    40 Brilliant "Hocus Pocus 2" Reactions That Even The Sanderson Sisters Would Get A Lil' Kick Out Of

    "The fact that the Hocus Pocus 2 premiere isn't a national holiday for the girls and the gays is just another reminder of how much work there's left to do in this country."

    Over the weekend, Disney+ released the Hocus Pocus sequel we've been awaiting for 29 years, titled Hocus Pocus 2.

    Winifred Sanderson from "Hocus Pocus 2"

    Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson are back in full form, going head-to-head with three young women who go to high school in Salem. They're a little coven just as interested in witchcraft, as well as the legend of the Sanderson Sisters.

    Becca, Izzy, and Cassie from "Hocus Pocus 2"

    If you want my two cents, it's a perfect movie sequel that did not tarnish the legacy of Hocus Pocus — it's filled with hilarious moments, brilliant callbacks to the first movie, and a message that'll tug at your heartstrings.
