Because of the original film’s post-release success, the star-studded trio’s witchy alter egos have become famous Halloween icons.
Fans are ecstatic that the cult hit is getting a sequel nearly three decades later.
In 2020, Hocus Pocus 2 will be released, with filmmaker Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) at the helm.
Fans were ecstatic to learn that Midler, Parker, and Najimy will all reprise their villainous roles.
Fabricated Salem sets were created on location in Rhode Island as filming ramped up in the fall of 2021.
Despite the fact that the film has been operating under the moniker “Black Flame Candle,” fans from all around the world have flocked to see the Sanderson sisters in action.
Onlookers have been rewarded with a number of critical set-pieces, Doug Jones as Billy Butcherson, and now the Sandersons themselves.
Instagram user @hocuspocusguide pleased fans by posting many photos of Midler, Parker, and Najimy exiting the set dressed as Sandersons.
Despite the fact that the stars were shielded from prying eyes by holding scrims up as they walked, throng fans were able to get sneak looks.
The “Hocus Pocus: Complete Guide” account has been bringing cult fans up to date on all of the film’s developments.
Sightings of the main cast have always been the most exciting for movie fans. While they aren’t full views of the performers in costume, they generate a lot of interest.
Though it is difficult to tell from the videos, the ensembles appear to be much different from those in the original film.
Sarah’s hairdo and Winifred’s outfit, in particular, have been criticized by fans.
It’s only logical that things will be different in Hocus Pocus 2, which is being made 28 years after the first picture.
In fact, developing a sequel would be pointless if nothing changed. Of course, the key to a successful sequel is to recreate the enchantment of the original film while raising the stakes.
According to the premise, the sequel does not appear to deviate from the original recipe, but everyone will have to wait and see once the Black Flame Candle is re-lit.
