Hocus Pocus 2 Trailer: The Sanderson Sisters Are Back For More

'90s kids have waited a long, long time for this one, but the time is finally upon us! "Hocus Pocus 2" is nearly here and we even have a first look at the long-awaited sequel to prove it. The original movie was released nearly 30 years ago and, curiously, was released smack dab in the middle of summer by Disney, despite being a clear Halloween season film. That did it precisely no favors and it bombed at the box office. But "Hocus Pocus found new life on home video and cable, making it a generational favorite. Because of that, the Sanderson Sisters are back to terrorize Salem once more.

What was at one point going to be a remake thankfully ended up being a straight-up sequel, coming to Disney+ just in time for the spooky season this year. Ahead of the movie's release later this month, Disney+ presented a new trailer for "Hocus Pocus 2" during D23. Let's have a look.

Anne Fletcher is in the director's chair for "Hocus Pocus 2," having previously directed movies such as "The Guilt Trip" and "Hot Pursuit," as well as TV shows like "Love, Victor" and "This Is Us." Jen D'Angelo, of "Workaholics" and "Young Rock" fame, penned the screenplay, with Lynn Harris producing.

Plus, Doug Jones is returning as Billy Butcherson.
