Based on the Hocus Pocus 2 trailer, the upcoming movie will not be adapting Hocus Pocus’s sequel novel, as was thought, nor will certainly it be utilizing its approach of reanimating the Sanderson sisters. Ready to launch on Disney+ on September 30, 2022, Hocus Pocus 2 will act as a sequel to the initial Hocus Pocus flick from 1993. Hocus Pocus 2 will certainly include a new group of high school pupils trying to conserve Salem from the Sanderson sisters, a coven of witches that draw the life out of children. While these young adults will certainly be brand-new characters, all 3 of the initial Sanderson sisters actors– Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and also Kathy Najimy– will return to reprise their functions.
Considered that they all passed away at the end of the original Hocus Pocus, the Sanderson sisters’ resurrection was just one of the most crucial points in the Hocus Pocus 2 trailer. While few plot details have actually been released, the trailer showed senior high school pupils Becca (Whitney Peak) and also Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) performing their annual birthday routine for Becca. To their shock, this time around the ritual worked due to Becca getting witch powers on her 16th birthday, mistakenly reviving the Sanderson sisters. This technique for resurrecting the 3 witches is notably various from just how the Sanderson sisters returned in Hocus Pocus as well as the All-New Sequel, the 2018 publication created by A. W. Jantha.
Because the Hocus Pocus 2 trailer featured different characters and also a new resurrection technique, it confirmed that Hocus Pocus 2 will not be adapting the Hocus Pocus novel. These modifications are good for Hocus Pocus 2 due to the fact that they not just avoid the sequel book’s problems however allow the sequel movie to develop a brand-new story while still recognizing the original Hocus Pocus.
Hocus Pocus 2 going in a various direction from Hocus Pocus as well as the All-New Sequel is good due to the fact that the novel was a significant frustration for viewers. The sequel repeated Hocus Pocus’s story but sidelined all of the original lead characters. Due to this, the sequel novel was enjoyable however lacked much of Hocus Pocus’s enjoyable as well as originality.
It is unidentified if any of Hocus Pocus’s initial heroes (Max, Dani, and Allison) will certainly appear in Hocus Pocus 2, the brand-new trio of young adults (Becca, Izzy, and Cassie) does not appear to have any connection to them. In this method, the Hocus Pocus 2 trailer showed that the upcoming release must tell a new story that honors the original Hocus Pocus motion picture rather than adapting the disappointing sequel novel.
