Sanderson Sisters Make Their Return
It's almost everyone's favorite childhood characters. The original "Hocus Pocus" film released in 1993 as a comedic horror fantasy.
When a teenager did not believe the stories told to him about the Sanderson Sisters. He thought it was 'just a bunch of Hocus Pocus' until he was left trying to save the city of Salem. After all he's responsible for the three witches coming back to life as he is the virgin who lit the black flame candle on Hallow's Eve.
29 Years later
The smell of children and capturing their souls for the Sandersons' just so the sisters can look and feel young again is not the mission this time around.
The sisters Winifred (Bette Midler) Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mary (Kathy Najimy) have return again 29 years later under different circumstances.
'Hocus Pocus 2' is not about scaring kids away from magic instead it's encouraging them to tap into their post Harry Potter junior wizard fantasies.
Becca (Whitney Peak) is tricked into lighting the candle thanks to Gilbert (Sam Richardson) who is owner of the magic shop that represents where the sisters once lived.
This Halloween season Becca discovers with her friend Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) that another one of their classmates and childhood friends host a house party and did not care to invite the two of them . Instead of dwelling in the betrayal of the friend. Her focus is to stop the Sanderson Sisters from causing issues in Salem. Ways if distracting the sisters is by telling them that the lotion at a local Walgreens is a potion that has childrens souls in it so they can stay youthful.
It's not normal for young children to find these three sisters intimidating. It's interesting to know how 17th Century witches are able to perform Elton John's 'The Bitch Is Back' (instead changing the word to (witches versus bitch). Perhaps it was something they found a way to study while living in honey .
