The Sanderson sisters placed a spell on moviegoers nearly 30 years ago in the classic movie ‘Hocus Pocus.’ A generation of families grew up bewitched by the hilarious comedy. Now, Disney has finally dropped the long-awaited teaser trailer for a sequel three decades in the making.

It has been 29 years since the Black Flame Candle was lit. The 17th-century sisters have been resurrected and are out for revenge. Three high school students must intervene to stop the witches from wreaking havoc on Salem.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are all back for the sequel. Doug Jones returns to play fan-favorite Billy Butcherson. Several new characters have also been thrown into the mix.

The original ‘Hocus Pocus’ took theaters by storm in 1993. It failed to make major traction at the box office. Time has been kind to the film, and it has become a majorly successful cult classic.

Watching ‘Hocus Pocus’ around Halloween has become a family tradition for many. Now, a new generation of fans will get to see what made the franchise so beloved in the first place. The new movie will be exclusive to the Disney+ streaming platform.

You can check out the new trailer for ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ below. The movie will start streaming on September 30th. For now, this little taste will have to be enough to tide fans over.
