New Story Details Revealed for ‘Hocus Pocus‘ Sequel Coming to Disney+. Disney Fans are very excited to hear any news regarding the upcoming sequel ‘Hocus Pocus 2‘ and thanks to The Illuminerdi we now have new details regarding the film’s new character and story!
The new story details confirm THR’s report of “three young women will be summoning back the Sanderson Sisters.” Hocus Pocus 2 will reportedly feature a new protagonist, a high schooler named “Becca” who is said to be a loner without many friends. Becca is said to be an aspiring witch who gets a Black Flame Candle from a local magic shop, which just so happens to be the Sanderson Sister’s old home. With the help of her classmates “Izzy,” an oddball classmate, and “Cassie,” the mayor’s daughter, extremely popular at school, and Becca’s bully. The girls mistakenly summon the Sanderson Sisters and cause chaos around town on Halloween Night Other key characters include the magic shop owner named “Giles” and another classmate named Sam who works for Giles at the shop. Sam is reportedly a love interest in the film. Becca also has a “kind and cheerful” stepmother “Luann” who Becca reportedly can not stand.
Singer/actress Bette Midler (“The First Wives Club,” “Beaches”) returns as Winifred Sanderson, with Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex and the City”) and Kathy Najimy (“Sister Act”) back as her sisters, Sarah and Mary, respectively. In “Hocus Pocus 2,” new characters Becca, Izzy, and Cassie accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern day Salem and the girls must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.
“Hocus Pocus 2” will begin production this fall under the direction of Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal,” “27 Dresses”), who is taking over directing responsibilities from her friend and colleague Adam Shankman (“Hairspray,” “The Wedding Planner”), with Lynn Harris (“The Shallows”) serving as producer. Shankman is currently in production on “Disenchanted” for the studio, which he is directing, but will remain on this project as an executive producer along with Ralph Winter (“Adrift”) and David Kirschner (“Curse of Chucky”). Steven Haft (“Tigerland”) is co-producer. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney+!
