Watch the Sanderson Sisters reach new heights in a brand new poster for the upcoming sequel to Hocus Pocus. A newly released Hocus Pocus poster for the film gives fans a glimpse of what’s in store for the iconic trio, which are shown taking to the skies on their brooms against a full moon backdrop.
We see the legendary trio zooming through the skies in their chosen modes of transportation in this Twitter post shared by the film’s Twitter account. There are so many different types of brooms in their arsenal that the sisters can see them in front of a giant full moon.
This will enable them to cast a spell or two on the town below, ranging from the classic broom to the new-age Swiffer. In addition, the poster also reveals a returning character, William “Billy” Butcherson (Doug Jones), who is ready to rise from the dead all over again and end the child-eating witches once and for all.
A group of meddling kids nearly turned our leading ladies Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker), and Mary (Kathy Najimy) to dust almost three decades ago after a group of meddling kids foiled their plans. There’s hell to pay, and Salem is about to discover that just as the witches come back, there’s hell to pay.

A group of three high school students, Becca (Whitney Peak), Cassie (Lilia Buckingham), and Izzy (Belissa Escobedo), accidentally summon the long-deceased sisters back from the grave when they perform a ritual. Suddenly, they must embark on a harrowing journey to eliminate the evil witches from the earth for the first time.
There will also be an opportunity to learn how the Sanderson Sisters evolved from being the iconic witches we know, love, and fear into the new shenanigans (and hopeful musical numbers!) presented to the audience. Hannah Waddingham, a newcomer to the franchise, recently shared a clip that delved into some of this backstory.
In it, she instilled mystical and immortal ideas into the heads of young Winnie, Sarah, and Mary. Tony Hale and Sam Richardson, both of whom were on Veep, will be joining the cast this time as Froy Gutierrez (from Teen Wolf).
In a fun twist on a classic, former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants Ginger Minj, Cornbread Jeté, and Kahmora Hall will take on the roles of the famous trio of witches – hopefully, lip-syncing for their lives if they don’t get burned!
The sequel will be dropping on Disney+ in just over a week on September 30, so you’ve still got time to take in all the images, trailers, teasers, and more information that’s been coming in faster than you can say “amuck amuck amuck!”.
