Women in Horror month continues with the exciting announcement that every 90s kid’s three favorite witches are returning to the public spotlight! Some fans were left wanting a little more nostalgia after the Septermber announcement that the upcoming Hocus Pocus TV movie on the Disney Channel would be a remake rather than a direct sequel to the popular 1993 film. But now, Disney has announced that the famous Sanderson sisters will also have a new adventure of their own this year!
Oh My Disney reports that a new book entitled Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel will hit store shelves on July 10th, 2018, just in time for the 25th anniversary of the original movie! The novel will be composed of two parts, with the first section devoted to a “fresh retelling of the original film,” and part two being a direct sequel which will continue the Hocus Pocus storyline. The following is the cover art for the upcoming book:
The sequel will follow the original Sanderson witches and Poppy, the daughter of two popular characters from the original film (I’ll never say who! But you can click our source link if you’re looking for spoilers), as they try to set things right after they “accidentally release a coven of witches from the afterlife and have to save Salem and everyone in it.” If anyone can fix this problem, it’s Winifred, Sarah, and Mary!
Whether it be the big screen, the small screen, or the book store that the Sanderson sisters next turn up, stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on all things Hocus Pocus as soon as they break!
