It appears that the show makers have successfully set everything according to their schedule and on time.
More About Hocus Pocus 2
In lead Bette Midler, famous actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will reprise their roles in the sequel. Thanks to Jen D’Angelo for penning down Hocus Pocus part 2 and to Hairspray’s Adam Shankman, who sits in the director’s chair. Sadly, Shankman had to leave the helm as he struggled with setting commitments with another Disney sequel set to release this year, called Disenchanted. So replacing Shankman, we have Anne Fletcher as director, keeping Shankman as an executive producer.

Hocus Pocus 2 Cast And Characters
We have Bette Midler coming back on screen as Winifred for the lead role, with Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah and Kathy Najimy as Mary Sanderson. Talking about others on the cast members list, we are unsure about their return. Actors in the last film, like Omri Katz for the role of Max Dennison, Thora Birch for Dani Dennison and Vinessa Shaw as Allison, have no confirmation for the return.
Although another confirmed appearance will be of Veep star Sam Richardson, we do not know of in a roll.

Hocus Pocus 2 Plot: What Will Hocus Pocus 2 Be About?
From the official announcement that came out last year in May, we learned about the storyline of Hocus Pocus part 2. The sequel will be about three Young women mistakenly bringing back the Sanderson sisters to present-day Salem and stopping those witches from creating trouble and chaos in the world. The plot looks similar to the book sequel that came out in July 2018 and was about Max and Allison’s daughter Poppy, her friend Travis and a girl called Isabella. We cannot be sure if the sequel shows, but let’s wait for some more news on the plot.
