Who are The Three Sanderson Sisters?

The witches in the 1993 American fantasy comedy Hocus Pocus (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) are accidentally brought back to life on Halloween night in Salem, Massachusetts, by a virgin adolescent guy (Omri Katz).



Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris wrote the screenplay, which is directed by Kenny Ortega. Jen D’Angelo wrote and Anne Fletcher directed the sequel Hocus Pocus 2. It premiered on Disney+ on September 30, 2022.

Hocus Pocus 2

The long-awaited sequel to the enduring Halloween favorite, Hocus Pocus 2, premieres today only on Disney+.




The live-action comedy follows the delightfully evil Sanderson sisters as they cause mayhem in contemporary Salem: Winifred (Disney Legend Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker), and Mary (Kathy Najimy).

The Black Flame Candle was last lighted 29 years ago, reviving the witches, and now the sisters are returning for more than just retribution.

The witches could initially seem to be identical to how they did in 1993 when Hocus Pocus was originally released. However, the creators of the sequel intended their costumes to resemble the originals rather than be exact reproductions.



Salvador Perez, the designer of the costumes, adds, “We tried to update their looks.” Additionally, new costumes would be required because the witches in the previous movie dissolved at the conclusion.
