Just ahead of the release of the upcoming Disney+ Original film, “Hocus Pocus 2”, Disney held a special premiere for the film at New York’s AMC Lincoln Square Cinema.

The cast and filmmakers from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus 2” including Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Sam Richardson, Doug Jones, Tony Hale, Froy Gutierrez, Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, Lilia Buckingham, Taylor Henderson, Nina Kitchen, Juju Brenner, Kahmora Hall, and Ginger were in attendance, as were filmmakers Anne Fletcher (director), Jen D’Angelo (screenwriter), Lynn Harris (producer), and Adam Shankman (executive producer), and guests Kristin Chenoweth, Sunny Hostin, and Ralph Macchio.

It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.

Here are some photos from the premiere:
