'Hocus Pocus 2' Movie Review
The Sanderson Sisters are Back In Belated Comedy Sequel ‘Hocus Pocus 2’. Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker reprise their iconic witchy roles for the fun follow-up to the 1993 movie.
Releasing on Disney+ September 30th, ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ is aiming to work on several fronts: as a sequel to Disney’s 1993 fantasy comedy and as a family-friendly entry in a Halloween movie marathon. It is admirably successful in both efforts. The original ‘Hocus Pocus’, directed by Kenny Ortega, spun the yarn of the Sanderson sisters – Bette Midler’s sarcastic Winifred, Kathy Najimy’s goofy Mary and Sarah Jessica Parker’s ditzy Sarah – who, legend tells, were hung in the town of Salem as witches. Swearing that they will return for retribution, they cast a curse upon Salem.
