The highly anticipated sequel to the 1993 fantasy-comedy “Hocus Pocus” has finally arrived on Disney+, and the nostalgic reunion with the cult classic has many ’90s kids in their feels. The long-awaited follow-up to the original follows three modern-day Salem teenagers — Becca, Izzy, and Cassie — who unwittingly unleash the Sanderson witches with the infamous Black Flame Candle. The teens must race against time to thwart the wicked plans of the revenge-seeking sisters before it’s too late.
“Hocus Pocus 2” marks the return of original cast members Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson sisters. Along with the iconic actors coming together nearly 30 years later, the sequel introduces a lineup of up-and-coming talented young actors, including the trio who play the younger counterparts of the Sanderson sisters — Juju Journey Brener, Taylor Paige Henderson, and Nina Kitchen. Though the sequel to the ultimate Halloween staple has Hollywood A-listers attached to it, the phenomenal performances of the young Sanderson sisters have bewitched viewers.
