    Talk of a sequel to the beloved 1993 film began several years back, but nothing was made official until now.

    The new film will follow three young women who accidentally bring the Sanderson sisters back to modern-day Salem and now must stop the witches from their never-ending quest for immortality.

    Hocus Pocus director Adam Shankman won't be returning to the flick because of a scheduling conflict, but he'll still serve as an executive producer. Meanwhile, Anne Fletcher will be taking the directing reins.

    Hocus Pocus 2 will debut in fall 2022.
