Hocus Pocus 2 casts spell on fans as first reactions heap praise on sequel
Share this post:

Welcome back sistaaaaaahs! Hocus Pocus 2 is finally here.

After waiting almost 30 years, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and Bette Middler return as the Sanderson Sisters in the eagerly anticipated sequel to the 1993 classic.

The film landed on Disney Plus today (and you can read our review here, where we gave it 3.5 stars) taking fans of the franchise back to Salem as the black candle is lit once more summoning the fabled witches to wreak havoc.

The film sees Parker, Najimy, and Middler reprise their roles as Sarah, Mary, and Winifred Sanderson alongside the likes of Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham.

The film also stars Doug Jones, Hannah Waddingham, Froy Gutierrez, Sam Richardson, and Tony Hale among others.

And as people flock to feast their eyes on the sequel, fans have excitedly taken to social media to wish others a ‘happy Hocus Pocus 2 day’ while praising the installment.

‘I loved this movie I’m rewatching it again. It made me tear up this movie was absolutely beautiful!!’ One fan posted to Twitter.

Another added they were ready for another sequel, writing: ‘GIVE ME 3 ALREADY!!’

’29 years I’ve waited for #hocuspocus2 my childhood is complete,’ another said.

Many commented on how emotional the film was, claiming by the final scenes they were in tears.

‘I cried at the end but I loved it. I really really did. The homage to the original. The opening was magical. Bravo SANDERSON sisters,’ one user posted.

Another said: ‘No I’m actually crying my eyes out at #HocusPocus2.’

‘I cried watching #HocusPocus2 and I wasn’t expecting that,’ a third user posted.

‘Was not expecting to cry but that was a gorgeous film #HocusPocus2,’ another posted.

Director Anne Fletcher previously revealed that making a sequel to the movie was ‘daunting’.

Speaking to SFX Magazine she said: ‘It’s a daunting task to take on something like this with the fandom because you don’t want to blow it,’ she told SFX Magazine.

‘It is very scary, I’ve never done a sequel.’

She added that she agreed to do the film as it gave an insight into the Sanderson sisters’ backstory and their time as young witches.

‘Those are the things that I love the most – within the grounding you can be silly and stupid, and over the top and crazy,’ she added.

“But now the fans get a little peek into the earlier years of our witches. Which to me is a blast. So I took the movie for that particular reason.’

Hocus Pocus 2 is available to stream now on Disney Plus.

[STORY] BEHIND THE FINE FACE (Episode 03)

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
