A number of folks love a great old school Disney princess film. Lovely princess, good-looking prince, fortunately ever after, yadda yadda yadda. For others, although, that’s not fairly sufficient. Some folks want a bit extra spooky magic (and Bette Midler) of their film evening. For these folks, Hocus Pocus is the proper Disney movie.
Right here’s what we all know concerning the ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Disney Plus launch date.
Rumors of a Hocus Pocus 2 have been swirling for years. Manner again in 2014, Disney was engaged on a supernatural movie about witches starring (and produced by) Tina Fey. Everybody freaked out and thought it was a Hocus Pocus sequel or remake — but it surely wasn’t.
Rumors additionally made the rounds in 2016, 2017, and 2018, however there was no affirmation of a Hocus Pocus 2 till we lastly obtained the official phrase in October of 2019 that Disney was making a sequel to the 1993 cult basic. The screenplay was written by Workaholics author and co-producer Jen D’Angelo. In March of 2020, we came upon that the movie formally has a director: Adam Shankman (whose identify can also be hooked up to Disenchanted, the sequel to Enchanted).
Past that, although, particulars are fairly restricted. In line with the IMDb web page for Hocus Pocus 2, the movie is at the moment in pre-production. Proper after Adam Shankman signed on to direct the sequel, the COVID-19 pandemic began affecting mainly each single manufacturing, so it’s fairly protected to say they haven’t began filming for Hocus Pocus 2 but.
The consideration I really feel in shifting these beloved legacies ahead is greater than I may have dreamt. I hope to please all of the loyal followers. That is what I attempted to do with Hairspray. Thats what my objective is right here. Want me luck! xo https://t.co/6JSnJUlJRr

If we needed to guess, we’d say that Hocus Pocus 2 will almost definitely be coming to Disney Plus someday in 2021. And provided that it’s a Halloween film, we wouldn’t be stunned to see it slated for the autumn — perhaps even Halloween weekend (the vacation falls on a Sunday subsequent 12 months). We’ll have to attend some time for the sequel, however hey — a minimum of we don’t have to attend 300 years just like the Sanderson sisters did, proper?
