz asked if the original stars would be making a comeback: “As I talked to a lot of fans today, it was clear that many were upset that we weren’t involved. However, I could be telling the truth. It’s a team effort! No, we may not be. We could be!”

Sam Richardson, the star of Veep, has been cast in the sequel, although we don’t know who he’ll be playing yet. That he’s a Hocus Pocus enthusiast like the rest of us is something he has been joking about.

“To work with the ladies is… I’m outside of myself when I’m doing these scenes,” he told ET. “I’m like, ‘This is them!’ The Sanderson Sisters are like there, doing their spells and I have a grin on my face.”

What Will Be the Storyline of Hocus Pocus Season 2?

The first story tidbits for the sequel were revealed in May 2021, along with the formal announcement.

In modern-day Salem,”Three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern-day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world,” it says.

Poppy, her best buddy Travis, and Isabella, a girl Poppy has a crush on, were the focus of a novel sequel released in July 2018 titled Poppy, Isabella, and Travis.

Poppy goes into the Sanderson mansion during a blood moon in order to impress Isabella and accidentally revives the sisters. Non-canonical: It’s not certain if this is exactly what will happen in the movie sequel.

It was shown at the end of the first film that the magic book was alive and well, indicating that the witches could return.

Despite the fact that we don’t know much more about the sequel, it’s enough for us to know that the returning actors have been praising it. “We looked at [the script] and I think all of us felt that it was very amazing,” Midler remarked in 2020.

The good news is that Hocus Pocus 2 will include a real musical piece. ‘I Put a Spell on You’ is sung by the sisters in the first film. It’s not yet clear what the sequel’s theme tune is going to be, although there could be more than one.
