In 2023, the third installment of Hocus Pocus, one of the greatest comedies ever made, will be released.
The 1993 film Hocus Pocus, which was written by Neil Corbett and Mick Garris, was directed by Kenny Ortega (Julie And The Phantoms Season 2). The movie made enough money on its first release on July 16, 1993, by Walt Disney Pictures, to bring in $39.5 million globally.
Walt Disney Pictures later revealed a sequel in July 2014, anticipating the enthusiasm of Hocus Pocus devotees. The entire plot revolved around a comical trio of witches that Adam Shankman, the movie’s main character, brought back to life. Disney hasn’t officially announced Hocus Pocus 3 yet, but if Hocus Pocus 2’s success is any indicator, it may very well happen.
The US debut of the sequel on Disney+ on September 30 attracted the most viewers. Its initial three days of the sale were the basis for that popularity, and there is little doubt that it will continue to rise during Halloween.
The horror-comedy of the narrative in 1993 was well received by the audience. Let’s learn more about the second Hocus-Pocus sequel, which is more likely to debut in the first half of 2023.
Where to watch Hocus Pocus?
When we want to unwind with a series during this spooky season, Hocus Pocus is exactly what we’re looking for since it’s amusing in the greatest ways. In 2021, though, where will we be able to watch it?
It goes without saying that we think it’s a part of Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween schedule, in which case it will air for the full month. If you’re interested in knowing when it will broadcast on Freeform, we also have a schedule for you. If you can avoid it, you might, however, prefer to watch it without commercials. For you, we also have such specifics.
On October 3 at 4:35 PM EST, October 5 at 9 PM, October 10 at 5:30 PM, October 14 at 8:50 PM, October 16 at 7:15 PM, October 17 at 5:10 PM, October 23 at 6:05 PM, October 24 at 8:45 PM PM, on October 28 at 9 PM, on October 30 at 8:50 PM, and finally on October 31 at 2:35 PM and at 9:20 PM.
What happens though if you can’t access Freeform? We have the answer for you! In addition to being available to stream on Disney Plus in October, Hocus Pocus is also available to rent on YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Amazon Prime Video, and Vudu.
Hocus Pocus 3 Cast
We would appreciate seeing our three favorite actresses, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimi reprise their roles as the three Sanderson sisters, Winnie, Sarah, and Mary. And without them, Hocus Pocus wouldn’t exist. Whitney Peak (Gossip Girl) as Becca, Belissa Escobedo as Izzy, and Lilia Buckingham as Cassie are all new cast members that have the potential to return.
Since Hocus pocus two isn’t released for another 27 years, the cast will be completely different from the previous one. So, here is the cast for the next film:
- Bettie Midler in the character of Winifred Sanderson
- Kathy Najimy in the character of Mary Sanderson
- Sarah Jessica Parker in the character of Sarah Sanderson
- Max Dennison in the character of Omri Katz
- Max’s crush Allison in the character of Vinessa Shaw
Hocus Pocus 3 Trailer
Unfortunately, we can’t even fetch any. Hocus Pocus 3 has not yet been confirmed, thus it is hard to say when production will begin. As was already mentioned, the first Hocus Pocus 2 trailer was shown on June 28, 2022, despite having a thin premise.
In addition to including recognizable elements from Hocus Pocus, such as the Black Flame Candle, the teaser also made reference to the Sanderson Sisters’ potential return. There is a lot to be excited about, but we’d expect to see a full trailer before the movie’s release.
You may see it again here in case you missed it the first time:
Hocus Pocus 3 Plot
We anticipate that the plot of Hocus Pocus 3 will be similar to that of Hocus Focus 2, in which a youngster by the name of Adam Shankman brought the three witches back to life, creating a comedy-filled tale.
After 10 years, a young man by the name of Max traveled to Selam, lit a candle with a black flame, and led Sanderson into a specific nation. The narrative was made more thrilling to watch by Dani’s (Max’s sister) and a local girl’s efforts to stop the witches from obtaining the power of every child in the City. Because of this, Hocus-Pocus 3 will most likely include adventure, more drama, and a dash of horror-comedy like the original one.
Hocus Pocus 2 Release Date
Because Disney hasn’t publicly announced Hocus Pocus 3 yet, there isn’t a release date as of yet. Disney could decide to hurry and make another movie featuring the Sanderson sisters if the second season is successful; else, we would have to wait another 29 years.
Even if that does happen, you probably won’t see the third movie until Halloween 2023, and that’s if it even gets authorized. Keep checking back here for updates as we learn more.
Hocus Pocus 3 has still not received a formal announcement on its precise release date, but we can presumably anticipate the second installment in the fall of 2023. However, no precise release date has been announced as of yet.
Disney+ will be the only streaming service where you can view Hocus Pocus 2 starting on September 30, 2022.
