Fans of one of the year’s most anticipated films are waiting with bated breath for news of Hocus Pocus 2’s release date. Many people’s go-to Halloween movie is the 1993 original, which has now gained cult status. Disney finally confirmed in 2019 that production had begun on a sequel after years of conjecture. Here’s all we know about when you can expect to see Hocus Pocus 2.
Filming on Hocus Pocus 2 began in October 2021, after great anticipation. Adam Shankman, known for films like Hairspray and Step Up, is directing the film. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy will all be back in their original roles as the Sanderson sisters.
No official release date has been given for Hocus Pocus 2, despite widespread anticipation that it will be released in 2022. Director Adam Shankman told Collider that the picture would take around a year to finish post-production, making a release in 2022 extremely doubtful. Further postponement of the release date is possible due to the numerous setbacks and disruptions the COVID-19 pandemic has already caused in the film industry.
Possible Release Window
There has been no confirmation of a release date for Hocus Pocus 2, but there are hints as to when it may arrive in theaters. Typically, Disney prefers to release its kid-friendly movies around the winter holidays. This would put the release of Hocus Pocus 2 around the Halloween of 2023.
The sequel to “Hocus Pocus” could also premiere on Disney’s streaming service, “Disney+.” It’s probable that Disney will release Hocus Pocus 2 via streaming, as many other companies have done during this pandemic. Fans would appreciate the convenience of watching the film from the privacy of their own homes, which could contribute to an increase in ticket sales.
Fans are waiting impatiently for the arrival of Hocus Pocus 2, even if the film’s release date is still up in the air. Fans of all ages continue to watch the original film every year around Halloween. Hocus Pocus 2 is set to be a huge success at the box office thanks to the reunion of the original cast members and the introduction of some exciting new faces.
