Hocus Pocus 2’s Second Trailer Teases The Sanderson Sisters’ Sordid Origin Story




On September 9, 2022, Walt Disney Studios dropped a second teaser for “Hocus Pocus 2” on YouTube, and it kicks off on a compelling note: a sneak peek at the origin story of the Sanderson sisters. We flash back centuries and see them as children, with Taylor Paige Henderson as Winnie, Juju Journey Brener as Sarah, and Nina Kitchen as Mary. They’re running through a dark forest as a disembodied voice banishes them from Salem permanently. Visibly worried, they stop running as a black bird with yellow and red wings flies at great speed toward them, shapeshifting into a human as it reaches the ground.

This suspicious character — portrayed by Hannah Waddingham — speaks with the Sandersons and notes that the people of Salem were right to fear them. With an expression of interest on her face, she hands them their famous book of spells while telling them that magic can be a source of unity and wishing Winnie a happy birthday. With that, the teaser jumps ahead to the modern day, where we see the Sandersons brought back with the aid of the black flame candle, prompting them to get up to all kinds of mischief and mayhem as only they can. To round out the trailer, Doug Jones returns as Billy Butcherson.

Though it seems to follow many of the same beats as the original, exploring the history of the Sanderson sisters should be a highlight of “Hocus Pocus 2.” The film arrives on Disney+ on September 30, 2022.
