To tie-in with Halloween, Disney has announced some new details and a teaser for the upcoming Disney+ Original movie, “Hocus Pocus 2”, which will be coming to the streaming service in 2022.

In the film, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will reprise their roles as the delightfully wicked Sanderson Sisters, who are brought back to modern day Salem by three young women accidentally and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.

Joining the cast are Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Doug Jones, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.

“I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as ‘Hocus Pocus,’” says director Anne Fletcher. “Fans around the world have embraced these characters and have made this film a Halloween tradition whose popularity continues to grow, and how lucky am I to be back at Disney with these three extraordinarily talented ladies in the iconic roles they created, as well as our fabulous new additions to the cast?”

“Hocus Pocus 2” has recently begun production and will be directed by Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal,” “27 Dresses”). Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “The Wedding Planner”), and Lynn Harris (“The Shallows”) are serving as an executive producer along with Ralph Winter (“Adrift”) and David Kirschner (“Curse of Chucky”). Steven Haft (“Tigerland”) is co-producer.

The first “Hocus Pocus” film is available on Disney+ now.
