There isn’t much information regarding the plot of the sequel. However, Disney did share a short teaser clip where two young women light the black flame candle. The clip ends with Winifred Sanderson screaming, “Lock up your children! Yes, Salem, we’re back!”

Director Anne Fletcher spoke about the original film’s legacy in a statement last year.

“I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as Hocus Pocus,” Fletcher says. “Fans around the world have embraced these characters and have made this film a Halloween tradition whose popularity continues to grow, and how lucky am I to be back at Disney with these three extraordinarily talented ladies in the iconic roles they created, as well as our fabulous new additions to the cast?”
