Hocus Pocus has become a cult classic throughout the years since its release in 1993.

The film is about three witches who are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts. In the sequel, three young teenagers accidentally bring back all three of the wicked sisters back to modern day Salem.

We have seen many teasers and announcements for the upcoming sequel, but have not yet seen a return date or confirmation that the three original actresses would be starring in the film.

Release Date

Disney has also announced that Anne Fletcher will be taking over directing duties from Adam Shankman.

Adam Shankman shared the following comments regarding the direction of the film to the Hollywood Reporter,

““As heartbroken as I am that I won’t be able to direct my friends Bette, Sarah Jessica and Kathy in what is sure to be nothing short of a major event for Disney+ due to scheduling conflicts, I couldn’t be more pleased to be handing over the reins to Anne, who has brought so much laughter and joy into people’s lives with her previous work,” says Shankman, who is in production on Disenchanted for Disney. “I am still grateful and proud to help shepherd this ingenious project as executive producer alongside producer Lynn Harris, whom I have loved and admired as a colleague and friend since she helped get me the job choreographing Boogie Nights.”

Though he will not be directing the film, he will still remain as the film’s executive producer.
