Hocus Focus 2 is coming our way this Halloween season, and Disney+ finally gave us a taste of things to come. The first teaser trailer for this highly-anticipated sequel is here, and it sees Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy coming back to put another spell on us as the Sanderson sisters.

Even though we get a glimpse of the three notorious witches at the end of the trailer, the focus isn’t entirely on them this time around. The trailer opens with a younger generation of magic-obsessed teens bringing the Sanderson sisters back to life.

“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”, reads the film’s official logline.

The young cast includes Whitney Peak, Belissa Escobedo, and Lilia Buckingham, playing the trio of teenagers who accidentally resurrected the Sanderson sisters. Doug Jones (The Shape of Water), Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Tony Hale (Veep), and Sam Richardson (The Afterparty) are also set to star.

Hocus Pocus 2 will premiere on September 30 and it will stream exclusively on Disney+.
