They’re running amok, amok, amok!

The infamous Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus 2–the much-anticipated sequel to the fan-favorite 1993 Disney film–recently were caught in costume in Providence, R.I., filming the movie that is slated for a fall 2022 debut on Disney+, as reported by cbr.com. Check out the goodies on this page.

These images show Bette Midler as Winifred, Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah and Kathy Najimy (a special guest at this year’s CT HorrorFest) as Mary ready for their closeups. The sequel also features Doug Jones as Billy Butcherson, Whitney Peak as Becca, Lilia Buckingham as Cassie and Belissa Escobedo as Izzy, as well as Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Juju Brener, Froy Henderson and Nina Kitchen.

Hocus Pocus 2–directed by Anne Fletcher from a screenplay by Jen D’Angelo–is set 29 years after “someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-Century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, and they are looking for revenge,” according to the official synopsis.

Now, it’s up to three high school students to “figure out how to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.”

The original Hocus Pocus–directed by Kenny Ortega from a screenplay by Mick Garris and Neil Cuthbert–follows the witchy Sanderson sisters after they were resurrected on Halloween night in Salem. The film was not received well by critics or moviegoers, but has gone on to become a Halloween staple through the years.
