Per Deadline.com, the plot of Hocus Pocus 2 focuses on three women who magical bring the three iconic Sanderson Sisters to modern day times in Salem. These three women are now tasked with stopping the Sanderson girls for wreaking even more havoc on the world.
Hocus Pocus 2 will be directed by Anne Fletcher who will be taking over from Adam Shankman. Unfortunately, Shankman is unable to direct the sequel as he is currently signed on to direct another sequel – Enchanted.
However, he will receive Executive Producer credits for Hocus Pocus 2 and addresses how he will miss directing some of his favorite actresses in the quote below:
“As heartbroken as I am that I won’t be able to direct my friends Better, Sarah Jessica, and Kathy in what is sure to be nothing short of a major event for Disney+ due to scheduling conflicts, I couldn’t be more pleased to be handing over the reins to Anne, who has brought so much laughter and joy into people’s lives with her previous work,” Shankman sai. “I am greatful and proud to help shepherd this ingenious project as executive producer alongside producer Lynn Harris, whom I have loved and admired as a colleague and friend since she helped get me the job choreographing Boogie Nights.”
An exact release date has not yet been announced for Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+ but you can count on MickeyBlog.com to bring the first to bring it to you as soon as it is announced!
