The mystical Hocus Pocus is back again for a sequel

The great “Hocus Pocus” movie was brought back again after 29 years with a sequel. The Sanderson sisters are back and better than ever, with new songs and characters like never seen before. 

With this movie having a different plot than the original, it gave more background of the Sanderson sisters, especially when their past comes back to haunt them. 

Not only did it bring back some of the original characters, but it also brought back the same mischievous fun the sisters always have that leads to trouble. 

Through the sisters’ backstory, you learn more about them and where they came from, which is why they do what they do. This film was made for future generations to enjoy, seeing as it didn’t give the same spark as the original. 

The effects and color scheme of this movie was brilliant and very colorful, giving viewers the whole magical experience, primarily because there were more powers used in this movie. 

“Hocus Pocus 2” was filled with great acting from many original cast members, which included Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, and Doug Jones; they were able to play the roles spot-on from the original and even funnier. 

“Hocus Pocus” brought back memories for everyone. When there was mention of a sequel, many jumped at the opportunity to experience that same evil once-in-a-lifetime spooky season movie. 

All in all, everything was good, aside from the plot difference, which made it unique, but there were sentimental moments and many funny moments. If you want to enjoy this fun magical movie, go to Disney+ and give it a watch.
