Everyone's running amuck! Fans are asking, "When does Hocus Pocus 2 come out" now that Disney has revealed a first look at the much-anticipated sequel. (Naturally!) 

But don't break out the candy corn just yet. Even though one of the best Halloween movies is gearing up for its long-awaited next chapter, spooky enthusiasts will have to be patient. Allow us to fill you in on everything you need to know.



On Disney+ Day, a celebration of the streaming service's two-year anniversary, fans were gifted with a limited-time offer ($1.99/£1.99 per month for one month) and a sneak peek at what's to come on the platform, one of the items on the roster being Hocus Pocus 2. 

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will reprise their roles as the infamous Sanderson sisters, and the first look at the sequel, oddly enough, makes it seem like these witches haven't aged a day since the movie's 1993 release. Have a look at the trio below! 

If we didn't know any better, we'd say this production shot was taken directly out of the original film. Sure, the first movie is nearly 30 years old, but this shot will make you think otherwise. Our witchy women look better than ever!

When does 'Hocus Pocus 2' come out?

Mark your calendars: fall 2022! A specific date has yet to be revealed.

Where is 'Hocus Pocus 2' being filmed?

Filming is currently underway in Rhode Island, though the story will (once again) take place in Salem, Massachusetts. Like its predecessor, Hocus Pocus 2 will focus on three teens (all girls this go-around) who need to put a stop to the wicked witches in their quest for evil. 

Is there a 'Hocus Pocus 2' trailer?

Ah, not just yet folks! As soon as a trailer goes live, we'll be sure to give you a peek.
