Several months after a "Hocus Pocus" sequel was confirmed, Disney announced that the original stars will return for 'Hocus Pocus 2' coming to Disney+ in fall 2022.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker & Kathy Najimy will be back as the Sanderson Sisters nearly 30 years since the original 1993 film was released. The sequel will see three young girls summon them back to the modern-day town of Salem.

Anna Fletcher ('The Proposal,' '27 Dresses') will direct and says "there is so much fun to be had with these three unbelievable women playing delicious characters from such a beloved film.” An exact release date will be announced later.

"I am so grateful to be able to play a part in bringing these witches back to life, and to be working with my friends at Disney again makes it all the more special. This is a movie for everyone, from the fans who grew up with the first film to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started," Fletcher continued.
