The Sanderson sisters are back!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re very happy for the OG’s many fans. While a teaser trailer doesn’t give you much to go on, Disney also released some first look images:

 

We have to admit, that’s pretty great makeup for all three of them. It can be … difficult, for an actor to step back into a role with a distinct look three decades later and not have the response be entirely about how much they’ve aged in that time – especially if they’re playing supernatural characters who technically shouldn’t have aged at all. It seems to us that the makeup for each character has been revised just enough to make up for the changed faces of the actresses while keeping their looks entirely consistent with the original film. We have to admit, we’re especially curious to see SJP’s work in this one, because she seemed a little dubious about returning to the role and we suspect she’s not entirely in love with going back to the sort of bubbly blonde roles that defined her career pre-Sex and the City.

 

It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve. “Hocus Pocus 2” also stars Sam Richardson (“The Tomorrow War”), Doug Jones (“The Shape of Water”), Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”), Whitney Peak (“Gossip Girl”), Belissa Escobedo (“American Horror Stories”), Lilia Buckingham (“Dirt”), Froyan Gutierrez (“Teen Wolf”), and Tony Hale (“Veep”). The film is directed by Anne Fletcher (“Dumplin,’” “The Proposal”) and produced by Lynn Harris (“King Richard,” “The Shallows”), with Ralph Winter (“Hocus Pocus,” “X-Men” franchise), David Kirschner (“Hocus Pocus,” “Chucky”) and Adam Shankman (“Disenchanted,” “Hairspray”) serving as executive producers.

The live-action, long awaited sequel to the perennial Halloween classic, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem, will debut on Disney+ on September 30.
