‘Hocus Pocus’ Sequel Coming to Disney Plus

With a film like Hocus Pocus, if the Sanderson Sisters had to wait 300 years to come back to life then it’s a good possibility they could wait over 26 to return to the screen. That’s right, Collider has confirmed Jen D’Angelo has been hired to write the script as the film enters its early stages for Disney’s new platform, Disney+.

Currently no stars are attched to the film, however sources are saying D’Angelo, who has served as a writer-producer on Fox’s LA to Vegas and CBS’ Happy Together, is tasked with bringing back Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and (Mary Kathy Najimy) to wreak havoc on the town of Salem, MA.

Although not a huge box office success during its July 1993 theatrical run, Hocus Pocus has developed a massive cult following on home video and has aired every year on television as part of Halloween cable specials. The sequel is being produced as a Disney+ Exclusive.

With no official start date, Horror News Network will bring the updates on Hocus Pocus 2 as soon as they are announced!

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
