The original 1993 film, considered a cult classic, centered on the Sanderson sisters, a trio of witches resurrected in modern day Salem on Halloween night. The original film was directed by Kenny Ortega, while this new version has Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses) behind the camera.
Filming on Hocus Pocus 2 is underway now and is expected to open in fall 2022.
