Well, we have good news for all the Hocus Pocus fans. The sequel of the movie will be released on Friday, September 30, 2022. This announcement was made by Adam Shankman who is an American television director, producer, and choreographer. Disney has hired a director for the project but they haven’t yet revealed his name as they want to keep it secret till the official trailer gets out.

The sequel has been in development since 2013 after Disney bought Miramax which originally produced Hocus Pocus back in 1993. It took a while to get things going because they were busy making other projects such as Maleficent 2 which also happens to be another Disney-owned film coming out next year (2022).

You’ll be able to see the movie on Friday, September 30, 2022. The film will be released by Universal Studios Home Entertainment and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Pictures (MGM). It’s a sequel to the 1993 cult classic that was directed by Kenny Ortega and stars Bette Midler.

It’s been confirmed by various sources
The Hocus Pocus 2 movie is expected to be released in 2022. However, there is no official confirmation on this yet and you should wait for an update on the same. We have reasons to believe that it will get released in either 2020 or 2021. Most of the directors are busy with their projects and Disney does not want any other director before Adam Shankman Director of The Pacifier and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 takes over this project officially as he is already working on it for a long time now.
The cast for this movie has also been confirmed by various sources including IMDB, Hollywood Reporter etc., but not officially by Disney itself yet! So we can’t tell which actors will be included in Hocus Pocus 2 movie yet, because nothing is confirmed at this moment!
Disney has hired a director for the project.
Adam Shankman is the director for Hocus Pocus 2. He directed the films The Pacifier, Hotel for Dogs and Rock of Ages. He has also choreographed several films including A Walk to Remember, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and Step Up 3D.
Well, it’s not yet confirmed by the Disney studio. We do hope that there will be a Hocus Pocus 2 movie. It is going to be released in 2022. If you have watched the first part, then get ready for the second one too which will be released this year on Sep 30th, 2022.
