Who Are the Casts in Hocus Pocus 2?

On Halloween night in Salem, Massachusetts, a teenage virgin unintentionally brings back to life the three evil Sanderson sisters, Winnie, Mary, and Sarah.



Hocus Pocus 2 follows the 1993 film of the same name. The Sanderson sisters, a trio of wicked witches, were the focus of the first film.

In Hocus Pocus 2, two teenagers named Becca and Izzy celebrate Halloween and Becca’s sixteenth birthday by accidentally resurrecting the Sanderson sisters. The Sanderson sisters are resurrected as a result of this.



Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Sanderson in the film, recently said that she had never given a second installment of Hocus Pocus any thought.

She attributed the success of the sequel’s production to Bette Midler, whose character Winnie Sanderson she portrays.
