Hocus Pocus 2 has finally released the first trailer for its long-awaited sequel, which will be in theatres for Halloween. The Sanderson Sisters return to Salem, Massachusetts, to wreak havoc on Halloween in Hocus Pocus 2, which will be released over 30 years after the original film.
The first film is a renowned cult masterpiece, and while many legacy sequels tend to feel like shameless cashing in on nostalgia, it’s difficult not to anticipate a return to Salem. We cannot wait to see what the Sanderson Sisters have in store for us in Hocus Pocus 2, so here is all you need to know.
Hocus Pocus 2 Release Date
The sequel will be available on Disney+ on September 30, 2022, according to Disney’s upfront presentation in May 2022. The sequel began filming in Rhode Island on October 18, 2021, and will conclude in late January 2022.
All we can do now is wait for Hocus Pocus 2, but in the meantime, you can rewatch the original film on Disney+ to fill that witchy-shaped hole in your life. Barring any unexpected delays, everything appears to be on pace for the sequel to enchant us later this year.

Hocus Pocus 2 Plot
Along with the official announcement in May 2021, we received our first plot details for the sequel.
“Three young ladies inadvertently summon the Sanderson Sisters back to modern-day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the globe,” it says.
This sounds a lot like the book sequel that came out in July 2018 and was about Max and Allison’s daughter Poppy, her friend Travis, and a girl named Isabella who Poppy has a crush on.
Poppy sneaks inside the Sanderson house during a blood moon to impress Isabella and accidently brings the sisters back to life. It’s uncertain whether this is what will happen in the movie sequel, thus it could end up being non-canon.
