TIFFANY TAYLOR: Get ready to cast a new spell. A "Hocus Pocus" sequel is coming to Disney Plus in 2022. "Hocus Pocus 2" is a follow-up to the 1993 feature film that starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as three witches who were resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts, and who are bent on becoming immortal. All three stars are returning for the sequel, which begins production in the fall.

TIFFANY TAYLOR: This time, three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson sisters back to modern day Salem. They must stop the child hungry witches from causing a new kind of toil and trouble. Disney Plus also confirmed that "The Proposal" filmmaker, Anne Fletcher, is taking over directing duties from Adam Shankman, who was previously attached to direct and remains on as an executive producer. Kenny Ortega directed the first "Hocus Pocus," which was viewed as a box office disappointment, earning $39 million, but becoming a cult classic on home entertainment.
