What is 'Hocus Pocus 2' about?
The Sanderson sisters return in "Hocus Pocus 2" after three young women accidentally bring them back on Halloween.
The official synopsis for the film reads: "It's been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow's Eve."
Where can I watch the 'Hocus Pocus 2' trailer?
The first official trailer for "Hocus Pocus 2" dropped at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. The one minute and 53 second trailer features the three witches from the iconic first film: Winifred, Sarah and Mary Sanderson, which are played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, respectively. The trailer shows a flashback scene of the Sanderson sisters as young girls when they were banished from Salem and when Winifred is gifted her iconic one-eyed spellbook. The trailer then jumps to three hundred and seventy years later to present day Salem and introduces a string of new cast members including a young girl played by Whitney Peak ("Gossip Girl").
In June, fans got a sneak peek of what to expect from the upcoming film when Disney dropped a one-minute and 21-second teaser trailer.
