Hocus Pocus 2

Three young women must stop child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.


Why watch this film?

We had to wait 29 years for the return of the Sanderson sisters - and it was worth it. 'Hocus Pocus 2' is a nostalgic journey through one of the greatest Halloween classics of the 1990s. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are back in the skin of the most beloved Disney witches. The new story shows how they became sorceresses and features three incredible young actresses giving life to the newer version of the trio. Fast-forwarding to the present day we have Becca (Whitney Peak), Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) and Cassie (Lilia Buckingham) as the girls who face the Sandersons - because, just like in the original feature, after being burned at the stake in the 16th century, they are brought back by a teenager thanks to a spell they cast before dying. 'Hocus Pocus 2' rescues the same identity of the other movie, with the same tone of jokes, music and lightness of the plot. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy remain great and guarantee great laughs. In addition, the feature gives a humanized look to the witches, since now their mission is no longer to rejuvenate themselves by feeding on children. The message of the movie speaks of friendship, family, unity as a whole, and the power of women, with some feminist touches. This is a sequel that manages to be as good as the original version - and the best part is that it doesn't worry about going beyond that or becoming a big franchise like Disney loves to do, even though there is that space.
