Hocus Pocus 2


Bella Cardoza, writer

The Sanderson sisters are back in this new sequel everybody! Hocus Pocus 2 is about two girls that accidentally summon the three sisters back on Halloween night and it’s up to them and their other friends to stop the three sisters before it’s all too late.


If I could name a couple of things I enjoyeded about the movie, it would be the return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as The Sanderson sisters causing havoc and chaos on Halloween once again, and terrorizing a small town at the same time as well. Another thing that I loved about the movie was seeing the return of famous creature actor Doug Jones as Billy Butcherson the zombie servant as he also joins the girls in stopping the Sanderson sisters from terrorizing the small town in the process.


While I did love the return of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Bette Milder, and Doug Jones, a few things that I really enjoyed about this movie was the incorporation of some Easter eggs that are callbacks to the first movie like the first movie being played in one scene of the film, and a couple of other random teenage girls are dressed like the Sanderson sisters themselves.


While those are some of the things that I genuinely loved about the movie, there were a few things that I did not like about the movie. These were that Kenny Ortega, the original director of the first movie, did not come back to direct, and the Sanderson sisters felt underused for the sequel even though the movie was nostalgia bait. However, I still enjoyed it.


If you want something fun for Halloween but not scary, I highly suggest that you check out Hocus Pocus 2 which is now streaming on Disney Plus.
