Even better is the confirmation that Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker will be reprising their roles as Winifred, Mary and Sarah Sanderson in the follow-up. It was Midler herself who dropped the news on social media, along with the film’s title card, which was enough to get the nostalgia going already. Story details and other casting beyond the leading actresses have yet to be revealed, but the hype is still at breaking point, as you can see below.

Is it next Halloween yet?

*Captain America voice* I understood that reference.

Ok, but if the Sandersons are on board, can we get Doug Jones back as friendly zombie Billy, too?

Actually, just get everyone from the original back, Disney.

This had better be the return the Sandersons deserve.

Disney Plus is about to get a lot more subscribers.

This news comes shortly after Disney announced that Disenchanted, the long-awaited sequel to Enchanted, is in production now ahead of its debut next year. What a year 2022 will be!

The first film saw three kids – Max (Omri Katz), Allison (Vinessa Shaw) and Dani (Thora Birch) – accidentally resurrecting the evil hags on Halloween night, 300 years after their execution during the Salem witch trials. The children defeat the trio at the end, but seeing as they came back from the dead once, it seems the sisters are about to do it again in the sequel. How they’ll do so remains to be seen, but now that this announcement’s arrived, stay tuned for more news on Hocus Pocus 2.
