Hocus Pocus 2 released the first clip of the Disney+ movie. D23 Expo has brought fans more Sanderson Sisters content than they knew what to do with, and it looks like the train is continuing. In the clip posted to social media, the witches take flight after trying to find new rides. It looks like all of that time between the two movies will be recognized in this one. Seeing Swiffers and Roombas being used as flying devices is quite amusing at first glance. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy seem to be having the time of their lives during this one. This shines through in every plan that has been released so far. Followed Hocus Pocus seems like the kind of slam dunk that could have hit theaters. But, there’s no doubt that audiences are going to cram into Disney+ to watch this one. Check out the clip for yourself below.
The actress who played Allison in the original film, Vanessa Shaw, spoke to Comicbook.com about the sequel. In her comments, the star said she hadn’t heard much about it yet. But she’s still excited.
“We have to fly!” 🧹

“I would like to know more about it. I haven’t heard anything. So maybe it’s just that it’s too much [early] in pre-production or maybe it’s something completely different from the original. I didn’t hear anything, unfortunately. Sorry,” Shaw explained. “That movie just blew my mind to be able to do that movie as a young kid growing up on Disney movies. It was just an amazing second film to have made. This led me to love cinema because, until then, I hadn’t done anything so important. I mean, Ladybugs was pretty big for me at first, but three months on set working on this movie, it just shook my world. So to be able to, again, make everyone like it… So hopefully the second one will be just as cool.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Anne Fletcher talked about trying to incorporate many elements that fans loved into the first film. However, this project will also have something to offer newcomers.
“We wanted to incorporate all the people that the fans loved, and when you sat down with all the ingredients and the story, you’re like, how can we make this work?” Fletcher says the outlet. “It was very difficult to try to get them involved, because we talked about it – thoroughly. You try to stay on track with the story, even if they came as a cameo.”
Fletcher continued: “People were like, ‘They could be in the background! and I say to myself, really? Are you going to put the main roles of the first film in the background and be satisfied? You will not be satisfied, you will be angry.
