We have been handed a Halloween surprise in the form of a new trailer for the widely anticipated sequel, Hocus Pocus 2, which will be released in just a few weeks. The second trailer was presented to the public for the first time at the D23 Expo. In it, we got a glimpse of Hannah Waddingham in her role as The Witch, as well as Doug Jones in his return as the “good zombie” Billy Butcherson.
If you were unaware of the demand for the film, the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel was published by Disney in late June, and in its first 24 hours, the clip racked up more than 40 million views. The Sanderson Sisters make their way back to Salem to wreak havoc on the town in the sequel, but what else can we anticipate from this installment? Everything you need to know about Hocus Pocus 2 is included in this article.
